Stockton 99 Speedway Up Next For Pacific Challenge Series



Via PCS Media/Blakesley Sports Media

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (May 24, 2016) - The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will make their first trip to Stockton 99 Speedway of the season, with round four of the Super Late Model championship on tap Saturday night. Saturday's races are the first of the three round Tri-Holiday Series at Stockton commemorating Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day weekends.

The historic Stockton 99 Speedway quarter-mile is embarking on its 68th season of racing action and is under the tutelage of Tony & Carol Noceti. A full night of racing action is on tap with Legends of the Pacific, the revitalized Stockton Late Models, and Bombers joining the evening's card.

Jeremy Doss scored his PCS-leading 17th career feature win by claiming the Mother's Day race at Ukiah Speedway two weeks ago. The Upperlake, CA driver leads his JD Motorsports teammate Jeff Bischofberger by just two points in the series standings. Doss is hoping to ride the momentum into Stockton where he has three wins but also three finishes outside the top-ten in his PCS career at the facility.

Bischofberger on the other hand scored his first career Super Late Model win at Stockton when he won a SRL Southwest Tour race there last season. Saturday will be Bischofberger's maiden PCS race at the facility.

An average finish of 5.3 has propelled Loomis' Chris Scribner to third in the championship standings. He has only two previous PCS starts at Stockton with one top-ten finish.

2014 series champion Mike Beeler of Modesto is fourth in the current rundown and has had some great success at Stockton. Beeler's Late Model career was focused on the weekly racing at Stockton before he advanced to PCS. Beeler won last year's third round of the Tri-Holiday Series and has a total of five top-tens in six career series starts.

Hayward's Danny Malfatti rounds out the top-five in the standings with three consecutive top-ten finishes to start out the season. Valley Springs' Tracy Bolin returns to his home track from the sixth position in the standings ahead of Upperlake's Jimmy Stillman in seventh. Bolin set the track record at the Madera season opener. His bad luck this year included a broken rear end at Ukiah that his team was able to overcome en route to a season-best fourth place finish.

2015 series champion John Moore of Granite Bay also won the 2015 Tri-Holiday three race championship and sits eighth in the standings after failing to take the green flag at Ukiah. Moore won the July Tri-Holiday event last year. Canadian Darrell Midgley and Manteca's JR Courage round out the top-ten.

Drivers with plenty of local track experience are expected at Stockton including 2015 SRL Southwest Tour champion Jacob Gomes of Manteca. Gomes won the season opener at Madera and also has a win with PCS at Stockton in his record books. Matthew Wendt has shown a lot of speed in his two PCS starts this year and hopes to translate that to success at his home track. The Lodi driver won 11 of his last 14 Super Stock starts over the past two seasons at the speedway.

Mike Hite, Travis Milburn, Kyle Gottula, Justin Philpott, and Larry Tankersley are among other drivers expected to return to PCS action with Saturday's race at Stockton.

Saturday's Legends of the Pacific race is the fourth time so far in 2016 that Legends have raced with the Pacific Challenge Series. Cameron Austin has had the most success with three second place finishes with two wins for Robby Czub and one for Luis Tyrrell.

Racing activities get underway Friday night with practice from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. Pit gates open at 3 p.m. and pricing is $40 per person with no car fee. On Saturday pit gates open at 1 p.m. with first practices at 3:30 p.m. Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with racing scheduled for 6 p.m. Pit passes are $45 on Saturday.

Pacific Challenge Series Ready To Battle In Ukiah



Via PCS Media/Blakesley Sports Media

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (May 3, 2016) - Round three of the Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers is this Saturday night at Ukiah Speedway as drivers continue their battle towards the 2016 championship. Teammates Jeff Bischofberger and all-time winningest PCS driver Jeremy Doss anchor the standings for the touring Super Late Model Series. For Doss, not only is Saturday's race critical for the championship, Ukiah is his home track for the Upperlake, CA driver.

Doss has enjoyed great success at the challenging quarter-mile bullring at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds, scoring four wins and a perfect record of six-for-six top-fives. Doss has won his last four starts at the facility dating back to his October 2012 win that propelled him to the PCS championship.

"Ukiah Speedway means a lot. That's kind of where it all started there. I started there in Legends cars. All around it is a great facility! You get a lot of fans and there's always great racing with the Pacific Challenge Series," Doss said. "I've always had great success there and looking forward to coming back. To have success in front of your home fans means a lot. The last couple times we've been there we picked up the win so we're hoping to do that again."

Bischofberger leads Doss by two points on the strength of back-to-back third place finishes to open up the PCS season. Running third in the championship is Loomis' Chris Scribner with runs of sixth and fourth this year. Scribner and Doss are the only two active points contenders with career victories at Ukiah.

2015 series champion John Moore of Granite Bay, CA is fourth in the standings and finished in the top-five in all three Ukiah starts last year. Canadian Darrell Midgley rounds out the top-five. Hayward's Danny Malfatti has scored top-tens in both 2016 PCS races to rank sixth with 2014 champion Mike Beeler seventh. Beeler is one of the more accomplished PCS drivers in Ukiah history with five starts, three top-fives, and five top-tens. Eighth in PCS points is 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore with Tracy Bolin staring down his Ukiah debut from ninth in the standings.

The most active Ukiah driver out of current PCS drivers is Jimmy Stillman. Using the combined PCS and Airport Auto Brokers Late Model history books Stillman has accumulated 13 starts with eight top-tens and a second place effort in 2009. Stillman rounds out the top-ten in PCS standings.

Mike Hite and Travis Milburn have both made the first two PCS races but find themselves mired in 13th and 14th in the standings hoping to use Ukiah as a comeback race. JR Courage missed the Roseville round but is expected at Ukiah while Matthew Wendt had a successful debut at Roseville he hopes to ride into Ukiah. Todd Lands of Cloverdale has two career AABLM/PCS Ukiah starts and aims to return to action on Saturday.

Saturday's races for the Pacific Challenge Series at Ukiah are also the season opener for Ukiah, with local track Bandoleros, Bombers, Mini Stocks, and Legends scheduled. It marks the third of as many as eight times Legends will race with PCS this year.

Friday action includes a practice session from 3 p.m. until dark. The pit gates will open at noon for practice with pricing $30 per person (no car fees). On Saturday pit gates open at 10 a.m. and grandstands open at 3:30 p.m. Qualifying will be at 5 p.m. with racing to follow.

Ticket prices are priced $12 for Adults, $9 for Seniors and Students, $6 for Children 6-11, and Children 5 and under free! Ukiah Speedway also offers a family pack for $30.

Jason Romero Thrills Roseville Crowd With First PCS Win



Via PCS Media/Blakesley Sports Media

ROSEVILLE, CALIFORNIA (April 16, 2016) - 2009 All American Speedway Late Model champion debuted a new car for Saturday's Pacific Challenge Series 100 at the one-third mile oval and promptly won the feature, in a crowd pleasing duel to 2014 PCS champion Mike Beeler. Saturday's nights races presented by PenneyLawyers.com served as round two for the touring Super Late Model championship series.

Mike Beeler won the $500 Dash for Cash after some nice outside moves against Loomis' Chris Scribner, with the dash finish setting the lineup for the main event. The battling between the two continued on a red-hot race track with five drivers breaking the track record in qualifying.

Eric Schmidt of Roseville, CA is both a PCS and All American Speedway champion and used the outside to get around Romero at the start to take third.

The top nine cars ran nose to tail until encountering lapped traffic, when Schmidt bounced off the lapped car of Dave Skaggs and into the infield. Schmidt collected 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore. Schmidt was able to restart from the rear of the field while Moore lost nearly 20 laps making repairs.

Beeler won a cat and mouse restart with Scribner while Jeremy Doss battled hard with Romero for the third position. Doss hung in tight with Romero despite a persistent right front tire rub throughout the battle.

Jason Mitchell and Jimmy Stillman tangled with both black and red 39 cars making contact in turn four the next caution. Romero stumbled on the restart and fell back to the eighth position with Matthew Wendt in his series' points race debut also falling backwards from the top-five. Doss got around Scribner but Scribner was able to take the position back on lap 44 to maintain second.

2015 PCS champion John Moore remained in the top-five throughout the first half of the race until his brake rotors began glowing and he started to slip from the lead pack. Romero spent nearly five laps dueling with Moore before overtaking him for fourth on lap 51 and Jeff Bischofberger followed on lap 52.

Mike Hite spun across the infield grass for a lap 54 caution and Wendt spun for another caution on the ensuing restart. Things again settled down and stayed green allowing Romero to swoop past Doss on the outside for the third position. The intensity picked up as Romero then used an inside manuever to take second and start to reel in race long leader Mike Beeler.

Wendt retired to the pits on lap 66 and the final caution of the night fell on lap 71 when Don Swartz and Hite got together in turn four with Hite spinning to a stop.

That caution set up a duel for the ages between Mike Beeler and Jason Romero with Romero hounding Beeler throughout lapped traffic for the extended green flag run. With ten laps to go, Romero truly had Beeler in his grasp and five laps later Romero completed the pass for the lead to the roar of the approval for the track champion.

Romero cruised home for the victory while Beeler had to settle for second with Bischofberger and Scribner both managing to get past Doss before the finish. Canadian Darrell Midgley came from 13th on the grid to finish sixth for the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger ahead of John Moore, Tracy Bolin, Ryan Peeples of Anderson, CA with a strong top-ten, and Hayward's Danny Malfatti with his second straight PCS top-ten.

JD Motorsports teammates Jeff Bischofberger and Jeremy Doss lead the series points with the next round taking place May 7th for its first of three appearances at Ukiah Speedway in Ukiah, CA.
