(PETERSEN MEDIA- Marysville, CA)- For the third time in 2016 Roseville, CA driver, Sean Becker stood in Civil War Series presented by Flowmaser victory lane. Getting by Shane Golobic on the race’s opening lap, Becker would fend off both Golobic and Andy Fosberg to score the win on a very rough and tumble Marysville Raceway on Saturday night.

“It is awesome to get our third Civil War Series feat event win, and to do it at three different tracks makes it that much more special,” Becker said in victory lane in regards to his previous two wins at the Placerville Speedway and Petaluma Speedway. “Dan Monhoff gave me a great car, and the pill draw worked out in our favor for the Dash, and here we are.”

Lining up on the front row alongside fellow former series champion, Shane Golobic, it would be Golobic getting the jump, but Becker would ride the rim around turns one and two and take the lead as the field headed down the back stretch.

The first 10-laps would be hampered by stoppages, but a lap 10 restart would set up a 19-lap green flag run that featured action all over the speedway.  With Becker getting the

jump on the aforementioned restart, Andy Forsberg would work his way into the second spot as Shane Golobic and DJ Freitas raced for position behind the lead duo.

With bikes and wheelies thrilling the crowd, Becker would be tough up front as he would slice through lapped traffic, though it would allow Forsberg to close in on Becker at times. With Becker looking to be well on his way to the win, the caution flag would fly on the 29th lap setting up a green-white-checkered finish.

Since the race had less than five laps remaining in it, the restart would be single file which allowed Becker to mash his throttle and race away to score his third victory of the season.

Behind him, Andy Forsberg would finish in the second spot, and extend his series point lead with just two races to go, while Shane Golobic took the final spot on the podium. DJ Freitas would turn in very strong showing as he held down the fourth spot at the finish line while Justyn Cox completed the top-five.

Mason Moore would finish in the sixth spot, Chase Madjic seventh, Justin Sanders would charge from 14th to finish eighth, while Bradley Terrell would overcome issues on the opening lap to charge form the back to finish ninth, and Koen Shaw would round out the Top-10.

Cody Lamar would continue to dominate time trials at the Marysville Raceway as the newly crowned track champion earned his 11th fast time award of the season at the speedway.

A three-heat program was in affect on this night and wins would go to Mason Moore, Justyn Cox, and Shane Golobic, while Sean Becker won the Dash.
