PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to action with the King of the West Series after a six-week break in the schedule, Jarrett Soares and his Soares Motorsports team would pick up a 16th place finish on Saturday night at the Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA.
“I put us behind in time trials, but we seemed to race okay for the rest of the night,” Soares said.
Getting over the cushion during the qualifying session, Soares would time the American Tool & Mfg/C&H Vet Ent./Performance Powder Coating No. 12 machine in 21st fastest.
Lining up in the last row of his heat race, Soares would finish in the sixth spot, and move into the feature event. Lining up 20th in the A Main, Soares would avoid some of the incidents that took place prior to a lap getting completed.
Once the race went green, Soares was able to work his way forward, as he raced with some of the series’ top drivers, and battled for a Top-10 position. Running in the 11th spot, Soares would get out of shape and come into contact with the wall on the seventh lap, and bring out the caution.
Making repairs to his machine, Soares would restart the race though he would still have issues and would continue to run at the back of the pack. On the 13th lap, Soares would get into the grease in turns one and two, and his second caution of the night would force him back to his trailer with a 16th place finish.
“It was a disappointing end to our night, but I have to thank all of the guys that help out, and support me and teach me race after race,” Soares added.
Jarrett and his Soares Motorsports team would like to thank American Tool & Mfg., C&H Vet Ent., Performance Powder Coating, Addicted Industries Clothing, A.R.T., Bailey Brothers Racing Engines, Excel Environmental, Simpson Race Products, McMahan Motorsports, CSI Shocks, and Brad Scadden Designs for their support.
ON TAP: Soares will now follow the King of the West Series as they head to the Santa Maria Speedway on Friday night, and to the Ventura Raceway on Saturday night.
