Nelson Impresses With Third Chowchilla Victory

Leading from the start of the race, Turlock’s Bruce Nelson won his third 20 lap Hobby Stock Main Event of the season Sunday afternoon at Chowchilla Speedway.  The two time Merced Speedway champion withstood a late race challenge from 2015 track champion Kevin Joaquin to score the impressive victory.  Joaquin had third place finisher Syd Finn of Atwater right on his bumper at the checkered flag as Madera’s Robbie Loquaci and Quinton Harris of Watsonville rounded out the Top 5 finishers.

Nelson picked up a nice trophy earlier in the afternoon for his four lap Trophy Dash victory.  Finn won a heat race, and Watsonville Sport Mod champion Matt Hagio of Salinas won his heat race.  Unfortunately for Hagio, he broke something and loaded up before the feature.

Chris Corder of Modesto had a dominating performance in the Mini Stock division.  The 2015 track champion took the lead from Merced’s James Stockton on the second lap and went on to win the 10 lap Main Event by a straightaway.  Stockton was a solid second as Mike Germait of Merced held off Natalie Waldrop of Antioch in a good battle for third.  Corder swept the action with wins in the six lap heat race and four lap Trophy Dash.

Tracy’s Mike Corsaro won an ear;ly duel with David Rosa of Antioch in the 15 lap Dwarf Car Main Event before winning the race by a straightaway.  This was Corsaro’s fourth win of the year on the circuit.  Rosa held second until spinning in Turn 2 on the final lap.  That handed second to 77 year old Charlie Correia of Tracy as Antioch’s David Michael Rosa finished third.

Racing continues on Sunday, November 15th at Chowchilla Speedway with Hobby Stocks, Dwarf Cars and Mini Stocks all back in action to close the 2015 season. Chowchilla Speedway is located at the Chowchilla Fairgrounds.  Racing starts at 2:00 PM.
