Tony Gualda Third at Placerville Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA- Putting a tough 4th of July weekend of racing behind him, Tony Gualda and the C&M Motorsports team were in action on Saturday night where the Hollister, CA driver would pick up a podium finish as he was third at the line.

“We had a tough 4th of July Weekend, but this team continues to stick with me, and help me get better and I am happy to get them a good finish,” Tony Gualda said.

Checking in at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Gualda got the night underway by timing the PT Shocks/PitStopUSA/Moorefield Construction, Inc. backed No. 7C machine in third quickest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Gualda, would make some nice moves as he was able to work forward on an unusually hooked up surface at Placerville Speedway.

Racing his way up to second, Gualda would earn a spot in the redraw where the six pill placed the 51 Fifty Energy Drink/Swatz Diesel/Pacific Highway Rentals entry in the third row of the 25-lap affair.

With the surface tough to figure out, Gualda showed patience as he navigated around the tricky surface. Able to avoid a couple of incidents that nearly collected him, Gualda looked good in the lead pack.

When the checkered flag waived on a wild finish to the feature, Gualda would come to the start finish line in the third position.

“We had way too many DNF’s last weekend, so it is really nice to get a top-three for this team,” Gualda added. “I want to thank Cody and Mandi for continuing to support me, and Darrin for working so hard on this car.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank PitStopUSA, Autism Awareness, Pacific Highway Rentals, Moorefield Construction, Inc., PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, 51 Fifty Energy Drink, Alturas Tires, and Velocity Race Gear and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.
