Wild West IMCA mod shootout wins / update
Travis Peery and Alex Stanford took part in the Wild West IMCA mod shootout that spanned from Northern CA well up into Oregon June 12th through 20th. Despite a number of bad breaks throughout the week, Stanford and Peery both were able to pick-up wins. Travis Peery picked up the win in Yreka, CA at Siskiyou Speedway in only his second night behind the wheel of his new PCD Race Car. Travis Started outside pole of the main event and led it wire to wire, taking the checkers after navigating through heavy lapped traffic late in the race.
Alex Stanford later in the week picked up a nail biter of a win at Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, OR. After starting mid-pack, Stanford made his way to the front and stalked the leader for a number of laps. Stanford would make several good runs at the leader throughout the closing laps, but the leader would continue to block Stanford out of the preferred groove. On the white flag lap, Stanford would commit to the non-preferred groove and edge his way to a 0.013 second margin of victory in his PCD Race car over Ryan Gaylord.
Stanford finished second in overall points for the week, Peery finished third in overall points. They amassed a number of top 5’s and hard-charger honors to go along with the wins. Stanford had a commanding lead in Banks, OR until a late race incident with a lapped car would take him out of the event. All in all, the PCD boys did great in Oregon.
Rick Diaz picked up another sportmod win in Merced, CA from a 13th starting position on June 13th. Diaz would handily work his way to the front and cruise to a victory over the rest of the field.
Tom Sweatman has also continued his dominance at Gray’s Harbor Raceway in Elma, WA. He’s won two more races since the last update as well as grabbing another 2nd place finish. This puts Tom at 4 wins, 2 seconds, and one 4th place finish at Gray’s Harbor this season since joining the PCD Team.
In the shop, Randy Brown’s new 2015 PCD just came off the jig and has made it’s way to the powdercoaters. We’re looking forward to getting Randy into victory lane in the near future.
Congrats to all the boys on their continued strong performances!
