PETERSEN MEDIA- Tuning up for this weekend’s Nor-Cal Posse Shootout, Tony Gualda and C&M Motorsports checked in at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night for the regular season finale and came home with a fourth place finish.
“We had a really fast car and I felt like we got stronger as the race went on,” Tony Gualda said. “I thought we had a shot at a podium, but we ran out of time. Extremely pleased with everything and really excited about the big two-day show this weekend.”
With 25 cars checked in for the final points paying event of the season at Placerville Speedway, Hollister, CA driver Tony Gualda timed the Moorefield Construction, Inc./Hollister Auto Parts/PitStopUSA backed No. 7c mount in second quickest in qualifying time trials.
Gridding the field from the second row in heat race competition, Gualda would make some nice moves on the racy bullring as he carved his way to finish second and transfer directly into the 25-lap feature event.
Qualifying for the redraw, the seven pill put the young gasser in the fourth row on the starting grid, but he would not be back there for long. Jumping into the fifth spot, it would start to become challenging to make up positions as the low line was the dominant line as the top simply got to be too far around to make up any ground.
Remaining patient, Gualda would make a couple of nice moves in the closing laps as he worked into fourth and began pressuring fellow youngster, Kyle Offill. With stoppages keeping the leaders out of traffic late, Gualda would give it his all to get on the podium, but on this night he would take the checkered flag in the fourth position.
“Cody, Mandi, and everyone on this team works so hard and we have a great car night in and night out,” Gualda noted. “We have a big weekend coming up with two nights at Placerville and I would love nothing more than to get Cody and Mandi back in victory lane.”
The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Moorefield Construction, Inc., Hollister Auto Parts, PitStopUSA, PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.
ON TAP: Gualda and C&M Motorsports are will be in action on Friday and Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.
