Willie Croft 4th at Santa Maria; Knoxville On Tap


PETERSEN MEDIA- Amidst a string of podium finishes with the King of the West Series, Willie Croft put together another good run at Santa Maria Speedway as he worked his way forward to finish fourth as he now readies for the Knoxville 360 and 410 Nationals.

“Things really have been clicking for us as of late, and it is happening at the perfect time,” Willie Croft said.

Though he didn’t get timed in like he had hoped on Saturday night, Croft was still able to time the Holey Smokes BBQ/ButlerBuilt/Brown and Miller backed No. 29 machine in fifth quickest in time trials.

Running third in his heat race, Croft would miss out on a berth into the Dash, and found himself taking the green flag from the eighth starting position. Using the start and restarts to his advantage, Croft would get going forward in the feature event, as he found himself in the Top-Five chasing after the likes of Chase Johnson, Dominic Scelzi, and Bud Kaeding.

Moving into fourth, Croft would show that he had a good car, he just quite didn’t have enough to get up and battle for another podium finish. When the race drew to a close, Croft would hang on for another Top-Five finish as he brought his entry home in fourth.

“Thanks to my guys for working hard, and working hard after the races to get us ready to head back to Knoxville, IA,’ Croft said. “This is a trip my family and I enjoy, and hopefully we can put a good run together for all of our partners.”
