“On Saturday we qualified fourth,” said Faccinto. “We knew we would be good at dash time. I started fifth and worked my way to the front and won. I started on the pole for the main event.”

The track was very abrasive and it was a fifteen lap feature. “There were a lot of cautions, but we ended up with the win,” he said. “We worked hard all year and to come in first at my hometown track is awesome. We use K&N products because they never fail us and are always a key part to our success.

Faccinto and the Gary Scelzi Motorsports Team are getting ready for the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Irwindale Speedway in California.
