Grewohl Strings Two In A Row!
Roseville, Ca.- With the Placer County Fair in full swing, a near capacity crowd was on hand to witness Bobby Grewohl in his Bill McAnally Racing #18 Late Model make it two consecutive wins at The All American Speedway, last Saturday night.
Grewohl started sixth and managed to keep the fenders on his car as the rest of the field mixed it up. “I was just trying to be patient the first half of the fifty” he said after the race.
Grewohl took the lead on Lap 56 but his best lap (13.779/ 87.088mph) came later in the race on lap 76. “Bennie’s car (teammate Bennie Moon) was good at the start and we battled pretty closely for a while. It seemed as the race went on, our car really came to us! I really want to thank Bill McAnally for this opportunity and my sponsors AT&T Yellowpages.com, Berco Redwood, and Trico Welding.”
Moon who led 28 of the 100 laps, credited his teammate “Bobby drove a great race. He raced me cleanly the whole way. His team really has some momentum going right now! Our car was really loose at the end, I was just trying to hang on and get the best finish we could.” he said in a post race interview. That finish saw three BMR cars in the top ten.
At the checkers behind Bobby Grewohl, the top ten were as follows:
2nd Bennie Moon
3rd Shannon Mansch
4th Eric Schmidt
5th Paul Harraka
6th Jim Courage Jr.
7th Harold Rieker Jr.
8th Kyle Gottula
9th Justin Philpot
10th Chuck Glick
In Late Model qualifying, Eric Schmidt of Golden State Racing nailed fast time (13.628/ 88.053mph), Paul Harraka was second (13.710/ 87.526mph), and 2006 Westcar Champ Shannon Mansch was third (13.719/ 87.469mph).
Look for the Late Models when they return next Saturday night, June 30th for The Berco Redwood Late Model Twin 50’s!
In the AT&T Yellowpages.com 75 for the Modifieds…
Jay Williams of AT&T Yellow Pages .com waved the green flag on 75 Laps of Modifed short track action Saturday night at The All American Speedway.
With an invert of ten, Scot Alves of Camino started from the pole and was strong early. Derrick Doering took the lead on Lap 15 and looked tough to beat. Richard Poppert Jr. had one of his best runs of the season. He led just one lap (30) but was a top five car all night.
When the track cleared and the dust settled, Scott Winters, in his Ferrari Farms #24, was your winner. Winters, the definition of patience, said after the race “I’ve got to give credit to my crew! They give me a great car week after week. Thanks to my Crew Chief Ron Ostorero and my sponsors Transmissions by HAL, Just Signs, and Wen Tek. Big thanks to Wayne Ferrari of Ferrari Farms.

Then it was Mickey Owens’ turn to challenge Lambert. They battled door to door for eleven laps when Owens slipped by to lead lap 28. It was short-lived though as Lambert took it right back on lap 29.

In Enduro action…
As part of The Placer County Fair, race fans enjoyed racing on Sunday afternoon as well with a 200 Lap Enduro race. Enduro racing is done with Bomber-like cars on a soaked down race track saturated with the soapiest, sudsiest substance available. Drivers are told at the very last second to go 100 laps in one direction. Upon completion, there is a short break and the track is then soaped down once again and the drivers go 100 laps in the other direction.
David Pabst Jr. battled Joe Addison early on in this Battle Royale. Ben Lewis II took the lead on Lap 27 and drove away from the field to win the first 100. Lewis’ car was the only one on the lead lap in the first half.
As the race restarted for the second 100 laps, Lewis II was dominate again. That was until Pabst Jr. got back on the lead lap. The crowd went wild! When trouble struck the #22 of Lewis II on Lap 138, Pabst Jr. was in the right place at the right time to take the lead. With his closest competitor 9 laps back, it was survival of the fittest to the finish line for Pabst Jr. His car completed all 200 laps first to win $1000.00 for an evening’s work.
2nd Joe Addison
3rd John Burns
4th Eugene Guinn
5th Chit Wood
6th Scott Schrum
7th Sean Coker
8th Timber Cookson
9th Mark Heer
10th Brian Compton
The next 200 Lap Enduro race at The All American Speedway is scheduled for October 6th. The Enduro race will be followed by a Boat Race.
This Saturday night at The All American Speedway, it’s The Berco Redwood Late Model Twin 50’s, and we’ll go 50 Laps with the Modifieds and the Bombers!
