Tony Gomes Tallies 6th Place Finish at Placerville Speedway  



PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back to the famed bullring in Placerville, CA, Tony Gomes and C&M Motorsports had another solid night on the hill as Gomes scored a sixth place finish.  


“It wasn’t the best night for us, it wasn’t bad by any means, but we all want to finish a few spots better,” Tony Gomes said. “I am really happy that we have a quick turnaround this week and we get to try again on Thursday and then hopefully again on Saturday night.”


With 23 cars on hand for John Padjen Kids Bike Night, Gomes kicked the night off by timing the Lund Construction/Anrak/Sam Rhodes backed No. 7c in fourth quickest in qualifying time trials.


A three-heat program was utilized on Saturday night, and Gomes found himself on the front row of his heat race where he needed to score a win to earn a spot in the redraw.


Getting the jump, the red flag was needed for a rollover, and it turned into an extended stoppage as a medical emergency in the grandstands needed the attention of the EMT’s.


Once the action resumed, Gomes was back on the throttle as he powered to the lead and never looked back. Picking up the win, he earned a spot in the redraw where the six pill put him in the third row of the 25-lap feature.


Moving into fourth after a lap two incident took out a pair of drivers that were running ahead of him, Gomes flirted with taking over the third position but settled into fourth.


Slipping back to fifth, Gomes fell to sixth on a lap 11 restart and then found himself on a battle for the Top-Five as he swapped the spot the next few laps. Losing the battle, Gomes settled into sixth and fell to seventh on the 23rd lap but was right back up into sixth a lap later as he chased after Ashton Torgerson and Austin Wood.


Making a couple late attempts to get into the Top-Five, Gomes capped his night off with a sixth place finish.


“My guys definitely worked hard to give us the best shot in the feature, we were just a little off,” Gomes said. “Big thanks to Cody, John, and Bobby for always working so hard, busting their butts. Also, thanks to Cody and Mandi for their continued support. Excited to get right back up to Placerville on Thursday.”



The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Lund Construction, Anrak, Sam Rhodes, Alturas Tires, Swartz Diesel, Adrian Blanco Jewelry, Kings Meats, American Paving Systems, PT Shocks, Creason Enterprises, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support. 


ON TAP: C&M Motorsports and Tony Gomes will be at Placerville Speedway on July 4th, and then again on the sixth.


BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-7, Wins-0, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-6
