Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider. Driver Exclusive- MADERA, Calif. (December 16, 2019) – > Logan Trevino made his long awaited debut for TEN-J Chassis this season at Lemoore Raceway’s California Cup.
Engine troubles kept Trevino from scoring the ultimate result he had hoped for but things look promising heading into the future as he instantly adapted to the new car.
The transition to TEN-J had been a plan in the making but kept under wraps for a better part of the latter half of the season. With Trevino amidst a title run at Delta, and locked in such a close fight, things were better suited to not pull the trigger on such a crucial switch at that stage in the game.
However the plan to make the jump was always in the cards.
After Trevino came up aces at Delta with a stellar penultimate round and crowing performance at the finale, he only raced his old car one more time. He raced the championship winning car one more time at Delta and drove it to a runner up finish. That finish marked his 14th podium of the year, and seventh runner up finish at Delta.
Despite his incredible championship winning season, the time had come to pull the heavily weighted trigger.
The week of the Cal Cup arrived and the new car was unveiled on Instagram. Some were shocked, some were stoked, but everyone was ready to see how Trevino would fare in his new ride.
He rolled out for qualifying on night one of the Cal Cup and dropped seventh quick. Normally known as a marquee qualifier this result left him looking for more. He followed it up with third in the heat but as he went out for the main it was evident Trevino was primed and prepped for battle.
Trevino drew the pole for the night-one 25 lap feature. Just next to him was the title combatant he battled all year at Delta, and the driver who earned the Plaza Park and Lemoore Raceway championship crowns. In his first main event aboard the TEN-J, Logan Trevino was in for a dog fight.
A dog fight it was indeed.
Trevino jumped out to the early lead keeping the field at bay. Early in the going his pace setting lap times were the best on track. However in the mid stages second started getting faster and faster as was evident on the stop watch as well as by the naked eye. She was catching Logan.
As the battle ensued second was getting irritated and she dove inside in turns three and four putting her car where there was no room for one car, let alone two. She forcefully made the pass in a questionable dive bomb, but subsequently moved Trevino back to second where he would stay.
Friday night at the California Cup accounted for Logan Trevino’s 15th podium of the season, and runner-up finish in his TEN-J debut. What Friday’s performance also did was qualify Trevino directly into Saturday’s feature. All Trevino would have to run at the California Cup Finale was a trophy dash, and 30 lap main event.
As the Finale rolled around Trevino was set to make a run at his sixth victory of the season.
He came away with another second place finish in the dash turning in the second best lap time as well. His best time was two tenths off the best time turned in as he finished just .046 behind the leader after six laps.
Up next was the California Cup main event. Trevino was roll off the grid for the 30 lap feature starting from the third position. Early in the going he was fast but as the race continued it was evident there was a problem beyond his control. Trevino slipped back and out of podium position but never gave up. As 30 laps drew to a conclusion Trevino brought the TEN-J home with a fourth place run. It was his 23rd top five of 2019.
After the dust settled and the car came back it was found that the motor laid down on him. Under powered he was still able to maintain a top five. That kind of will to win bodes him well as the biggest race of the season approaches at the Tulsa Shootout. Trevino is set to run the Prosperi/Trevino TEN-J Chassis #7t in the Restricted A-Class In his Shootout debut January 1-5 in the Tulsa Expo Center In Tulsa, Oklahoma.
However the season wasn’t finished just yet for Trevino. As luck would have it he’d get to give the TEN-J one more go the following weekend at Plaza Park for Turkey Night. Look for the article taking a look back at that race right here on Sprint Car Insider.
