PETERSEN MEDIA: With an extended break in the King of the West schedule currently taking place, Sean Watts and his Watts Rolfe Speed-Sports team made a rare appearance at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA and finished in the 10th spot.
“Our night got started off okay, but in the feature event I got off to a slow start,” Watts said. “I got going okay towards the end of the race and we managed to finish 10th.”
Timing the Grizzly Coolers/Schaeffer Racing Oil/Rolfe Construction backed No. 98 entry in seventh fastest in qualifying time trials, Watts would find himself on the front row of his heat race.
Lined up alongside Bud Kaeding, Watts would finish in the second position and earn a berth in the nightly redraw.
Pulling the five pill, Watts would take the green flag from the third for the 25-lap “A” main event. On a tacky surface, Watts would struggle to get going as he car would appear to be on the tight side.
Losing a few positions, Watts would search around the lighting quick ¼ mile looking find a groove that would work for him. Changing lines, Watts would settle into position as he ran inside the Top-10.
Battling with Kalib Henry and Chas Majdic in the final laps, Watts would end up Friday night with a 10th place finish.
“We needed to be better at the start of the race, and that really hurt us,” Watts noted. “With the track was you could not afford to give up positions like we did so it is just something for us to work on.”
Sean and the Watts Rolfe Speed-Sports team would like to thank Grizzly Coolers, Schaeffer Racing Oil, Rolfe Construction, Billet American, Kaeding Performance, Shannon Pumps, Stealth Homes, Tee’s and Tops, Team Simpson, Kistler Racing Engines, and Stan Yockey Motorsports for their continued support.
ON TAP: Watts will be out of the sprint car for a few weeks as the King of the West Series will now be off until August 26th at Petaluma Speedway.
