Justin Sanders had another dominant performance at the Marysville Raceway where he picked up another win, coming on the heels of a drama filled win at the Ocean Speedway a night before.
“It was quite the weekend,” Sanders said. “My temper got the best of me on Friday night, and I said some things I regret after a bonehead move at the end of the race, and I am truly sorry. Saturday night we had an awesome car and it was great to end our weekend on a high note.”
Returning to the Marysville Raceway on Saturday night for more point racing, Sanders would time his F&W Racing No. 18 machine in fourth fastest during qualifying time trials.
From his second row starting position, Sanders would work his way into the second spot, where he would finish, and earn a spot in the redraw as the five pill put him in the third row for the 25-lap showdown.
Slowly working his way into the second spot, Sanders went to work on the race leader, Mike Monahan. Taking his time with Monahan, Sanders would get the lead on the 15th lap, and run away and hide from the field.
Sanders would extend his lead lap after lap, and would take the win by over an eight second advantage.
“We had an awesome racecar as we have had nearly every night at Marysville this year, and it is fun to drive,” Sanders added.
Friday night at the Ocean Speedway, Sanders would get his Justin Sanders Racing machine qualified fourth fastest.
Starting and finishing third in his heat race, the Watsonville, CA driver would advance from his fourth starting spot in the dash, to finish in the second spot, which put him on the front row for the 30-lap feature event.
Jumping out to an early lead with the waiving of the green flag, Sanders looked like he would have the car to beat as he was strong out front. On the 13th lap, Sanders would bobble in turn two, and second running Shane Golobic would take advantage of his miscue, and Sander would run in the second spot as he stalked the race leader.
Continuing to run in the second spot, Sanders was all over the leader as they raced in lapped traffic as the race came to a close. With the white flag in the air, Sanders would go after Golobic as they entered turn one. With contact between to two ensuing, Sanders would stand on the throttle to keep his machine under power, and was able to keep it on all four wheels and drive from the scene, as he went on to pick up the win after a green-white-checkered finish.
“I made some stupid post race comments, and I apologize to the Golobic family, as well as car owner, Keith Day and their team,” Sanders added. “I don’t have the budget to get in a crash competition.”
ON TAP: Sanders will be at the Ocean Speedway on Friday night as well as the Marysville Raceway on Saturday night.
