STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA (August 19, 2018) – Duplicating a feat accomplished on August 4th by Tyler Smith, Stockton’s Caden Sarale swept both the Non Wing and Super 600 features on Saturday night at Delta Speedway. Sarale’s wins each paid $500 courtesy of Financial Center Credit Union for a $1000 evening for the 2015 Restricted track champion.
Both features during round #10 at the 1/7th mile dirt oval ended with one lap runs to the finish as well.
Sarale led from the drop of the green flag in the Non Wing main event while Tyler Smith worked on coming through the field after having to advance from the B Main. A caution on lap seven saw Jacob Williams stopped in turn three and Smith had advanced to tenth by that stage of the race.
Summer Sizzler winner Dan Mognaga of Valley Springs tried to use the bottom to challenge for second place while Sarale pulled away to a substantial lead before encountering lapped traffic at halfway. A red flag flew on lap 23 for Chad Laughton crashing while battling in lapped traffic. Smith drove into the top-five when the race resumed.
Sarale and second place Mitchel Moles looked comfortably ahead of the field when the caution flew as they were aiming for the finish line. The caution set up a green and white flag together but Sarale got the job done as he scored the victory over Moles, James Ringo, 16th starting Tyler Smith, and Mognaga.
Sean Watts made his return to Delta Speedway and led the 16 car Super 600 field to green. Caden Sarale started second and on lap 12 nabbed the lead from Watts. Nikko Panella and Raio Salmon – the top-two in points – battled for third before later closing down on Watts for second. On lap 23 Panella made his way past Watts for second before a red flag for Mike Rich with a blown engine. Sarale built up a 1.9 second advantage over Panella before once again he saw a caution flag fly while he was on the final lap.
Sarale had a solid final lap to get the 30 lap victory while Watts took over second from Nikko Panella. Salmon and Alex Panella rounded out the top-five.
Non Wing points leader Tyler Smith was not the only surprise driver in the B Mains as Dylan Bloomfield had to start Restricted from 17th after running in the B.
Outside pole sitter Brody Petrie of Napa led the feature through a caution-free opening 15 laps. The caution-free running ended when a busy battle between Caeden Steele, Caden Stoll, and Jeffrey Pahule ended with both Stoll and Pahule spinning. Stoll continued on but Pahule was done for the evening.
Steele took over the lead on the restart with Gauge Garcia moving into second place. A caution on lap 20 set up a restart where Steele was penalized two positions for jumping the restart cone. The penalty thrust Garcia into the lead. Garcia and Steele staged an exciting battle down to the wire for the Restricted win, with Garcia taking a narrow .090 second win at the checkered flag. Garcia won his first Delta Restricted event over Steele, Logan Trevino, Petrie, and Stoll.
Austin Wood won his first Delta Jr. Sprints event of 2018 after four runner-up finishes to start the year. Wood led the field to green and led the first six laps before the first caution period. Caleb Debem used the restart to get second place away from points leader Dalton Parreira. Parreira wrestled the position back over a series of restarts around the halfway mark of the 20 lap contest. Lapped traffic near the finish closed the gap somewhat but Wood was strong enough for the victory over Parreira, Debem, Colton Key, and TK O’Brien.
Delta Speedway’s championship battles will be the focus of the upcoming Dual at Delta, September 1st and 2nd. Each night’s racing will be a complete program with full points and purses awarded on Labor Day Weekend.
