Holmes Set For Three Madera Pro Late Model Races

Eric Holmes will compete in three Madera Speedway pro late model events this year.

ESCALON, Calif. – Bob Grossi Construction will partner with Nascimento Motorsports to field NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion Eric Holmes in three Madera Speedway pro late model races.

Holmes will compete in the Nut Up Pro Late Model Series in 80-lap events on April 27 and May 25 along with the 150-lap, $10,000-to-win Short Track Shootout on Oct. 5.

Holmes has won the Short Track Shootout three times for Nascimento Motorsports.  He will be teamed up with Eric Nascimento Jr., who is running for Rookie of the Year in the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour while also racing regularly in the pro late model division at Madera. Eric Nascimento Jr.’s younger brother Ethan Nascimento also races in the Bandolero division.

The Escalon area-backed program includes additional support from Nut Up Industries, Morrill Industries, Grossi Fabrication, Grossi Electrical, Stump Industries, and Select Harvest of Turlock.

Madera’s Nut Up Pro Late Model Series is a nine race program that averages nearly 30 entries per event. Nick Grossi drove for the team in 2018 and earned a second-place finish in the rookie standings, with a best qualifying effort of third and a best finish of seventh last July.
