(PETERSEN MEDIA- Watsonville, CA)- Friday night in Watsonville, CA, it was local favorite, Justin Sanders, parking the potent No. 121 machine in victory lane at the Ocean Speedway as he wired the field for his first win at the speedway in 2017 with the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo.
Leading the field to green by way of his Dash win, Sanders would set the early pace over Shane Golobic, Kyler Shaw, Geoff Ensign, and Kurt Nelson, until the caution flew on the race’s fourth lap.
The race’s ensuing restart would see Dustin Golobic have troubles in his Golobic Brothers Racing No. 57 entry, as he would come to a stop in turns one and two and take his machine pit side for the rest of the night.
Back underway, Sanders would continue to lead the way up front as Ensign was able to get by Shaw to take the third spot as Golobic continued to run second and in Sanders’ wake.
As the surface continue to slick off lap after lap, the action would pick up through the field as drivers jockeyed for position on the racy ¼ mile. With Sanders getting to the tail end of the field by the ninth lap, Golobic would erase some of his lead only to the see the caution fly on the 11th circuit.
Getting open track, Sanders would get a great restart as he got away from Golobic, Ensign, and Shaw who continued to run inside the Top-Five.
The top-three would break away from the rest of the top-five, but the action would pick up four fourth, as Colton Slack tossed his hat into mix and began battling with Shaw and Nelson for the spot.
Up front, Sanders would again find himself in traffic as Golobic was able to take a shot on the inside of Sanders, but it wouldn’t stick and Sanders continued to lead the way with Ensign running in third.
On the 19th lap the torrid battle for fourth would come to a head as Nelson and Slack would get together and both would get upside down.
Just as he had done all night, Sanders executed a flawless restart as he was able to go on and pick up his first win of the season at the track, over Shane Golobic and Geoff Ensign.
“We had a new car out here, and it really got rolling nicely,” Justin Sanders said. “The track was slick to a curb, and it was a lot of fun maneuvering in traffic, and parking this 121 in victory lane.”
Jeremy Chisum finished fourth, Kyler Shaw fifth, Brad Furr overcame sickness all day to finish sixth, Koen Shaw seventh, Kyle Offill was eighth in his Ocean Speedway debut, Danny Malfaitti finished ninth, and Josh Chisum rounded out the Top-10.
Friday night saw 20-cars check into Ocean Speedway and it was Justin Sanders leading the way in time trials with an 11.975 second lap.
