Two young drivers made statement victories in a thrilling season opener for Madera Speedway, with 12-year-old Vito Cancilla becoming the youngest winner in the history of the Pro Late Model Series, while 13-year-old Cam Carraway earned a coveted breakthrough win in the 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model Series.

The wins came before a healthy crowd at the fastest one-third mile in the west Saturday evening.

Cancilla, the 2023 Jr. Late Model champ, earned the $5,000 victory after sliding around the outside of his teammate, Eric Nascimento. in the closing stages of a grueling 100-lap grind. Both Cancilla and Carraway race for the Nascimento Motorsports team.
