Golobic Holds Off Larson At Chico

CHICO, Calif. — Shane Golobic walked a tightrope between needing to stand on the gas and having no brakes to win the Sprint Car Challenge Tour to open Gold Cup weekend at Silver Dollar Speedway Wednesday night. But by lap 14, the pair took their duel to the front, with Mitry chasing Golobic, while behind them Kyle Larson was blasting up through the field from the back row after recovering from an uncharacteristic spin on the first lap. Golobic said he was too pre-occupied with trying to control the car without brakes to know that Larson was closing in. “Luckily, I didn’t need a lot of brake, except I had to be careful getting around lapped cars,” said Golobic, “but I was able to use the wing to slow the car down.”. “I got into a rhythm and I just needed two more laps,” said Larson.
