Willie Croft Dominates Civil War Show at Calistoga Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA- Another busy week of racing action for Willie Croft and the Willie Croft Racing team was highlighted by a dominant win on Saturday night at Calistoga Speedway with the Civil War Series.

“It’s been an extremely busy month of September for us so far and to get another win is great,” Willie Croft said. “My guys have stood behind me and we will keep going and look for another good weekend.”

Doing double duty on Saturday night as he was also in action with the World of Outlaws, Croft kicked the Civil War Series program off by turning in the second fastest lap in qualifying time trials, before racing to a heat race win.

Finishing second in the Dash, Croft would start alongside new series champ, Cole Macedo, for the 20-lap feature event. Once he cleared Macedo in turns one and two, Croft was off to the races.

Simply dominating the feature event, Croft would easily pick up his sixth win of the season as he parked in victory lane at the historic speedway.

During the World of Outlaws portion of the night, Croft would time the Holey Smokes BBQ/ButlerBuilt/Brown and Miller backed machine in 11th fastest in time trials before finishing fourth in his heat race.

Lining up 11th to start the feature event, Croft would find himself in torrid battles with the likes of Ian Madsen and Shane Golobic as the fought to get a spot inside the Top-10. Slipping back a position as the rubber began to go down on the Speedway, Croft would take the checkered flag in 13th, which was a nice way to cap the World of Outlaws swing after being involved in a lap three crash on Friday night, and pulling off at the start of the feature at Placerville Speedway on Wednesday night.

“I was pleased with how the last couple of weeks went with the Outlaws,” Croft said. “There were nights where we were certainly better than we finished and circumstances dictated where we ended up, for sure. It has also been great to pick up a couple of 360 wins with some really big 360 races on the horizon.”
