PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing aboard the Monhoff Motorsports No. 35 machine on Saturday night, Sean Becker returned to victory lane at the Placerville Speedway as he recorded his third win of the 2015 season.
“Dan Monhoff and myself had not won together in a long time and it was almost a sigh of relief to get back to victory lane on Saturday night,” Sean Becker explained. “I had a blast racing with him and his team and thank him for the opportunity.”
Timing the Monhoff Motorsports No. 35 machine in 10th fastest during qualifying time trials, the Roseville, CA driver would move forward from his third row starting position in his heat to finish in the third position.
Gridding the field from the third row for the 25-lap A Main event, Becker would race his way by Greg DeCaires and Jimmy Trulli early in the race as he moved into the second spot and began his pursuit of race leader, Mike Benson.
Racing in thick traffic, Becker would hound Benson as the duo raced wheel-to-wheel until the 14th lap when Becker forged ahead and took command of the race. A lap 15 caution would give Becker clear track, and when the race came back to life he would continue to flex his muscle as he kept Benson at bay and picked up his third victory of the 2015 season.
With the speedway sharing the fairgrounds with a fire camp on this night as firefighters continue to fight local forest fires, Becker made a point the acknowledge the real heroes on this night.
“We come out here and we race these cars each week and we sign these things called hero cards after each race, but we are not really heroes,” Becker said in victory lane. “There are true heroes here tonight who put their lives on the line to fight these fires and protect us, and I hope they enjoyed themselves tonight.”
Becker would like to thank Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Cherry Street Mini Storage, Menne Ranch Hay Inc., Astro Titanium, Ponybracket.com, Hunt’s Race World, Molecule, Shaver Racing Engines, FK Rod Ends, and K&N for their support in 2015.
