20 Cars made the trip to the Central Coast to participate in the inaugural even at Santa Maria Raceway. The weather for over 30 degrees cooler than the valley which made this a win win. A great crowd was on hand to watch Visalia’s Blake Robertson take the win after starting in the 11th position. But the story of this race was watching pole sitter Vaughn Schott race his way through the field after being involved in an early race caution. The 67 crew changed the damaged wheel and tire and watched their driver work from the back to an impressive 3rd place finish.
