|Andreotti Wins $10k at 2018 IBEW NECA Clay Cup Nationals
Everson, WA - Jake Andreotti won one of the richest prizes in micro racing on Saturday night, winning $10,000 at the 2018 IBEW NECA Clay Cup Nationals at Deming Speedway in the 600 Open division. Jared Gundersen, Colby Thornhill and Dalton Parreira joined Andreotti as Clay Cup Champions.
Andreotti etched his name in the record books by showing patience early, as an 11th place starting spot put him behind a fast and talented field of competitors. As Andreotti moved forward on the field, Joey Ancona set a rapid pace, keeping Jared Peterson at bay for multiple runs and through a number of cautions. As the race entered its final stages, Andreotti moved into position two by sliding Peterson in turn three and set his sights on Ancona. A yellow flag right after his pass of Peterson closed the gap to nothing between Ancona and Andreotti and it took five laps for Andreotti to make a low move on Joey in turn two to take the lead for good. Ancona would battle back, but lost his handle on the high side of turn two and flipped on lap 39. Jake would drive away from Peterson on the restart to secure the win, with Peterson taking second for the third straight year and TJ Smith rounding out the podium. Keith Day Jr earned the hard charger award and $700 for advancing 12 spots.
The 1200 division race was a barn burner up front early, as Derek Holmwood led lap number one with Jared Gundersen right on his tail. Gundersen made a slide for the lead on lap two, but it looked like Holmwood would retake the top spot on lap tree before a caution flag flew. With the the field reverting to the last completed lap, Gundersen would restart in the lead, a position he would not give up en route to is second Clay Cup win in the past two years. Jared Peterson put on a show from the back of the field, earning the $700 hard charger award in coming from 21st to second. Holmwood, in only his second main event of the year, earned third.
In 2017, Colby Thornhill became the first driver to repeat as Clay Cup Champion in the 600 Restricted class. In 2018, Thornhill made it three in a row, as he drove around the outside of Lane Taylor for the lead on lap 25 of 30 to take the $3,000 winner’s share of the purse. Taylor led the first 24 laps but would have to settle for second ahead of Caeden Steele in third. Malachi Gemmer was hard charger, picking up ten positions and $700.
In the Junior Sprint class, Dalton Parreira picked up the $1,300 victory by securing the lead from Colton Key on lap 6. Parreira held the lead easily the most of the way to take the win, followed by Levi Hillier in second and Key in third. Keira Zylstra came from the B Main to earn hard charger honors, advancing 8 spots for the $700 prize.
