Statler Shakes Down Engine At Silver Dollar Speedway; Runs Fifth


PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking a problematic engine to the Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night, Jason Statler and his DF Rios Motorsports team played with some different things under the hood and on their car and ended up finishing in the fifth spot.

“We used Friday night as a test session essentially,” Jason Statler said. “We wanted to figure out this engine that had been giving us some grief, and wanted to try some things on our car.”

Timing the DF Rios Motorsports/Amerikote/Riley Collins Auto Body No. 00 entry in sixth fastest in qualifying time trials, Statler would pick up a second place finish during heat race action.

By way of his time trial effort, Statler would end up in the nightly redraw, where the six-pill would line him up in the third row of the 25-lap feature event.

“With our engine running well, and doing what we wanted it to with the changes we threw at it, we then decided to try some things on our car for the A-Main,” Statler added.

On a track that still stayed pretty fast, Statler would battle much of the night with Bobby McMahan as they fought for position inside the Top-Five. With everyone staying the same speed, Statler was happy with his car as he finished in the fifth spot.

“I thought we had a good car, we just have a little more tuning to do, and we will see if we can be better this Friday night back in Chico, CA,” Statler noted.

Jason Statler would like to thank DF Rios Motorsports, Amerikote, Riley Collins Auto Body, SCI, Kaeding Performance, Kistler Racing Engines, Simpson Race Products, Yak Graphics, Factory Kahne Shocks, Ultra Shield, Rod End Supply, Santomauro, Stephanie’s Custom Interior, and Nevada City Auto Service for their continued support.

ON TAP: Statler and his team will again make the trip to the Silver Dollar Speedway this Friday night.
