Chad Nichols makes a clean sweep at Shasta Speedway

Chad Nichols made it two-for-two in Bay Cities Racing Association (BCRA) pavement midget races in 2020, as he brought his broom and made a  “clean sweep”  of the event at the Shasta Speedway in Anderson California on Saturday October 3rd,  a race co-sanctioned with the Washington Midget Racing Association

Nichols in the bright orange #17 Shanonian Esslinger topped the 10-car field in qualifying, then captured the first heat race over Tony Seidelman and Kenny Woods. Mike Gardner won the second heat race over Marty Munce and Skeet Flake.

Nichols started the 25-lap feature from eighth place and won handily over Tony Seidelman with former BCRA champion Maria Cofer third and   Kenny Woods fourth. Mike Gardner finished fifth, followed by Garrett McLees, Andy Gleason, Marty Munce, Doug McLees and  Skeet Flake.

Next up for the BCRA midgets is the “Prospector Pandemonium” at Placerville Speedway on October 10th in a co-sanctioned event with the Untied States Auto Club (USAC) Western States midgets.
