Tony Gualda Third at Placerville Speedway



PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to weekly points action at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Tony Gualda and the C&M Motorsports team had another great night ‘on the hill’, as they came away with a third place finish.


“It was a good night,” Gualda said. “We timed in with quick time, maintained in the heat race, and had a good start to the feature. We got to the lead and got into a little trouble in traffic and ended up slipping back to finish third. Thanks to Cody, Mandi, MF and all the great people who support this team.”


Earning quick time honors aboard the Moorfield Construction, Inc./Hollister Auto Parts/Dassel’s Petroleum backed No. 7c, Gualda would simply transfer through his heat race with a third place finish and make his way into the redraw.


Pulling the three, the Hollister, CA driver would take the green flag from the second row. After a false start and then a big wreck, Gualda would jump out to the early lead as he battled early with Shane Hopkins.


Using the low groove, Gualda would look strong out front as he quickly reached the back of the field and began the lapping process. With his pace slowed in traffic, Sean Becker was able to close in on Gualda as he used the cushion with Gualda working the bottom.


Bobbing and weaving through traffic, Becker would guess right and it would drop Gualda back to second, though he would close in on the leader as he fought through traffic.


Unable to get back by, Gualda would then see Shane Golobic get by as the three cars fought hard in traffic. A very entertaining race would draw to a conclusion with Gualda recording his eighth Top-Five finish of the year with C&M Motorsports as he ended the night with a third place finish.


“We got to battling in traffic, and I guessed wrong and Becker guessed right,” Gualda said. “We got back to him and he took the line away and then Golobic got by me. It was the first of three straight at Placerville Speedway so hopefully we can get one of these in the next two weeks.”


The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Moorefield Construction, Inc., Hollister Auto Parts, Dassel’s Petroleum, PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.


ON TAP:Gualda and C&M Motorsports are geared up for a return to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.
