PETERSEN MEDIA: Hitting the dirt for a pair of races in Placerville, CA and Watsonville, CA, Steven Tiner picked up a hard fought seventh place finish at the Ocean Speedway on Friday night, before mechanical gremlins knocked him out of Saturday night’s race at the Placerville Speedway as he made a guest cameo in the Snow No. 7 machine.
“We were really good at Ocean on Friday night, we just had a little incident that set us back, and on Saturday night, we had some mechanical issues in the Bob Snow machine that really gave us fits all night.”
Friday night in Watsonville, CA, Tiner timed his Larry Davis Farms/Wright Process Systems/BR Motorsports No. 94 machine in 13th fastest.
Starting on the front row of his heat race, Tiner was able to grab the win, and earn a redraw berth, where the four pill put him in the second row for the 30-lap feature event.
Getting into the third spot on the start of the race, Tiner hooked up in an entertaining battle with Shane Golobic for the second spot as the duo exchanged numerous slide jobs.
A string of yellow flags slowed the event on a few occasions, and double file restarts were not kind to Tiner as he seemed to lose track position on each restart. Running in the fourth spot, contact with Jonathan Allard ensued, and it resulted in Tiner climbing the back stretch wall, and as he gathered it up, he was back in the 10th spot.
In the closing laps, the Visalia, CA driver was able to pick up a few spots, as he came home with a seventh place finish.
“It was a good night for the most part,” he said. “We have some good speed right now, and all we can do is try and stay fast with the Johnny Key Classic coming up this weekend.”
Saturday night saw Tiner climb aboard the Bob Snow machine at the Placerville Speedway, and things were rough on the team from the start of the night.
“It was a wild night, but I have to thank the Snow family for the chance to hop in their car and see if I could provide them with any feedback,” he added.
Losing a rear-end in hot laps, the team thrashed to get it ready for time trials, and the result was Tiner timing in 19th quickest.
Lining up fifth in his heat, a sixth place finish as they fought brake issues, forced Tiner to the B Main event.
Finishing second on the B, Tiner earned the transfer to the feature event, but in the early goings of the feature, the engine began to lay down, and Tiner elected to pull in, and call it a night.
“They were hoping I could help provide them some feedback, but unfortunately we had one of those nights where things just went wrong, and we chased things to get them right. Again, I want to thank them for the opportunity.”
Steven and his Steven Tiner Racing team would like to thank Larry Davis Farms, Wright Process Systems, BR Motorsports, King Racing Products, Elma Lanes, Harvest Supply, Powder Coat-It, SRP, Wilwood, FSR, Dan Olson Race Products, Sander Engineering, Sweet Manufacturing, Good Ridge, Schoenfeld, Western Metal Company, and Roseville Precision for their continued support.
