WILLOWS, California (June 1, 2016) — Joey Pascarella took fifth place in round three of the American Federation of Motorcyclists (AFM) premier class on Sunday at Thunderhill Raceway. The seemingly runaway race took an unfortunate turn due to an electronic issue with only two and a half laps left. Although Pascarella did not make the podium, he is still holding onto second place in the overall Dunlop Race Tire Service Formula Pacific Championship.

“This weekend was a bit of a rough one,” said Pascarella. “We had the lead for most of the Formula Pacific race and I felt like I had the win pretty easy. With two and a half laps to go we had an electronic glitch and the bike wouldn’t run past 8000 rpm. At that point I did what I could to bring the bike home with some points. I am really looking forward to the rest of the season and working to take back the points lead. I couldn’t do it without everyone and their support!”

Round four takes place at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, California on June 25-26.
