Corey Day claims victory with SCCT at Peter Murphy Classic in Hanford


Clovis, California’s Corey Day continued his torrid 2023 pace on Saturday night by claiming victory with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour at Kings Speedway in Hanford during the ninth running of the Peter Murphy Classic.


“It feels great to get another win here in Hanford tonight with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour,” Day commented after the race. “I want to give a big thank you to my entire team and everybody that supports us. This is an awesome event that Peter Murphy puts on and it’s great to see a large crowd on hand.”


The 30-lap SCCT feature started out with High Sierra Industries Dash winner Mitchell Faccinto of Hanford jumping into the lead of the race. Day wasted no time moving to the front of the field however, as he swooped to the lead with four circuits complete.


The 17-year-old pilot of the Four C’s Construction/ Elite Landscape Construction No. 41 had his way with things out front the rest of the way, en route to his third career Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards victory. Aromas racer Justin Sanders found the high side to his liking and blasted around cars to earn a strong runner-up finish aboard the Dale Miller Septic No. 4sa mount.


Early race leader Faccinto crossed the stripe in third to tally his first podium effort of the SCCT season. Three-time tour champion Kyle Hirst of Butte Valley put together a solid night coming home in fourth, with Justyn Cox claiming the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award driving from 13th to fifth. Completing the top-10 were Chase Johnson, Dylan Bloomfield, Ryan Bernal, Kaleb Montgomery and Sean Becker.


Heat race wins during the night were pocketed by Mitchell Faccinto, Dominic Scelzi, Chase Johnson and Sean Becker. Faccinto claimed the Dash win with Dominic Gorden winning the B-main.


Corey Day began the night by earning the Sierra Foothills Wine Services Fast Time Award with a lap of 14.338 around the 3/8 mile clay oval.
