LAKE BALBOA, CALIF. (JUNE 8, 2010) – 18 year-old Joey Licata, Jr. won his second straight ASA TRUCK SERIES race on Saturday at the Las Vegas Bullring after setting fast time and taking the lead on lap 29.


Licata is a member of Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle driver development and won the 2009 ASA TRUCK SERIES championship.  He won the last series event two weeks ago at Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, Calif.


Driving the #71 United Nissan / Justice Brothers Chevrolet Colorado, Licata set the fast time in qualifying with a 16.268 second lap around the three-eighths mile speedway.


By lap four of the 75 lap feature, Licata found himself up to third place and moving in on the leaders.  On lap 24, Licata passed Dylan Kwasniewski for second.  It took just four laps for Licata to catch leader Mike Herda and take the decisive lead.


Licata built up a lead of almost 2.5 seconds at the finish.  In 2010, Licata has two wins and two seconds in the ASA TRUCK SERIES and finds himself in the points battle despite missing the series event at Firebird International Raceway.


The emerging young talent will return to driving in NASCAR Late Models for Tim Huddleson’s High Point Racing on June 19 at Toyota Speedway in Irwindale.


“Joey’s performances in the trucks are amazing,” driver coach Ron Sutton said.  “As his development continues he is going to be a major threat in Late Models ... and beyond!”
