Montgomery became the 52nd winning driver in USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series history. Smith, J.J. Ringo, Timmons, and Trent Carter followed Kaleb to the checkered flags.

Carter earned the night’s Saldana Racing Products Hard Charger Award / Best Passing Job honors with a fifth place run from 12th. Missouri’s Slater Helt claimed the Wilwood Disc Brakes “Lucky 13 Award” with a thirteenth place finish.

Earlier in the program, Guardino posted his fourth career Woodland Auto Display Fast Time Award with a time of 13.894 over the 15-car roster. After mechanical issues resulted in a 10th place finish in the feature, Tristan clinched the series championship.

The night’s 10-lap heat race victories went to Timmons (Extreme Mufflers First Heat) and Helt (Brown & Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat).

By virtue of his third place finish in the main event, Ringo has taken over the rookie point lead from Hannah Mayhew by 20 points. 

Next Saturday, October 12th, the USAC West Coast Sprint Cars will travel to Petaluma Speedway for their final point race of the year at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds.
