It’s weekends like these first two races that make all of the blood, sweat and years of never giving up, worth it. I’m so happy to be able to win for Lucas Oil and SpillVak, who have been behind me 100%. Thank you to my team and everyone who has supported me!”

Crew Chief Rob Stockinger felt like the team was destined for victory at Fontana. “Everything kind of fell in place for us this weekend to where everything went our way,” said Stockinger. “It’s unbelievable how that happens. When it’s your day, it’s your day.”

An eager Vanetti is anxious to see if he can continue his hot streak at SpillVak’s home race. “It’s crazy to think we are undefeated this year and we’ll try to keep the ball rolling when we head to Vegas. It would be awesome to bring home another Wally in SpillVak’s backyard.”

Vanetti would like to thank all of his sponsors including Lucas Oil, SpillVak, Louie Tozser Designs, BDR,  OPTIMA Batteries and Impact.
