INDIANAPOLIS (Jul. 5, 2017) – Ryan Bernal was victorious Monday night at Petaluma Speedway, scoring his first winged sprint car victory of the season in the Mike Phulps No.56.

“It was a big win for our team,” said Bernal. “The car was spot on all night. I have a new crew chief, Ryan Riley, and help from Jake Argo who works at CSI Shocks. Jake really helped us get dialed in at Stockton, where we finished third, and it carried over to tonight at Petaluma.”

Bernal set quick time in qualifying and transferred through his heat race into the trophy dash. Winning the dash put Bernal on the pole of the feature. Cory Eliason led several laps before a flat tire would send him to the work area. Bernal inherited the lead with less than ten laps remaining and go on to win his seventh race of the 2017 season.

“I want to thank Mike, Kerry, Ryan, and Larry for working hard the last few days,” expressed Bernal. “Everything has paid off so far, we just have to keep up the momentum.”

Bernal heads back to the Midwest for USAC’s Indiana Sprint Week July 8th-15th, where he will pilot the Michael Dutcher Motorsports No.17GP. His most recent finish in the MDM machine was an 18th to 2nd place finish at Lincoln Park Speedway earlier in the week.
