Bischofberger Gets First PCS Victory In Stockton Thriller



STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA (May 21, 2017) - Tracy's Jeff Bischofberger became the third first-time winner in three 2017 Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com races, claiming the first Tri-Holiday race of the year at Stockton 99 Speedway. Saturday night's 100 lap contest came down to a 10 lap shootout between Bischofberger and Jason Romero with four career series wins.

Romero took over the lead from 2012 and 2016 PCS champion Jeremy Doss of Upperlake, CA on lap 62 when Doss slowed with a broken third link. Doss also set fast time with a blistering 13.140 second lap earlier in Sunoco Fuels Fast Time qualifying.

A five car battle for fourth boiled over down the backstretch when Shasta winner Derek Copeland was bounced out of the battle and spun to a stop. That caution appeared to set up what would be a great battle between Romero and 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore, who was searching for his first career PCS win as well.

Two attempts at a restart were unsuccessful, with officials electing to move Romero and Moore back a row to set a new front row of Bischofberger and early race leader Ross Strmiska of Manteca.

Bischofberger quickly charged ahead of Strmiska into turn one of the restart with Romero following into second position. Romero dove inside Bischofberger several times including a big maneuver coming to the white flag in turn four that did not net the lead position. Romero gave it one more shot in turn four coming to the checkered flag, eventually sliding and bouncing off of Bischofberger. Bischofberger drove through to take the checkered flag first with Moore snaking through for second while Romero crossed the line sideways in third. Romero ended up against the turn one wall after the wild slide with 2014 PCS champion Mike Beeler of Modesto fourth and 2015 PCS champion John Moore rounding out the top-five.

Strmiska jumped out to the race's early lead with Beeler a focal point for much of the early battling when he got pinned outside. Moore moved inside Strmiska for the lead on lap 20 and cleared him on the following lap. Doss wasted little time chasing down Moore when he overtook Strmiska on lap 26 for second.

A lap 27 caution allowed Romero to get around Beeler for third. Bischofberger was the next driver to get on the move as he was up to fourth by lap 37. Romero's run to the front continued when he took over second place from Moore on lap 47.

Romero clawed at Doss before a caution when Matt Wendt and Strmiska made contact that resulted in Wendt stopping in turn four on lap 59. Wendt was able to return after repairs. Doss' days at the lead appeared numbered as Romero looked inside several times before finally getting the move done right as Doss faltered and stopped in turn two with mechanical problems to cause a lap 61 caution.

Cole Moore won the American Racer Tire Dash for a set of tires and the pole for the feature. Hayward's Danny Malfatti drove to seventh to win the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger for his best career Stockton finish. Wendt overcame the early incident with Strmiska for his second consecutive sixth place finish.

The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will continue on June 17th at All American Speedway in Roseville, CA.

Pacific Challenge Series Racing To Stockton For Strmiska Memorial



Via PCS Media/Blakesley Sports Media

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (June 28, 2016) - The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will have one of its most coveted races of the year with Saturday's Ron Strmiska Memorial / Firecracker 100 at Stockton 99 Speedway. The $4000 to win race will also serve as the second round of the Tri-Holiday Series and is paired with a $2000 to win, 60 lap Stockton Late Model race along with Grand American Modifieds, Bombers, and Mini Cups. It all makes up for a big night at the 68 year-old quarter-mile bullring with fireworks capping off the festivities.

Ron Strmiska, Sr. was known as the Manteca Missile and also known for his distinctive pink #90 race cars. He won both the 1978 and 1979 Late Model Sportsman track championships and the success transferred to his son Ron, Jr. and grandson Ross as well. Ross Strmiska will be one of many valley drivers competing against the touring stars of the PCS.

2014 PCS champion Mike Beeler of Modesto is one of those local drivers aiming for success at Stockton. Beeler is winless in 2016 through the first six races of the PCS but has plenty of history at 99.

"Stockton's a special place," Beeler said. "A lot of racers have come through that track. It was really neat for me to start racing there 15 years ago. As a youngster I used to go up and watch Ron Sr. Really enjoyed hanging out with them and their family."

Valley Springs' Tracy Bolin earned his first career PCS win at Shasta and would enjoy nothing more than to get his second win at Stockton.

"It's my home track and you always get a lot of action there. So it's always a fun race," Bolin. "It would mean a lot to get one there."

We're going to have a lot of fans. The Firecracker 100 is always a popular race," Beeler said. "The stands will be full...excitement will be high. It will be hot, tempers will fly, and it'll be a lot of fun!"

Tracy's Jeff Bischofberger won his first career Super Late Model race when he won the SRL Southwest Tour race at Stockton last year. He hopes to add a PCS victory to the mantle on Saturday.

"I like Stockton a lot. It's kinda my hometown since I went to high school in Stockton," Bischofberger said. "I like the concept of the track and the way its laid out. Its a lot of good fun racing!"

Manteca's Jacob Gomes has four career PCS starts at Stockton including a win last season. He won the 2015 SRL championship and the 2016 PCS event at Madera in a busy 18 months for the young driver. Roseville's Eric Schmidt, himself a former Stockton track champ, topped Gomes for the win on Memorial Day weekend at Stockton.

Upperlake's Jeremy Doss leads the PCS points standings with a win at Ukiah, three runner-up finishes, and a third place effort in the May race at Stockton. Beeler ranks second in the standings ahead of Doss' teammate Bischofberger with Bolin in fourth. 2015 PCS Rookie of the Year Cole Moore of Granite Bay rounds out the top-five.

Manteca's JR Courage is sixth in the standings followed by Loomis' Chris Scribner in seventh. Lodi's Matthew Wendt won 11 of his final 14 Super Stock starts at Stockton before moving onto PCS. The Super Late Model rookie is up to eighth and ran sixth at Roseville last weekend.

Hayward's Danny Malfatti and 2015 PCS and Stockton Tri-Holiday Champion John Moore round out the top-ten in the points. Elk Grove's Mike Hite, Eagle, ID's Travis Milburn, Modesto's Kyle Gottula, Stockton's Colby Potts, and Roseville's Shannon Mansch are among other drivers expected on Saturday night.

Racing activities get underway Friday night with practice from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. Pit gates open at 3 p.m. 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. General admission tickets are $20 for Adults, $15 for Juniors age 11-15 and Seniors age 60+, and Kids 10 & under are FREE!

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.

Jeremy Doss Earns Fifth Consecutive Ukiah PCS Win



Via PCS Media/Blakesley Sports Media

UKIAH, CALIFORNIA (May 8, 2016) - 2012 Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com champion Jeremy Doss won his 17th career win, and fifth straight at Ukiah, taking Sunday's 75 lap feature at Ukiah Speedway. Doss took over the lead on lap five and never looked back in the non-stop 16 minute feature.

The race was delayed to Mother's Day Sunday after rain washed out Saturday's racing activities. Doss' win also gives him the points lead by two points over his teammate Jeff Bischofberger after three of 13 races have been held in 2016.

The American Racer Tires Dash for a set of tires on Saturday night was canceled due to wet weather and not held, so the starting lineup was set based on an inversion. Sunoco Fuels Fast Time qualifier Mike Beeler pulled a four inversion which put Matthew Wendt and Doss on the front row.

Wendt led the opening four laps with Doss on his rear bumper before Wendt jumped into the turn four wall coming to complete lap four, to end his night early. Wendt escaped to the pits with right front damage and the race stayed green with Doss assuming the lead.

Doss lead by over a second at multiple times throughout the long run before Beeler would continually reel him in as they danced in traffic. Tracy Bolin suffered a broken rear end in Saturday practice and maintained a narrow fourth place run over JR Courage and Chris Scribner throughout the event.

Bischofberger overcame a broken axle in the 10 minute last practice session on Sunday to run third throughout the entire feature.

Upperlake's Jimmy Stillman used the leaders as a pick to overhaul Lakeport's Jeremy Hopkins for seventh past halfway in one of the stronger battles in the race.

Doss started slipping with a loose condition off of turn two and Beeler closed within a car length over the last five laps of the feature. Doss held on for a .483 second win over Beeler, Bischofberger, Bolin, and Courage. Beeler's run from fourth to second made him the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger.

The Pacific Challenge Series continues its 2016 season with the first round of the Tri-Holiday Series at Stockton 99 Speedway on May 28th.

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.

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.

Big Field Ready For PCS Late Model Action At Roseville On Saturday

Via PCS Media/Blakesley Sports Media

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (April 11, 2016) - A large field of drivers will battle for the win at one of the Pacific Challenge Series' home tracks, when the Super Late Models hit All American Speedway in Roseville, CA on Saturday night. The PenneyLawyers.com presented action will feature a 75 lap feature on the one-third mile asphalt oval located on the Placer County Fairgrounds. It is the second race of the 2016 Pacific Challenge Series schedule after Jacob Gomes won the series opener at Madera Speedway in March.

Saturday's race is the first of three points races and four events total for PCS at All American Speedway, and is also located just a few miles east of the Pacific Challenge Series offices that are inside Penney Racing Supply. For many drivers in Saturday's field, the race serves as a home race.

Four-time Late Model champion Eric Schmidt of Roseville headlines the local drivers looking to make a splash. Schmidt is the 2013 PCS champion and 2007 All American Speedway track champion along with SRL and Stockton 99 Speedway championships. Despite this resume, Schmidt is winless in six PCS starts at the speedway.

2015 champion John Moore of nearby Granite Bay, CA was one of the leaders in the expansion of the oval into a progressively banked one-third mile in 2008 and earned his first PCS win at the facility in the coveted October Classic non-points race last fall. His son Cole Moore, the 2015 PCS Rookie of the Year, is still looking for his first series win and ran in the top-five in two of the events held last year.

"If you haven't been there you need to come out because it is a special place. Beautiful spot to spectate!" Moore said. "I had a hand in restoring it with my friend (Bill) McAnally a few years ago and we put a lot of heart in it. It is a special place to both of us."

Roseville's Shannon Mansch won this event one year ago and is looking to bounce back from a hard crash at Madera three weeks ago. Mansch's win last year was her first top-five in five attempts at her home speedway so she looks to use that momentum for another strong finish this year.

The most dominant driver at Roseville for PCS racing has been Jeremy Doss, the 2016 Kulwicki Driver Development Program member and 2012 PCS champion. The 19 year-old has 16 career PCS wins with six of those taking place in his eight All American Speedway starts. Doss finished second in the season opener at Madera and will bring teammate Jeff Bischofberger to Roseville as well.

2014 PCS champion Mike Beeler of Modesto has one series win at Roseville in seven starts. Travis Milburn of Eagle, ID got his first Roseville PCS win in June last year while Modesto's Kyle Gottula won the September round last season. Loomis' Chris Scribner has six attempts at Roseville while JR Courage has four and each is still looking for their first W.

A host of drivers are aiming at their first attempts of the 2016 season on Saturday night, including 2009 track champion Jason Romero of Cameron Park, Stockton 99 Speedway Super Stock champion Matthew Wendt, 2010 Roseville track Rookie of the Year Michelle Nagai, 2015 fifth in points Don Swartz, and Redding's Jason Mitchell.

The top-ten in the Pacific Challenge Series standings following Madera sees Jacob Gomes ahead of Jeremy Doss, Jeff Bischofberger, John Moore, Canada's Darrell Midgley, Chris Scribner, JR Courage, Hayward's Danny Malfatti, Upperlake's Jimmy Stillman, and Cole Moore. Valley Springs' Tracy Bolin broke the Madera track record before failing to finish and credited with 16th place. Elk Grove's Mike Hite was sixth in the 2015 order but dropped out early at Madera as well to finish 18th.

A great night of racing will be presented to the fans with the Legends of the Pacific and Street Stocks joining the card along with the American Racer Tires dash.

Friday action includes a practice session from 3 p.m. until dark. The pit gates will open at 1 p.m. for practice with pricing $40 per person (no car fees). On Saturday grandstands open at 4 p.m. with racing at 6 p.m. Pit passes are $30 for PCS members and $40 for non-members.

Ticket prices are priced $15 for Adults, $7 Seniors 60+ & Juniors 6-15, with Children 5 and under free! All American Speedway offers a family pass for 2 Adults & 3 Juniors is only $35 as well.

Jacob Gomes Takes First Career PCS Victory With Madera Win



From PCS Media/Blakesley Sports Media

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 19, 2016) - Jacob Gomes led 71 laps and pulled away by nearly half a second after a lap 55 restart, to claim his first career Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com victory at Madera Speedway. The victory on Saturday night added to the resume of the 2015 SRL Southwest Tour champion and came over 2012 PCS champion and Kulwicki Driver Development member Jeremy Doss.

Gomes, the Manteca racer, started on the pole position for the Smokey Hanoian 75 after winning the American Racer dash for a set of tires. Ross Strmiska led the opening four laps of the contest before Gomes broke free and never relented despite several mid-race caution periods.

The race also marked the first in series history to be televised for MAVTV.

Strmiska took the lead from the outside pole at the initial green flag and the top-six singled out early while Jeff Bischofberger and 2014 champion Mike Beeler battled for position seven. Beeler cleared Bischofberger on the outside on lap four.

2015 Roseville PCS race winners Kyle Gottula and Shannon Mansch tangled on lap four in turn one for the first stoppage of the event. Both restarted at the rear. Gomes used the restart to rocket past Strmiska as a quick yellow came out for Mike Hite getting sideways in turn four. Gomes completed the lap five pass before the caution came out and he maintained the lead.

Doss started the race sixth and found the outside to his liking to advance to third. The intense battling between Bischofberger and Beeler boiled over with Bischofberger doing a 360 degree maneuver down the front stretch to bring out a lap eight yellow. Hite suffered damage as cars slowed and was done for the evening.

Valley Springs' Tracy Bolin set the new track record with a 14.173 second lap and used the restart to slide past Doss and dive inside Strmiska. Bolin spun to bring out another caution on lap nine. Jimmy Stillman found himself battling with Beeler on the next restart with that battle going south on lap 13 with Stillman spinning. After that series of cautions, Mansch had found herself advancing all the way to fifth position despite the earlier spin.

Mansch staged an exciting battle with 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore before they got together sending Mansch for another spin on lap 20. Bolin dropped out of the top-five on the next restart with an apparent mechanical problem coming out of turn two. The race went green for the next 35 laps with Hodges also suffering mechanical failure and escaping to the pits just past halfway.

Gomes was in cruise control over the lengthy green flag run while Strmiska tried to fend off Doss. Doss finally got the deal done down the inside on the backstretch on lap 51. A caution flew four laps later when Mansch and Chris Scribner were spun around in turn three.

That lap 55 restart set up a wild crash that punctuated the race for many. Gomes picked the outside of Doss but it was the second row where Strmiska washed across the race track into Gottula. Gottula spun and collected several cars including Milburn, Mansch, Cole Moore, and JR Courage. Strmiska, Gottula, Milburn, and Mansch suffered terminal damage to end their evening.

The next restart ended up being the last restart with Gomes motoring away from Doss. Doss faced opposition from his teammate Bischofberger for several laps before Doss drove away. Doss ran some of his best laps of the race in the final laps to close the gap on Gomes but he came up three car lengths short. Gomes took his first Madera touring win of his successful young career over Doss, Bischofberger, John Moore, Darrell Midgley, and Scribner.

The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com takes a break for a few weeks before returning for round two at All American Speedway in Roseville, CA on April 16th.
