Early Race Results from the Bud Light Dash 200 from Plaster City, California.


1st 150 Archibald

3rd 131 Zeller

1st 1622 Boyer
2nd 1607 Robinson
3rd 1619 Mattox

Rob Archibald won overall. Mark McMillin 2nd overall. Andy McMillin out with a blown motor on lap 2 but had a good lead the first two laps. Jessica McMillin had a clean race and a good finish in the pro truck.

The much contested 1600's (listen to the recorded Mexican Radio race relays)Robinson won, Tucker 2nd, Mattox 3rd. 1, 2, and 3 all penalized in 1600. Eugenio for passing into a checkpoint, Tucker and Robinson for short coursing.

25 starters and and I think about 15 finishers in 1600. "Dan McMillin came in for welding on the front end and then broke his front torsions and then rolled He was in my dust about 20 feet from my bumper!"

Reportedly, more than one group of unregistered racers were on the course, they decided to drive around the race course during the race in their prerunners for more than one lap. (Also on Mexican Radio) SEE BELOW

Another report from spare tire racing, "Eugenio finished first but got two 15min penalties and moved back. He was fastest all day. We broke two different new Bosch spark plug wires on lap one and then broke the hub out of the rear trailing arm and lost a cv on lap 2. Lost a few hours welding the hub back in the arm and were last official finishers. Of course getting hit in the left side by a prerunner and flipping the car on the last lap didn't help things any. Finished with ten minutes to spare."

More results: Looney took 1450 with Nicollette Dunn taking 2nd. With the 2nd she took home the 1450-org title for the year. Congrats Nicollette, Craig and Tom for the awesome season. MDR Cal 1450 Champs, MDR Cal Overall Champs and 1450-Org Champs. Cody Agee & Demp threw an alternator belt.
