Furia Posts First North State Modified Series Top 10

Via Furia Racing PR

Lakeport, CA - The North State Modified Series made their way to Ukiah Speedway this past weekend and Furia seemed pretty content with taking on this track as it is her hometown track. Ukiah is one of the tracks that 19-year old Sierra Furia has been racing on for over 4 years and has had many wins there. Friday night practice started off with good thoughts for Furia and her team. “It was great to roll out of the trailer and be fast. We have been fighting major bad luck since the beginning of the season and I believe we are moving forward, fast.” explained Furia.

Saturday approached and Furia still felt content with the race. “We had been getting faster and faster all day. It did pay off in the long run as we qualified 10th out of the 22 cars that showed up.” said Furia. After a good qualifying run, that set Furia to start 10th in the main. Furia managed to work her way up to 8th, with strong battles between Sullivan and Furia. “It felt good to be able to run in the top 10 with this series and have some strong battles. I believe we could have been better but the car got tight and we started to fall back” explained Furia.

This was Furia’s first top 10 finish with the North State Modified Series and will not be her last. “We have ran three races with this series, and have not had good luck. It has been tough to get the car right even at the home tracks. We will be coming back for more and will continue to get better every weekend. I can not thank my parents for the support throughout this. My crew chief Noel McCormick for pushing me and everyone at the shop who gets me out here every week” said Furia. You can catch her at Redwood Acres Raceway in Eureka, CA on July 23rd.

Sierra would like to thank her sponsors Schaeffer’s Racing Oil, Furia Construction, OGIO, Bob and Carol, S&K Automotive, and Sand N Dirt Motorsports.
