McMahan wins night 3 of Gold Cup

McMahan Opens Gold Cup Race of Champions Weekend with Victory

California native leads a sweep of top three spots with Meyers finishing second

CHICO, Calif. — Sept. 9, 2011 — Paul McMahan had lady luck on his side as he picked up his fourth victory of the 2011 season at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. With a challenging racing surface, the Elk Grove, Calif. native made the best of his pole position starting spot to lead all 25 laps. The starting spot was by virtue of his win in the night’s dash. McMahan started the dash thanks to a drawing of six, which placed him on the front row.

“To get a win here in front of (team co-owners) Dennis and Teresa Roth is huge for this team,” said McMahan. “The dash draw really helped us and it ment we got to start up front which was key. The track started taking rubber early on (in the night) and they worked it a little bit after time trials. For the feature, it still had a lot of rubber so I was trying to be patient as I worked my way around here. I knew Jason (Meyers) would give me a run for my money near the end and I had to keep him at bay. Great win tonight but we want to be golden tomorrow night.”

Meyers did try to make one last ditch effort to get around McMahan as he charged hard into turn three on the final lap but eventually had to settle for second. While he didn’t get the win, Meyers extended his points lead as second place runner in the standings, Donny Schatz, was caught up in an early race incident.

“I think they have it mixed up and the trophy girl should be standing next to me since she’s taller than Paul,” Meyers joked in Victory Lane. “It wasn’t quite the show we wanted to put on for the fans tonight but our DDNi/Media-Tile/All-Star Performance car was fast all night. Hat’s off to the crew and everyone around here. It’s great to race in front of these fans since I’m from here and hopefully we can pull off a win tomorrow night.”

Finishing third on the night was a relative newcomer to the Outlaws in the form of Shane Golobric. The Fremont, Calif. driver completed the “California Sweep” of the top three finishers and admitted that he learned quite a bit from the veterans who took the checkers ahead of him.

“Jason Meyers gave me sprint car 101 there,” said Golobric. “He made the move around me that allowed him to get second. I’m just glad to be out here learning and watching these guys. It really is a thrill to get our first podium finish and we hope we can get another good finish here tomorrow night.”

Chad Kemenah backed up his impressive 8th place run at Cottage Grove Speedway with a 4th place showing on the first night of the two day show at Silver Dollar Speedway. Rounding out the top-5 was another California driver, Jonathon Allard.

The stage is now set for the final night of the 58th Gold Cup Race of Champions on Saturday, September 10.
