INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 28, 2017) – Hanford, California native Michael Faccinto scored his third win of the season over the weekend. The MF Motorsports/CP-Carrillo sponsored SPIKE/Chevy was the car to beat at the Stockton Dirt Track during BCRA Midget competition.
Faccinto kicked off the night setting Quick Time in qualifying. He would go on to win his heat race from the 6th starting spot, and with an 8 car invert for the feature, Faccinto would start on the outside of row number four. By lap five, Faccinto had worked his way to the front and taken over the lead. He hit his marks perfectly to seal the win over second-place Scott Pierovich, and third-place Alex Schutte.
“Using this race as a test for Calistoga next week couldn’t have gone any better,” explained Faccinto. “Mike Sala built me one heck of a motor, and we were able to sweep the night. Myself and the whole team are really looking forward to going to Calistoga.”
Faccinto, who previously won the midget portion in 2016, is eager to repeat. He stole the lead last year from Tanner Thorson, who had dominated much of the race, with three laps to go. Faccinto took the checkers over Brady Bacon, who snagged second place from Thorson on the bottom, putting the Keith Kunz entry third.
“We’re really excited to get back to Calistoga,” said Faccinto. “Winning the Louie last year was awesome. Hopefully we can have the same success and go back-to-back. That would be pretty cool.”
Michael Faccinto and MF Motorsports would like to thank the following sponsors: Kasiner Farms, Keizer Wheels, CP-Carrillo, Lucas Oil, OZV Winery, Old Soul, Keizer Wheels, Sala Racing, SPIKE Chassis, and FK Shocks – Indy.
