PETERSEN MEDIA: Following the King of the West Series to Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night, Sean Watts would put together a nice night that saw him pick up a heat race win and score a ninth place finish in the feature event.
“It was another step in the right direction for our race team,” Watts said. “We ended up on the front row of our heat race and we were able to pick up the win and move into the Dash.”
22 cars checked into the Bay Area facility, and Watts got his night kicked off by timing the Grizzly Coolers/Schaeffer Racing Oil/Rolfe Construction machine in 11th fastest in qualifying time trials.
Lining up on the front row of his heat race alongside Andy Forsberg, Watts would get the jump as he would be on the preferred low groove as things came to life. Fending off Forsberg, Watts would pick up the important win and stamp his ticket into the nine-car Dash that would set the first five rows of the feature event.
With the zero pill being pulled for the Dash inversion, Watts would start ninth in the sixth-lap affair, and finish ninth putting him in the ninth starting spot for the 30-lap finale.
Watts would get off to a bit of a slow start on the unusually slicked off racing surface. Falling back as far as the 13th spot in the opening six laps, Watts would regroup as the race got into an extended 21-lap green flag run.
Working his way back forward in some tricky traffic, Watts would pick up lost position in the closing laps as he got back up to the ninth spot.
“It was odd to see Petaluma so slick and take some rubber at the end of the race,” Watts added. “I think we made the right changes after the Dash, and despite losing some spots early we were able to pick them up and get another Top-10.”
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 back in action with the King of the West Series on Friday night in Watsonville, CA and on Saturday night in Calistoga, CA.
