Top Five Weekend for Torgerson‘s

Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider – Driver Exclusive. MEDFORD, Ore. (September 10, 2019) – It was a third and fourth kind of weekend for Austin and Ashton Torgerson as both earned identical main event results on Friday and Saturday night.

The weekend kicked off down in Visalia, California at Keller Auto Raceway Plaza Park Friday night for the Torgerson brothers. Ashton came into Plaza building on recent performances and looking to avenge the sixth place finish he earned last time at Plaza after starting third. Austin came in on the heels of a Delta Speedway Fast-time effort and the confidence of his speed constantly progressing.

Two races ago at Plaza Ashton debuted in his TEN-J with quick time. Since then he’s been right there, but yet to put an entire night together. Friday night he kept the 02 near the front in every event on track. It started with third quick in qualifying followed by fourth in his heat race. In his Restricted main event he would come to the green flag from the outside of the front row.

This time around Ashton relented the second spot but held the rest of the field at bay. At the end of 25 laps he brought the # 02 TEN-J home on the podium with third place. Friday nights finish earned him his 10th podium of the season.

For Austin, things came around at Plaza when they mattered most. He timed in eighth quick in qualifying and matched that result in the heat. But when the main event came out he turned up the heat and moved to a solid fourth place finish and well earned top five.

In the second half of their race weekend Torgerson Racing travelled back up to Dixon Speedway for race 12 of the track championship season. Ashton entered race 12 as the reigning winner, and current points leader. With four races to go before Saturday night Ashton entered with a 20’point lead.

Once again he was able to sustain his consistency by staying near the front in every event. When it cMe main event time he was able to do exactly what he needed to to remain the points leader as the season draws near a close. Saturday night he turned in his second podium of the weekend with another third place finish ahead of his title combatant. Saturday was Ashton’s 11th Podium of the year and potentially one of his most important as the championship is going down to the wire.

Saturday night was better for Austin overall as well. He was able to stay inside of the top 5 in every event on Saturday. He was 5th quick in qualifying, finished 5th in his heat, and once again kicked it up a notch to finish 4th in the main.

Both boys finished 3rd and 4th on Friday at Plaza and Saturday at Dixon. It was a deja vue kind of weekend.

Up next Torgerson racing will travel down to Stockton to race round 13 of the Delta Speedway track championship on Saturday night. Only two points races remain at Delta this season. Opportunities to grab wins on the San Joaquin county fairgrounds are evaporating but both boys will show up with momentum on their side as both have been reeling consistent and fast performances together. The next opportunity for the Torgerson brothers to shine goes live Saturday night.
