Tony Gomes, Dan Jinkerson, Nick Baldwin and Ben Wiesz claim Mark Forni Classic wins at Placerville S


Placerville, CA...Congrats to our winners at the 17th annual Mark Forni Classic this past Saturday. Modesto's Tony Gomes with the Thompson's Winged Sprint Cars, Diamond Springs' Dan Jinkerson with the Mountain Democrat Ltd. Late Models, Oakley's Nick Baldwin with the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks and Colfax racer Ben Wiesz with the Dwarf Cars.

The $5,000 score for Gomes was the first of his career at Placerville Speedway after being oh so close on several occasions in the past. Jinkerson continued his domination of the Ltd. Late Model division this year with his fifth overall triumph of 2022 at the track on Saturday.

Baldwin likewise continues to dominate the point chase with the Pure Stocks after adding his fourth win of the season at the Mark Forni Classic. Wiesz also continued his impressive campaign on the red clay by making it four-for-four in the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car appearances at Placerville this season. A full pit area of 90 race cars helped honor the late Mark Forni for the 17th time on Saturday. The Placerville Speedway returns to action with Coors Light Big Trophy Night on Saturday August 6th.
