Tough Go at Cotton Classic For DJ Netto


PETERSEN MEDIA: Competing at the Kings Speedway for one final time in 2015, DJ Netto had hopes of claiming his first ever Penny Newman Grain Cotton Classic, but an opening lap incident would dash those hopes as he was forced to the back of the pack.

‘We seemed to struggle to find speed, and then on the opening lap of the feature some contact brought us to a stop and we were relegated to the back of the pack,” Netto said.

Timing the Netto Ag/Penny Newman Grain/Bogies Auto Parts No. 88n machine in 13th fastest in qualifying time trials, Netto would finish fifth in his heat race and find himself in the 11th starting spot for the 30-lap Penny Newman Grain Cotton Classic A Main event.

Coming to the green flag of the feature event, contact would get Netto’s machine out of shape and he would do everything but flip down the front straightaway, but the caution would fly and he would be relegated to the back of the pack.

With the track staying extremely hooked up on Saturday night, passing was at a premium making things even more difficult for Netto to rebound. Though he would try everything he could go to get moving forward, Netto would only be able to pick up a few spots as he would finish in the 14th spot.

“It was a strange night of racing, but I think we would have had a Top-10 car if we didn’t have to go to the back, but it was out of our control,” Netto said. “My guys continue to do a great job, and we are continuing to build each week as we get closer to the off season.”

DJ and his Netto Racing team would like to thank Netto Agriculture, Penny Newman Grain, Bogies Auto Parts, Kaeding Performance, and Vande Pol Enterprises for their support in 2015.

ON TAP: Netto and his team will take this week off before they return to action on November 7th at the Stockton Dirt Track for the King of the West finale.

2015 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-56, Wins-3, Top 5’s-10, Top 10’s-17
