INDIANAPOLIS (Jun. 12, 2018) – With Faccinto’s regular midget team taking the weekend off, last minute he found himself once again behind the wheel of the No.19 Chris Thornhill owned, CS9 Chassis, 600cc micro. In front of a hometown crowd, the Lemoore, California native, picked up a pair of wins at Plaza Park Raceway Friday night, and Lemoore Raceway Saturday night.
“Friday night was a lot of fun driving through the field,” commented Faccinto. “Plaza Park did a great job with the race track, and that allowed for good racing. We made minimal, minor changes all night to the new CS9 Chassis, and it worked great.”
After setting quick time in qualifying at Plaza Park, the night seemed like it would be smooth sailing, but a parts failure during the heat race would land Faccinto starting 11th in the feature event. Working his way through the field, the micro veteran took the lead on lap 15, and captured the win over Ben Worth and Drake Galante.
Saturday night proved to be one of those evenings drivers dream about: Quick time in qualifications, winning the heat race, drawing the pole position, and ending up in victory lane at the end of the night. That’s exactly what Faccinto did at Lemoore Raceway, picking up win number two over the weekend.
“Saturday night, everything went our way,” explained Faccinto. “We drew the pole position for the main event, and pretty much checked out. I can’t thank Chris Thornhill enough for allowing me to drive the car. I’m glad I could get them a couple wins as a thank you.”
Faccinto will be back in the midget ranks this weekend as the USAC Western States Midgets visit Bakersfield Speedway.
Michael Faccinto would like to thank the following sponsors: Bell Helmets, Factory Kahne Shocks, Always Safe Pools, Barry Pries Jr.
