Langenderfer, Martin, Webster Are Orland Raceway Winners
Orland, CA...July 14...Jeremy Langenderfer kept the pressure on in the Pure Stock championship battle with the 20 lap Pure Stock Main Event win Saturday night at Orland Raceway. This was his fourth win of the season. Despite having won three races prior to the night, he still found himself trailing Paul Stevens by 19 points going into the evening. The race had an eventful first 10 laps. Nick Vidovich lost a tire while running in second on the opening lap. Ben Matlock led the early laps with Stevens in pursuit. On lap six, two-time champion Steve Martin made the move underneath Matlock in Turn 2 for the lead. Stephens followed closely into second. The caution flag flew on lap nine, and Martin's run up front came to an end as his car died in Turn 2. Stevens suddenly had the lead over rival Langenderfer. However, Langenderfer kept his foot to the floor and made his move to bring home his fourth win of the season.
BJ Martin scored his first 600 Micro feature win since opening day. Martin has won multiple championships in various 4 Cylinder classes at the track. He led this race from the outset with Jessica McManus and Rowdy McLennon in pursuit all the way to the checkered flag. He gained some points on leader Jake Fernandez, who ended up fifth at the finish.
Dan Webster scored his second Mini Truck 20 lap Main Event win of the season. The 2016 champion started in the back with incoming point leader Keith Ross as William Fogle charged into the lead. Webster made his move into second by lap five and attempted an inside pass in Turn 3, only to make contact with a tractor tire for a yellow flag. However, Webster found his way back to the front and would gain the lead. Justin Vance and Ross kept it close down the stretch as they finished second and third, respectively.
Jackie Whitson returned and won the 250 Micro Sprint Main Event. The night also included a 50/50 raffle fundraiser for the Pasero family. The winner of the drawing decided to donate that money back to the Pesaro family. The entirety of the donation was $382.
Racing returns on July 28th with the second appearance of the B Modified division. Also competing will be the Pure Stocks, Mini Stocks, Mini Trucks and the 250 Micro Sprints. For further information, find the Orland Raceway page on Facebook.
