BRENTWOOD, CALIFORNIA (October 24, 2018) – Jeffrey Pahule, Jr. picked up his third Dixon Speedway victory of the year in Saturday’s points finale, finishing out his third place in the 2018 championship points as well. Pahule drives his #44x for Teletech Communications and Motivated Racewear.
Pahule qualified second, missing out on quick time by just .001 seconds to track champion Brandon Riveira. Pahule then started fourth and finished third in his heat race. The Dale’s Guitars Dash was a preview of things to come as he led all six laps to take the .511 second victory that won him a guitar and lessons courtesy of Dale Falkenberg.
Confidence was high heading into the feature and he pulled away to comfortable advantage over Riveira and the rest of the 13 car field. A red flag in the middle stages of the event did not slow Pahule’s momentum at all, as he rocketed away on the following restart. He ran his best lap of the entire day on the 12th lap with a sizzling 10.990. He drove off for a .578 second advantage at the finish line underneath the black and pink checkered flags for Breast Cancer Awareness.
With a third place in Dixon points and sixth place in Delta points in hand, Pahule will return to focus on the post-season special events. This Friday and Saturday is the $1500 to win, $100 to start Turkey Bowl XVII October 26-27 at Delta Speedway. The 6th Annual Lonnie Kaiser Memorial at Dixon Speedway is November 2nd – 3rd.
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, Ryan Timmons, and Bob and Tiffanie Panella.
