Rob Pearson/Weirbach Racing Sacramento race report

27 July 2013 the Sacramento Mile

We made it to Sacramento Friday after racing in Champaign, IL Wednesday night during the fair and that was a long drive in 2 days. We had a good night Wednesday at the cushion half mile in Champaign bringing home second to Sammy Halbert. Sacramento started out like usually a light cushion until eventually taking rubber and grooving up around the bottom. Qualifying didn't go as planned, after being around 8th overall the first 2 sessions, during the last session the track was prepped after our group and made for way faster times. This put us 21st overall and gave me a 2nd row start in heat 3. Fortunately the Weirbach racing SV 650 got off the line great and I made it from the 2nd row to take a 2nd place finish in the heat. Our heat race finish was good enough to get a spot in the dash for cash where we finished 5th. I got a decent start in the main event and ran as high as 6th, battling for most of the race with Jake Johnson and Kenny Coolbeth. I didn't save any tire for the end of the race and eventually had to settle for an 8th place finish. We ended up having a pretty good day after qualifying as far back as we did. Now we are getting ready for Castle Rock, WA this weekend and I'm ready to get back on the Honda and put it on the podium. Hope to see you at the races.
