Vanetti Takes Back Division 7 Points Lead at Sonoma

Team Silver Bullet rider Anthony Vanetti would reclaim the NHRA Division 7 Sportsman Motorcycle points lead after earning a second-round finish at Sonoma Raceway.

Vanetti came into the weekend second in points and the Loyalton native was hoping to have a strong showing at his home track to continue his championship bid. Vanetti would get off to a quick start to the weekend with a third place qualifying effort and pilot his Lucas Oil/SpillVak Suzuki to a first-round win over Eric Jaquith. In round two he would match up with NHRA Division 6 champion Don Depeel but just missed out on reaching the semi-final.

While his day ended earlier than planned, Vanetti was still pleased to regain the points lead on a day that caught out many of the top racers in the class. “The wind was playing havoc with everyone this weekend,” said Vanetti. “It made the conditions very unpredictable and it was really hard to run the numbers we were expecting. I had a tough matchup and got caught out by a gust of wind that pushed me out of the groove so we ended up going a tenth and a half slower than we planned. But fortunately, we were still able to regain the points lead so we’ll take what we learned and head to Utah.”

Vanetti and the Lucas Oil/SpillVak team will get the next four weeks off to prepare for the next NHRA Division 7 event at Rocky Mountain Raceway in West Valley City, Utah on August 23-26. The event is a double header and will be critical as the Division 7 season winds down. For more information visit nhradiv7.com or rmrracing.com.
