PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to racing action in California after taking part in Speedweek Northwest back in mid July, Lucas Ashe checked into Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night and picked up a 10th place finish.
“My track record at Chico has been pretty brutal lately, so I am pretty happy to finish with a Top-10,” Ashe said. “I had the chance to work with Kyle Hirst on Friday night and he was great and helped me out a ton.”
Ashe kicked Friday night off by timing the Jester Auto Museum and Event Center/SALCO Inc./Lucas Oil backed No. 33 machine in 14th fastest in time trials, which would then line him up in the fourth row of his heat race.
Finishing sixth in heat race action, Ashe would move into the 25-lap feature event where he would take the green flag from the 15th starting position. On a track that has been unkind to him the last couple of seasons, Ashe would be patient in what was a fast paced feature event.
Working his way forward, Ashe would creep towards the Top-10 as laps clicked off ever so quickly. Getting into 10th late in the race, Ashe would look to make a bid for more on a late restart, but would think better of it and accept the checkered flag with a 10th place finish.
“I think Kyle and the guys gave me a great racecar, and I just didn’t trust it enough,” Ashe said. “With how Chico has gone for me, I am pretty happy to finish and be inside the Top-10. Thanks again to Kyle Hirst for spending the night with us, it was a ton of fun.”
Lucas Ashe Racing would like to thank Jester Auto Museum and Event Center, SALCO Inc., Lucas Oil, STL Tile, Crown Motors, Logo USA, Triple X Race Co., DMI Components, VSR, Factory QRC, Shaver Racing Engines, Rod End Supply, Fat Cat Propane, and Justeson Farms for their continued support.
