Douglas American Valley Speedway Drivers of Pure Mini, IMCA Modifieds and DART Dwarf racecars started their engines for the Saturday Night Races at Quincy's fairgrounds, be- ginning the 2012 American Valley Speedway racing sea- son April 28. Mother Nature accommo- dated the drivers, pit crews, staff and spectators with beau- tiful spring weather. The rac- ing climate of communal coop- eration in the pits before en- gaging in competition contin- ued from hst season.'Several teams like Portola's Jesse Van Kol, and Quincy's Brittany Nieman and Chris Nieman had given their cars new col- ors and an unble0aished look. Members of a group of Quincy Trojans have moved their skills to the race track. In the IMCA Modified class Chris Nieman is in his second season. Joe Wood has re- turned to racing from a med- ical leave. Justin Saltel is be- ginning his rookie season. Brittany Nieman has become a veteran in the Pure Mini class and works with the GoKarts. Brother Chase is moving up the ranks in his DART Dwarf car, The veter- ans like Quincy's Jason Cros- by are still strong competitors making the young bloods earn every point. The Pure Mini race had the same contestants as last year. The main had Larry White- bird take the checkered flag. Jon Busselen; last year's leader, did not finish but drove three laps on a flat tire before retiring to the pits. "Tall" Lance Bain finished second with Brittany Nieman in third. The DART Dwarf main had the new Jesse Van Kol car in first. The copper color must have brought him luck. Derek Rosse was in second with Ja- son Marshall in third. Veter- ans Joe Frock and Skip Hempler followed. The race had nine extremely competi- tive teams. Announcer Steve Ross has plans to change from a Legend car to a DART Dwarf car. We look forward to hi debut. The thunder of the night came from the IMCA Modi- fieds. Two identical cars fin- ished first and second. Richard Papenhausen was first with Bud Walberg from Chico in second. Nevin Ken- nemore was in third. Veteran Matt Murphy was in fourth. Trojan Chris Nieman was in sixth, Lady Erica Harmon was in, eighth. Concrete Bob- by Higgins was in 13th with Joe Wood in 14th. Seventeen cars finished. Saturday night was the be- ginning of a great season at American Valley Speedway. The next race is in two weeks: May 12. June 16 is the Califor- nia Highway Patrol Designat- ed Driver Program Night/California Civil War, 360 Sprint Car Series.
