Steven Tiner Second at Placerville Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA: One week removed from a frustrating night at Placerville Speedway, Steven Tiner would return to the high banked, red dirt facility where he would earn a second place finish.

“We were pretty good all night long on Saturday night, just quite weren’t good enough to pick up the win,” Tiner said.

Timing his Larry Davis Farms/Wright Process Systems/Deli Delicious backed No. 94 machine in sixth fastest in qualifying time trials, the Visalia, CA driver would go on to pick up the win during heat race action and earn a spot in the nightly redraw.

Pulling the four pill, Tiner would line up in the second row for the feature event behind a front row made up of Justyn Cox and Greg DeCaires. Getting into third when the action came to life, Tiner would begin to pressure Greg DeCaires for the runner-up spot.

The battle would seemingly last all race long, and would intensify in the latter stages of the race. Exchanging the second spot on a few occasions, Tiner would finally get the position for good, as he then set his sights on Cox. Cox would slide over the cushion in front of Tiner and would allow Tiner to make things interesting in the final laps.

Unable to make a pass, Tiner would close his night with a much needed second place finish.

“It has been a rough start to our season, so to come back to Placerville and run second is a nice shot in the arm for us,” Tiner said. “Hopefully we can keep this rolling into Petaluma.”

Friday night Tiner and his STR team were also in action as they took on the Sprint Car Challenge Tour at Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway. Timing in fourth fastest in qualifying group, the Visalia, CA wheelman would line up on the pole of his heat race and proceed to finish in the second spot and move into the pole shuffle.

Finishing fourth in the shuffle, Tiner would line up in the second row for the 35-lap ‘A’ Main event.

On the extremely slick surface most of the field would chose the bottom of the track when the action picked up, but Tiner stayed true to the highside and looked strong up top in the first 11-laps of the race before the first caution flew.

Sitting in the fourth spot after a couple of early battles with Jason Meyers, things would get interesting when the action picked back up as drivers began getting off the bottom groove and searching around the speedway. As the track continued to slick off, Tiner would slowly lose positions as he slipped back and finished in the 17th spot.

“It’s hard to say you were good on a night you finish 17th, but I wasn’t too made at how we did,” Tiner said. “I felt good up top in the first 11laps, but I think we sealed a tire up during that first caution and spent the next 25 laps spinning our tire all the way around the track and unable to make grip.”

Steven and his Steven Tiner Racing team would like to thank Larry Davis Farms, Wright Process Systems, Deli Delicious, Fisher Racing Engines, Powder Coat-It, SRP, Wilwood, FSR, XYZ Machine, DMI, Dan Olson Race Products, HRP, Kevin Sharrah Designs, Prior Engineering, B&B Racing Engines, ART, System One Pro Ignition, Sweet Manufacturing, Schoenfeld, and Roseville Precision for their continued support.
