The second race of the Tri-Holiday Classic has an official winner.
Justin Philpott's victory in Saturday's 100-lap holiday event at Stockton 99 Speedway was confirmed Monday by track promoter Tony Noceti after a post-race inspection. Noceti said it was his decision to hold up the official results for the inspection, something he's done before and plans to do again.
"It had nothing to do with Justin or anyone else in particular. I think every once in a while you have to do thorough checks of cars to make sure everyone is playing by the rules," Noceti said. "You don't know when we'll do it, or what divisions will be affected."
Noceti said he did not want to do the inspection in the dark and while the engines were still hot, so he held the car over until Monday at the track.
Although the full list of finishers was not yet available, Noceti confirmed Mike Wendt of Lodi was second and Matt Scott of Pine Grove was third.
Colby Potts of Stockton won the Modified main event by just over five seconds against Mike Regelman of Ripon. Other winners were David Kong of Stockton (B-4s), Matt Wendt of Lodi (Super Stocks) and Joseph Reichmuth of Manteca (Pure Stocks).
The final leg of the Tri-Holiday Classic is Aug. 30.
