NCMA’s competed on June 16th at the Tom Manning Memorial at the Stockton 99 Speedway. It was an all open wheel weekend event with Sprint Cars, Midgets and vintage classes. The Central Valley, CA weather cooperated nicely and it was a good night of racing. Andy Gleason was out in his new #91J sprint car and for the first time with NCMA. It’s been a couple decades since Andy has driven and he hadn’t lost his touch. He went out for a couple practices and was second quick in Qualifying.
The night unfolded with some real good racing and wheel to wheel action and in the heat race it was a photo finish between #88 Denny Burrell and #17H Rob Hammond. The trophy dash was also quite exiting with Denny getting into Rob’s left rear on the last corner and the last lap but Rob was able to hold on for the win. In the feature, all cars stayed close and after all was said and done the finishing order was: 1. #88 Denny Burrell; 2. #17H Rob Hammond; 3. #77B David Burchett; 4. #91J Andy Gleason.
On July 6th the Sprint Cars are headed to Lakeport Speedway for some Friday night racing and then the next night will make he 35 mile trip to Ukiah Speedway for a double header weekend. NCMA really enjoys going to Lakeport and Ukiah where the track personnel and the fans are great to us. We hope you can make the trip to watch some great racing and we look forward to putting on a show for the fans. For more details go to www.ukiahspeedway.com.
