Shane Golobic captures night one of the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout




Shane Golobic and Jake Morgan claim wins at Nor*Cal Posse Shootout opener in Placerville


By Gary Thomas


Placerville, CA…Until last week Shane Golobic had surprisingly gone over two months since visiting victory lane. With summer winding down the Fremont driver has turned up the heat however, by racing to his second consecutive Placerville Speedway victory during the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout opener on Saturday.


Sharing the stage with Golobic on night one of the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout presented by High Sierra Industries was Fair Oaks’ Jake Morgan with the Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour. Both drivers took home extra money in the feature courtesy of Absolute Auto Glass. A total of 70 cars filled the pit area to open the double header on Labor Day weekend.


In the 30-lap Winged Sprint Car feature it was Hanford’s Michael Faccinto who took command early on and held a steady lead out front. The driver of the F&F Racing x1 looked stout until getting hiked up on the cushion at one point in turn four. Five-time Placerville winner this year Justin Sanders then blasted into the lead around the halfway point, as excellent racing was seen all through the field.


Golobic was progressively making his way forward from the eighth starting spot and looked to the inside of Sanders on lap 20 but came up just short. The next time by Golobic drove to the inside once again, contact ensued, and resulted in Sanders getting upside down off the fourth corner. The two-time Trophy Cup champ led the remaining distance to grab his 12th career Winged 360 win at the track, tying Andy Gregg, Scooter Lambert and Stephen Allard.


Colby Copeland continued to show that he’s one of the best at navigating the red clay with a charge from 12th to second in the feature. Tanner Carrick came home in third, with 10th starter Colby Johnson and 13th starting Tony Gomes rounding out the top-five. Faccinto, Gauge Garcia, Ryan Robinson, 22nd starting Justyn Cox and 24th starter Shane Hopkins completed the top-10.


Tanner Carrick opened the night by earning the ADCO Driveline/ Sierra Foothill Wine Services fast time award in the 36-car field.
