PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night in Placerville, CA, Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports returned to action as Sanders fought through the field to record a sixth place finish when all was said and done.
“We went out early for time trials and the track got faster as the session went on,” Sanders said. “I didn’t capitalize on our front row starting spot in the heat race and it put us further back in the feature than we would have liked to have started.”
Timing the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic Inc. backed No. 4SA machine in 12thfastest in time trials, Sanders would find himself on the front row of his heat race alongside Justyn Cox.
An entertaining opening lap saw the duo battle for the top spot, but Cox would get the best of Sanders and he would slip into second and hang on to finish there. Good enough to transfer directly into the feature, Sanders would find himself in the 12thstarting position for the 25-lap feature event.
When the race came to life, Sanders would pick up a couple of positions to break into the Top-10. Not really able to put together a big charge through the field, Sanders would take spots as he could as he fought for a spot inside the Top-5.
Stuck on the outside looking in, Sanders brought his Saturday night to a close with a sixth place finish.
“We ended up okay with a sixth place result, but we were just a little off and I have to take the blame,” Sanders said. “I had a couple of last minute ideas set up wise, and they just didn’t work out had I had hoped they would. Thanks to Dale and Tara and everyone that helps us out.”
The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic, Inc., North County Plastering, Anrak Corporation, Yuba-Sutter Aviation, Frank’s Body Shop, Wion’s Powder Coating, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Smith Titanium, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, A.R.T.
