Sean Becker Seventh at Silver Dollar Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Two more nights of racing action are in the books for Sean Becker and Van Lare Motorsports. After having issues during the 15th Annual Mark Forni Classic on Saturday night, Becker picked up a seventh place finish at Silver Dollar Speedway on Sunday night.

“I am so grateful that Jim Van Lare has been busting his tail to let us go racing as much as we do,” Sean Becker said. “Unfortunately, I drove like a donkey all weekend.”

Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, 46 cars checked in for the Mark Forni Classic and track officials opted to use the Sprint Car Challenge Tour format.

Timing the Pro Aggregate/Bianchi Farms/All About Fire Protection backed No. 5v machine in third fastest in a loaded qualifying group, Becker would race his way into the redraw as he picked up the heat race win.

Pulling the seven pill, Becker lined up in the fourth row for the 25-lap feature event on a very slick Placerville Speedway racing surface.

Jumping into the sixth spot when the race came to life, Becker would hold steady as he worked the cushion at the ¼ mile bullring. Continuing to run sixth, issues on the 17th lap would see another car get out of sorts in front of ‘The Shark’ and making contact with the wall, Becker would pull into the pit area, and his night would come to a close.

Heading to Silver Dollar Speedway on Sunday night as the track returned to action for the first time since early March, Becker would time in 17th fastest amongst the 39 drivers checked in.

Running sixth in his heat race, ‘The Shark’ would run second in the ‘B’ and make his way into the 25-lap feature event.

Coming from the rear of the field, Becker would put on a nice charge that saw him work his way into the Top-10. Continuing to race his way forward, Becker was able to rally all the way up to a seventh place finish when the race came to an end.

“I am super proud to be asocial with Pro Aggregate, as they helped sponsor all three divisions on Sunday night,” Becker added. ‘We ended up okay, but I wish we could have given them a better showing.”

Becker and Van Lare Motorsports would like to thank Pro Aggregate, All About Fire Protection, Bianchi Farms, Shark Racing Engines, CCI, Van Lare Steering Repair, and Triple X Race Co. for their support in 2020.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-17, Wins-3, Top 5’s- 11, Top-10’s- 14

ON TAP: Becker is unsure when his next race will be at this time.
