The GS Racing team put together a good night of racing with Katie Hagar in the “Hot Wood” 111 lap feature. She  qualified 10th out of the 17 car field which had six NASCAR late model champions representing All American Speedway, Altamont Motorsports Park, Stockton 99 Speedway and the reining Madera champion. Katie raced in the lead pack all night holding the 3rd position most of the way. With a few late cautions Katie brought the car home clean to a fifth place finish tying her previous best finish of the year. She currently is fifth in the points at Madera Speedway. We are off next weekend and will return to action on April 25th.


“We struggled a little bit through-out practice and in qualifying, once my crew chief and talked about some changes to make before the main event, we were able to figure out one rockin fast car..! I really owe it to my guys tonight. I couldn’t have done it with them.” Katie said after Saturdays 111 lap Main event at Madera.
