Up and Down Night For Stornetta At Petaluma Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA- Competing aboard both the Joe Stornetta Racing No. 6 non wing machine as well as the Lathrop No. 9n winged entry on Saturday night at the Petaluma Speedway, Joe Stornetta had an up and down night.

“It was a tough night with our wingless car, and in the winged car we chased it all night, and still have a little work to do with it,” Joe Stornetta said.

Timing his JPS Trucking/Geide Family/OK Tire Store No. 6 machine in second fastest in qualifying time trials, Stornetta would line up in the second row of his heat race.

Jumping into the third spot in the first corner of the race, another car would slow in front of Stornetta, and with nowhere to go Stornetta would get into him. As his machine came back on all four wheels, a car behind Stornetta would make contact to the rear-end of Stornetta’s machine and the damage would end Stornetta’s night early in the non-wing program.

Timing the Lathrop No. 9n machine in 10th fastest on Saturday night, the Napa, CA driver would finish seventh in heat race action, putting him in the fifth row of the 25-lap feature event.

Getting his machine more comfortable for the feature event, Stornetta would pick up a few positions during the race and end his night with a seventh place finish.

“It was tough to get wrecked early in the wingless program because we have bee pretty good as of late, but we will look forward to Stockton on Saturday night,” Stornetta said. “I’ve got to the Lathrop family for allowing me driver for them again. It was an improvement from our first night together a couple weeks back, and I am confident we will continue to make gains.”

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 look for his third Wingless Series Presented by Hunt Magentos feature event win this Saturday night at the Stockton Dirt Track.
