Jeremy Doss Wins in Photo Finish at Madera Speedway


MADERA, CA – The Madera Speedway has been the scene for many photo finishes and throwdown last laps in the MAVTV-televised Nut Up Pro Late Models and 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model Series, but on June 20th fans watching on Short Track TV were treated to another barn burner finish in the tune up club race.

The June 20th club race was held in accordance with current state, county, and local health guidelines. Race fans cannot attend these events at this time, but Madera Speedway is has invested heavily into a high-quality live stream production that is free for our fans to enjoy.

Fans from all over the country tuned into Short Track TV to watch the June 20th club race and what they witnessed felt more like a heavy weight title fight than a tune up race from the 20 car field of late model drivers. Jeremy Doss started on the pole but it became very clear this would be no walk in the park as Joey Iest, Thomas Martin, Matt Erickson, Michael Mitchell, Austin Herzog and Matthew Went all had a trip to victory lane on their minds.

Doss was shuffled back to fourth at one point and it appeared as though Herzog took control of the race but after a long run Herzog fell back into the clutches of Iest and Mitchell inducing a three wide battle through turns three and four that ended with Erickson spinning in turn one bringing out a caution.

After the restart Herzog could not hold off Doss and Iest and it was not long before that fight for the win was between Iest and Doss that engaged in a battle for the lead that lasted all the way to the white flag where Iest got under Doss going into turn three heading for the checkers but a caution came out ending the race with a yellow/checkered giving Doss the win by a nose.

Erickson was flying back through the field with what looked to be a winning race car and it was he and Martin that were engaged in a throwdown for third place battle that caused the caution after the white flag came out with Martin spinning off turn four.

Doss picked up the win and also received a $250 bonus from Competition Carburetion plus the $50 fast lap bonus, followed by Iest and Erickson. Lily Mead finished 7th and picked up a $250 bonus from Competition Carburetion for being the biggest mover gaining the most positions in the race.
