Lodi's Jackson Ezell was able to avoid crashing in an accident-riddled Mini Cups Division race and drive to a first-place finish on Saturday at the Stockton 99 Speedway. Ezell started on pole and led the entire race despite having to endure four yellows and a red. Manteca's two young-guns, Travis Affonso and Landon Reynolds, seemed to find each other at every turn. The race was finally cut to 17 laps and had to finish under caution as Affonso and Reynolds could not avoid the forces of nature as they came together for the last time on lap 17. Both cars had to be towed off the racing surface, handing the win to Ezell which was his second on the year.
Lodi's Michael Wendt placed third in the Western Late Models 100-lap Race for Autism, part of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Racing Series. After a restart about halfway through the race, Wendt jumped out to first place and held the spot for about 25 circuits through another restart in the crash-filled race. Despite holding the lead for a fourth of the race, Wendt couldn't hold on as Modesto's Mike David drove to victory. Wendt settled for third, just fractions of a second behind Carlos Viera.
