Stornetta Third at Petaluma Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to action at the Petaluma Speedway after winning the Silver Cup back in March, Joe Stornetta continued to show speed as he picked up a third place finish in a hard fought feature event.

“Overall it went well on Saturday night, obviously it would have been nice to win, but the track was super racy, and we were pretty good,” Stornetta said.

Timing in third fastest, Stornetta would have starter issues in heat race action, and would ultimately line the JPS Trucking/Geide Family/OK Tire Store entry at the back of the pack. Keeping his composure, Stornetta would race his way into the fourth position, and transfer directly into the night’s feature event.

Lining up third in the feature event, Stornetta wasted no time working his way into the second spot, as he chased after early race leader, Shane Myhre. Stalking Myhre’s every move in the opening stages of the event, Stornetta looked to make a move on the 10th lap, but it did not work out, and he slipped back to fourth as Terry Schank and Klint Simpson got by him.

Regrouping, Stornetta would battle with Schank as he would grab the third spot, only to have Schank return the favor a lap later. Late in the race, a restart saw the race leader drift high, and Stornetta was able to move into the third spot as he continued to chase Simpson, and Schank, but could not get around the duo, and settled for the podium finish.

“It was a fun race to be a part of, and I hope the fans enjoyed it,” he added. “I have to thank everyone who helps with our car, and our sponsors for continuing to support us. It’s been a nice start to our season, and hopefully we can keep it going.”

Joe Stornetta would like to thank JPS Trucking, The Geide Family, OK Tire Store, iWear Motorsports, Parmeter General Engineering Service, X Winery, Bergin Glass, LJ’s Speed & Machine Shop, Rick Lawley Trucking, Black Hawk Body Shop, and The Holman Family for their support.

ON TAP: Stornetta will be in action on Sunday night at the Calistoga Speedway.
