SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (August 8, 2017) – Another talented field of Pacific Challenge Series Super Late Models will be in action on Saturday night, as drivers take to the one-third mile Madera Speedway for the seventh round of the 2017 series. The PenneyLawyers.com sponsored action will be a 75 lap contest with drivers from several different disciplines coming together for the big race.
The PCS has not had a repeat winner in 2017 and has seen five of the six races go to first time winners. The trend began with the season opener in March at Madera. Carlos Vieira’s win was not only in his first PCS start but made for his first touring stock car victory of his popular career. His win was followed by first-time wins for Derek Copeland, Jeff Bischofberger, and Cole Moore, before Cole’s father John won at Stockton on July 1st. Randy Hedrick was yet another first time winner when he scored a late race win at Ukiah two weeks ago.
2015 champion John Moore leads 2014 champion Mike Beeler of Modesto by 10 points entering Madera. 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore trails John by 30 points in a close three-way duel for the lead.
A host of drivers will try to knock the points contenders off of their pedestal in search of the race win on Saturday. Not only will Vieira defend his March win, he will have to contend with the likes of 2016 Madera PCS winner Jacob Gomes as well.
