PETERSEN MEDIA- Fresh off of a Silver Dollar Speedway Top-Five, Jason Stater and his DF Rios Motorsports team made a return trip to the speedway on Friday night and picked up a second place finish.
“My guys gave me a great car all night long, and I was pleased with our second place finish,” Jason Statler explained.
Lining up on the front row for the feature event alongside Carson Macedo, Statler would lose the drag race into turn one, and that would prove pivotal as the track was exceptionally fast on this night.
Chasing after Macedo, passing would be tough on this night as cars got strung out and clicked off lightening fast laps. Continuing to turn in very strong lap times, Statler would hang on to his position and tally a second place finish as the checkered flag flew on the event.
“It stayed pretty fast all night, so we did what we could do, and hoped for a mistake which didn’t happen,” Statler said. “It is two very good races for us in a row and now we will look to see what we can do this weekend at the Johnny Key Classic in Watsonville, CA.”
Statler would kick his night off by timing the DF Rios Motorsports/Amerikote/Riley Collins Auto Body No. 00 machine in third quickest in time trials, before picking a third place finish during his heat race.
Jason Statler would like to thank DF Rios Motorsports, Amerikote, Riley Collins Auto Body, SCI, Kaeding Performance, Kistler Racing Engines, Simpson Race Products, Yak Graphics, Factory Kahne Shocks, Ultra Shield, Rod End Supply, Santomauro, Stephanie’s Custom Interior, and Nevada City Auto Service for their continued support.
ON TAP: Statler and his team will bolt their 360ci power plant into the frame rails of his No. 00 machine and head to the Ocean Speedway for the 55th Annual Johnny Key Classic on Saturday night.
2014 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-23, Wins-0, Top-5’s-6, Top-10’s-11
