PETALUMA, Calif. — Brody Petrie earned his second-career Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction victory by taking Saturday’s 20-lap feature at Petaluma Speedway.
Petaluma was the site of Petrie’s first career win in 2021 and avenges a hard crash from Friday night at Ocean Speedway.
Petrie’s Kevin Felkins-owned entry was damaged heavily on Friday, requiring a slide over to the No. 11 car on Saturday night. Sage Bordenave and 2021 champion Blake Bower won the heat races to set up the lineup for the 11-car feature.
Bordenave and Bower shared the front row with Bower jumping ahead to the lead. Friday winner Bryant Bell dropped out with a mechanical issue on lap 10 and his teammate Bower subsequently fell by the wayside on lap 12 as well.
Petrie inherited the lead but faced a challenge from David Prickett and Bordenave.
Petrie held the lead the rest of the way over Prickett and Bordenave. Kyle Hawse topped Todd Hawse in a battle for fourth.
Feature (20 laps) – 1. 11 Brody Petrie, 2. 22q David Prickett, 3. 35s Sage Bordenave, 4. 20 Kyle Hawse, 5. 31 Todd Hawse, 6. 96x Logan Mitchell, 7. 20w Nate Wait, 8. 3 Sparky Howard, 9. 9 Blake Bower, 10. 09 Bryant Bell, 11. 35 Steve Durant
