PETERSEN MEDIA- In his 25th year of racing, Greg DeCaires is not showing any signs of slowing down as the Elk Grove, CA raced his way to his second win of the 2015 season, marking his fifth consecutive podium finish, on Saturday night at the Placerville Speedway.
“We had a great handling car,” DeCaires said. “The track was slick, and Dale Miller and Bill McClaren made some gutsy calls, and it worked out very well for us.”
With 19 cars on hand at the famed ¼ mile bullring, DeCaires timed his Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic/Foothill 7 TV/RedHawk Casino backed No. 4sa entry in third quickest in qualifying time trials.
Lining up in the second row of his heat race, DeCaires would finish in the third spot, moving into the night’s redraw, where the one pill would put him on the pole for the 25-lap feature event.
As the green flag waived, DeCaires quickly jumped out to the lead, as he quickly broke away from the field. On an extremely slick surface, DeCaires used his veteran savvy to tip-toe around the high banked ¼ mile speedway, as he continued to lead lap by lap.
A late caution bunched the field back up, but that did not slow DeCaires, as he was able to pull away from his challengers, and race his way to his second win of the young season at the Placerville Speedway.
“We definitely had the starting position advantage,” DeCaires added. “It was tough to pass out there on Saturday night, so that pill draw helped us out a ton. Again, I just have to thank everyone who is involved on this team for their hard work week after week.”
Greg DeCaires and the Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic, Foothill 7 TV, RedHawk Casino, Halk Equipment Rentals, NAAKE Suspension, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Frank’s Auto Body Shop, Hangtown Sheet Metal and Wesmar Racing Engines for their support.
