Terrell Pulls Off A Thriller In Pit Stop USA Sprint Car Series Action

PETALUMA, CA – JUNE 30, 2012:  Former Petaluma Speedway Champion and current
point leader Bradley Terrell made a strong statement that he will be a force to
be reckoned with for the Pit Stop USA Sprint Car Series championship with a
thrilling last lap pass for the win in the Winged 360 Sprint Cars Saturday
night.

It was clear from the start of qualifying that the strong eighteen car field
would have an outstanding racing surface to compete on for round #6 of the Pit
Stop USA Sprint Car Series. Many track veterans commented that it was the best
track conditions at the 3/8 mile facility they had seen in many years. Napa’s
Richard Bailey set a blistering pace in qualifying with 12.568 second lap
followed by former Champion Dave Lindt, Jr., Ryan Rusconi and defending
Petaluma Speedway Champion Alissa Geving who made her first Winged 360 Sprint
Car appearance of the year in the F&F Racing x1 Pit Stop USA sponsored sprinter
normally driven by Andy Forsberg.  Chase Johnson, Billy Butler and Geoff Ensign
captured heat race wins showing early on how fast the Petaluma Speedway adobe
surface would be for the main event.

Richard Bailey started on the pole of the main event and led the first two
circuits before former track Champion Art McCarthy, Jr. took a wild ride into
the turn 4 fence, climbing over the wheel of Ryan Rusconi bringing out the only
red flag of the feature event.  It was the second flip of the evening for
McCarthy and caused a lot of damage to the #19 sprinter ending his evening.

When the race resumed Dave Lindt, Jr. quickly grabbed the lead on lap number
three with Bailey and Alissa Geving in hot pursuit.  Lindt began stretching the
lead over the following laps, but the real action was heating up behind the
third place car of Geving between Bradley Terrell, Chase Johnson, Billy Butler
and Geoff Ensign. 

Once Terrell got by the x1 of Geving he set his sights on the black and yellow
#01 Bailey Brothers machine and the two drivers put on a great show with one
slide job after another exchanging positions lap after lap. Once Terrell made
the final pass of Bailey, he set his sights on Lindt who was noticibly off his
earlier torrid pace.  The last two laps saw Terrell pull a perfect slide job in
turn four to get past Lindt and looked to have the win locked up. But the savvy
veteran Lindt had other ideas and drove the #52 sprinter deep into turn three
with a final slide job attempt, briefly passing Terrell in turn four. But
Terrell was not to be denied and got the #43 back by Lindt for one of the most
exciting finishes in Petaluma Speedway history.  Richard Bailey finished third,
with Chase Johnson and the winner of the previous two Pit Stop USA Sprint Car
Series events Geoff Ensign finishing fifth.  Brett Rollag, Kirk Simpson, Alissa
Geving, Jake Haulot and Ivan Worden rounded out the top ten.

On Saturday, July 7 the Pit Stop USA Sprint Car Series takes on the California
Civil War Sprint Car Series in the second of the three appearances at the
Petaluma Speedway 3/8 mile.  The Pit Stop USA Wingless Spec Sprint Car Series
will also be on hand for a great night of wheel to wheel action.  Don't miss
this one!
