AUTO RACING: Erickson wins big, Deegan thrills crowd in Roseville
June 17, 2018
Matt Erickson is going home $5,000 richer after his dramatic win in the Cooks Collision 100 Late Model feature race at All American Speedway Saturday, on a night that marked the return of racing to Roseville.
The evening was capped off by a wild first-ever trailer race that had the packed crowd on their feet as X Games star Brian Deegan took the win, while pocketing $1,000.
Deegan won the trailer race by virtue of being the last driver with a trailer still attached.
John Moore dominated most of the Late Model event, before Erickson of LaGrange slipped by to steal the win. Moore's son, Cole, also got by to take second over his father in third. Sixteen-year-old Kayla Eshleman captured the attention of the crowd as she battled her way to a fourth-place finish, with Logan Zampa taking fifth.
The Jr. Late Models were on display in a 10-lap exhibition race in an event dominated by Eshelman, who was doing double duty.
The Limited Modified feature provided some of the closest and most physical racing of the night, with Corey Englehardt taking the win.
