Wiesz still runs up front

Colfax’s Colby Wiesz continued to race among the Northern California leaders in last week’s 360 Pacific Sprints Fall Nationals at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico.

On Saturday night, Wiesz finished second in the A feature, ahead of Grass Valley’s Mark Hall (10th) and Billy Wallace (14th).

Also on Saturday, Grass Valley’s Jeremy Burt took fourth place in both the C and D feature events, while Pat Harvey Jr., also of Grass Valley, finished 15th in the D feature.

Wiesz, who just wrapped up second place in the California Sprint Car Civil War Series last month, had another top driving performance just 24 hours earlier. Wiesz walked away with first place in Friday night’s preliminary A feature, while Hall took ninth place.

In Friday’s B feature, Burt finished in sixth place

Thursday’s preliminary A feature saw Wallace finish in ninth place, while Grass Valley’s Brad Sweet took 23rd place after finishing third in his heat race. Harvey Jr. finished sixth in the B feature.

Still ahead this weekend is the Wingless Sprints Nationals at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico.

On Friday and Saturday, pits open at 2 p.m., gates at 5 p.m. and qualifying begins at 6:30 p.m. Adult tickets are $15 on Friday and $20 on Saturday. Tickets for juniors are $10, and $4 for children, on both nights.
