SALMON IS SUPER ON NIGHT ONE OF THE DUAL AT DELTA

STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA (September 1, 2019) – 2018 Super 600 runner-up Raio Salmon’s $500 victory highlighted the Saturday night portion of the Dual at Delta in Stockton. Four divisions of Micro Sprint action at the Delta Speedway presented by Financial Center Credit Union opened the annual Labor Day weekend race. Racing continues Sunday with another complete night of points racing as well.

Salmon’s victory gives her two on the year to go with the points opener win. She qualified sixth then finished second in her heat race. The 30 lap feature saw Salmon line up on the pole in her black and pink #21 and lead wire-to-wire for the win. Fast-time qualifier Mitchel Moles ran second ahead of 2014 champion Travis Labat, points leader Caden Sarale of Stockton from ninth on the grid, and Cody Christensen. The victory also moves Salmon back ahead of Nikko Panella for fourth in the championship standings.

Moles’ big night included his third $500 Non-Wing feature win of the season to give his six total at the speedway in 2019. His Super 600 runner-up was his seventh second place finish across the two multi classes at the 1/7th mile dirt oval. Moles qualified third and started third for the Non-Wing main event after a 0 invert. Former track champions Tj Smith and Brandon Carey tangled on the second lap of the feature. Moles assumed the lead afterwards and never relinquished it, topping Austin Stone by 1.971 seconds with Chris Hinkle of Lodi finishing a strong third. Points leader Caden Sarale was fourth ahead of Brandon Shaw.

Restricted points leader Logan Trevino of Madera added some cushion to his advantage over Jade Avedisian, winning his third event of the year worth $300. Trevino had been locked out of victory lane since April 20th and had seen the Restricted contenders close in on him all summer long. The $300 win came from sixth on the starting grid with the decisive pass on lap 17. Oregon’s Ashton Torgerson, who recently assumed the Dixon point lead, finished second while rookie standout Dalton Parriera was third. Jeffrey Pahule, Jr. and Avedisian rounded out the top-five.

Jr. Sprint points leader Lucas Mauldin has been on a roll in 2019 and Saturday’s $200 victory from the pole is his sixth of the year. He has four wins and one second place finish over the last five events. Visalia’s Jett Barnes has four points wins plus the WoO special in March, adding three runner-up finishes as well after following Mauldin across the line. Cash Lovenburg, second in points Kyle Fernandez, and Colton Key were the balance of the top-five in the feature rundown.

Pit gates open at 1 p.m. on Sunday with the drivers meeting at 4:30 p.m. Hot laps begin shortly after with qualifying and racing to follow. Pit passes are just $20 with no membership required. Racers and race fans are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy some great Royce Farms BBQ at the races.

Delta’s youngest race fans are invited to join the action all weekend long with special activities planned. All kids ages 12 and under receive free general admission. With the kids back in school, the speedway will reward them with a great weekend of special giveaways and prizes just for them!
