Greensboro, North Carolina (February 23, 2009) - The Foremost Insurance Jim Neese Racing Team finished inside the top ten at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, California. Jim Neese finished sixth overall in the Arenacross class and put in a solid effort for the evening. In the Lites class, Neese got caught up in a crash which put him down a couple of laps. The race was red flagged but he was unable to join the restart.Mike McDade tried to practice but could not get through the whoop section without severe pain in his foot. The decision was made to have Mike sit out this weekend. He will fly back to North Carolina and see a physician this week to determine the extent of the damage to his foot.Josh Thomas rode great in the qualifier events and made the night show. He was not able to continue his dominating performance into the night show and missed both the Arenacross and Lites main events."Well it was a little lonely out there without my teammates in the main events this past weekend. I felt strong and thought that I would have finished better than I did. Unfortunately, it looks like Mike might be out for a few weeks. Josh would have had a great night if he rode like he had been riding in the qualifiers. He is showing that he has the speed, he just needs to be more consistent in his heat races," commented Jim Neese.Point Standings after the Sacramento, California Round:The team will be racing this coming weekend, February 27 and 28 in Reno, Nevada at the Livestock and Events Center.About the Foremost Insurance Jim Neese Racing Team
