BRENTWOOD, CALIFORNIA (SEPTEMBER 17, 2018) – Jeffrey Pahule, Jr. continued his 2018 season at Delta Speedway on Saturday night, driving his #44x Pace Chassis sponsored by Teletech Communications and Motivated Racewear to an 11th place finish. Just one points race remains at Delta with Pahule solidly sixth in the Restricted 600cc Micro Sprint points standings.
Pahule qualified 16th out of the 27 competitors on hand but benefited greatly from the track electing to a four heat race format. The format placed him on the pole for heat race #4 which he dominated for victory ahead of his points rival Brody Petrie.
He rolled off 13th for the 25 lap feature and battled hard just outside the top ten for the early going. A spin through the infield on lap nine forced Pahule to restart in 15th. He went upstairs to move forward and advanced to 12th by lap 15. He took over the 11th position on lap 18, continuing to pick up pace all the way to the finish when he ran his best lap of the feature on the 25th lap.
With the 11th place finish, Pahule enjoys a 14 point advantage over Petrie for 6th in the Delta Speedway championship. Delta’s points races conclude on October 6th before the Turkey Bowl XVIII hits the track on October 26-27.
Next up for Jeffrey will be the Mark Hagopian Memorial on Friday and Saturday night at Keller Auto Raceway at Plaza Park. Teletech Communications is proud to be sponsoring the Restricted feature on Saturday night that pays $750 to win.
Jeffrey Pahule wants to thank: Mom, Dad, Teletech Communications, NorCal Builders, Shawn Laeber with Motion Media Wraps, Russ Seros with Seros Racing Engines, Austin Stone, Salmon Motorsports, Bob and Tiffany Panella, and last but certainly not least Ryan Timmons for working so hard to always make sure the car is ready to hit the track!
