[Special from Lance Jennings]
Charging from sixth, fast qualifier Ryan Timmons (Pleasant Hill, CA) topped the non-point USAC West Coast Sprint Car debut at Placerville Speedway. Racing the family owned #29T Timmons Auto Truck & Repair / Evergood Fine Foods CS9, Timmons took advantage of a “Wild” Billy Aton bobble to lead the final twelve laps of the “Prospector Pandemonium.” Ryan earned his third career series win over Jake Morgan, Aton, Kaleb Montgomery, and Oregon’s Rob Lindsey.
Earlier in the night, Timmons was the Woodland Auto Display Fast Qualifier and set a new track record with a time of 12.243 over the 12-car roster. The former rookie of the year placed fifth in his heat race and claimed the Rod End Supply Hard Charger Award / Best Passing Job honors.
The 10-lap heat race victories were claimed by Lindsey (Extreme Mufflers / Competition Suspension Incorporated First Heat), and Tanner Boul (Sway-A-Way Torsion Bars / Ultra Shield Race Products Second Heat). Lindsey qualified ninth overall while Boul was tenth quick and finished sixth in the main event.
Next Saturday, October 17th, the traditional 360 sprint cars will invade Petaluma Speedway for a special non-points event. The USAC Western States and BCRA Midgets will join the action-packed card that will be broadcast live at floracing.com.
