Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider- Driver Exclusives. VISALIA, Calif. (May 12, 2019) – Cash Lovenburg welcomed himself back to victory lane this weekend during a display of dominance at Lemoore Raceway Saturday night.
Saturday marked the third win of the young 2019 season and with his runner up finish Friday night at Keller Auto Raceway he has yet to finish outside the top 2 this season. Not only did he win Saturday, but he left the field to battle all alone for second on this night. However the racer in young Lovenburg still has him searching for more.
“It was a lot fun out there,” Lovenburg said. “I do still think I could have been faster so I’m going to go work on those things.”
The weekend for Lovenburg racing started Friday night at Keller Auto Raceway Plaza Park. Cash opened his weekend by turning in an uncharacteristic 4th place qualifying effort while Ty came in right behind his brother with 5th quick, but just a tenth behind the top qualifier. In the heat race Cash was able to make the moves that eventually earned him the runner up bid going into the main. Ty was running in the 3rd position until he was taken out in the last turn which broke his shock mount; unfortunetly ending his night.
As the current points leader at Keller Auto Raceway Cash Lovenburg had already earned a target on his back. When the green flag dropped on the 20-lap main event Cash got right in the mix. Until this weekend his first two wins of the season took place at Plaza and he was hungry to do it again. At the end of 20-laps Cash came up one spot short and turned his attention to the following night at Lemoore.
Going into Lemoore the points picture was completely turned. At Lemoore, Cash sat in second, had a season-best finish of 2nd. His three consecutive second place finishes to the same driver had him so focused on beating one car it parlayed into total dominance.
The only 2nd Cash got at Lemoore this time around was qualifying. He did qualify second but once the heat races came around his hunger was noticeable. Lovenburg drove away from the field in the heat. Meanwhile in the same heat Ty Lovenburg came home with a 3rd place finish in his heat, allowing him to keep his 4th place qualifying time.
The Race four Jr Sprint main event at Lemoore Raceway was no contest this weekend. Cash Lovenburg was bound and determined to do whatever it took to claim the checkers. He lead from flag to flag and even opened a margin longer than a whole straitaway at one time. As he crossed the checkered to pick up his first win of the season at Lemoore he was still over ten Car-lengths ahead of 2nd.
In Ty’s case things didn’t pan out quite the way the team hoped. With Cash drawing a 4 car invert Ty would start the main on the pole! Unfortunetly he would lose a chain on a restart ending his night. Ty Lovenburg was officially scored at 11th position. Although things didn’t go his way for the mains Ty really stepped it up this past weekend. He looks to carry this new found confidence with him for the remainder of the season.
Up next for Lovenburg racing is two weekends from now with the highly anticipated, coveted, Tachi Palace Nationals at Lemoore Raceway. Once again the Memorial Day tradition will grace the property of Lemoore and celebrate the service of all our lost military members. Lovenburg Racing is excited to get back to the track and celebrate such a great cause at a big race.
