Andy Gleason wins 2019 season opener at Shasta Speedway


NCMA drivers, owners and teams made the trip to Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA for the Mothers Day weekend.  After a long winter off teams were ready to get back to the track and shake their cars down.  The weather was great and the track set for some good racing.  In the heat race Rob Hammond led the field to the green.  He and David Burchett had a side by side battle for all 8 laps with Burchett coming out on top.  In the trophy Dash, Andy Gleason was on the pole and never looked back and took the win.   In the main event, David Burchett brought the sprinters to the line but Andy Gleason, driving NCMA Hall of Fame member, Ed Amadors stinger chassis #76, in his second year wasn’t to be denied as he drove around Burchett on the outside of turns 1 & 2 and took the lead.  This was Andy’s first win with NCMA and a special one for him at his home track.  NCMA hasn’t raced at Shasta Speedway for years and it didn’t disappoint.  The track and track personnel as well as the fans were great.  NCMA hasn’t run at Shasta for years and we look forward to going back.
