PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting right back to work after a strong run at Petaluma Speedway, Lucas Ashe had a self described up and down night at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night as he finished 11th.
“We made some good laps and moved forward, but it was kind of an up and down night for our team,” Lucas Ashe said.
Going out near the end of qualifying time trials, the Cottonwood, CA driver would the SALCO Inc./Lucas Oil/NAAKE Suspension backed No. 33 entry in 20th fastest with 25 cars checked into the track nestled in the foothills.
Finishing fourth during heat race competition, Ashe would line the STL Tile/Crown Motors/Logo USA machine up in the eighth row for the 25-lap ‘Big Trophy Night’ feature event.
With the track narrow in the early laps, Ashe would show patience on the ¼ mile as it slowly began to widen out as the laps clicked off. Making some headway during the course of the race, Ashe would battle for a position inside the Top-10 late in the race.
In the waning laps, Ashe and Steven Tiner would battle for the 10th spot and Ashe would end up settling for 11th in the DMI/Shave Racing Engines/Maxim.
“It’s nice to get back to some of these tracks for a second, and third time and really start to get comfortable,” Ashe added. “My guys do a good job of getting me comfortable everywhere we go, and I think we are getting better each week.”
Lucas Ashe Racing would like to thank SALCO Inc., Lucas Oil, NAAKE Suspension, STL Tile, Crown Motors, Logo USA, DMI Components, Shaver Racing Engines, Maxim, Rod End Supply, Lucky Seven Outlaw Wings, Fat Cat Propane, Pickern Allstate Ins., Jester Auto Museum and Event Center, and Justeson Farms for their continued support.
