West Coast Speedway League Three-Team Challenge
November 4, 2006 - Victorville
By: Ryan Evans


Buck Blair, Eddie Castro, and Kenny Hansen each turned in double-digit scores to spearhead the Industry Aces to a 59-45-28 victory over the Victorville Vikings and Sacramento Silver Machine in a West Coast Speedway League three-team challenge.

Blair scored a perfect 18 points, including the victory in the Top Scorers Race. Castro went unbeaten throughout the heats and compiled a total of 14. Hansen proved to be a huge asset at the bottom of the lineup with a perfect 12 points of his own.

The Vikings were led by Australian Kevin Doolan who competes for the Kings Lynn Stars in the British Premier League. Doolan scored paid thirteen despite riding borrowed equipment all evening after suffering from mechanical issues with his own bike prior to the meeting. Tim Gomez and Neil Facchini each contributed paid ten points to the Vikings' cause.

Bryan Yarrow put in a valiant effort for the Silver Machine by scoring ten points, but it wasn't enough to boost his team into the final round.

The three teams rotated pairs against each other over eighteen heats to determine which two would compete in the final round. The heat races featured some excellent racing which was highlighted by Castro making one of patented outside moves around Doolan in heat 30. His pass brought the crowd to its feet and drew high praise from his victim as well.

After eighteen heats, the Silver Machine were eliminated from contention leaving only pairs from the top two teams to contend in the final round. Industry held a 45 to 35 advantage prior to the final three events.

Victorville sent out the father-son combination of Steve and Blake Bowen against Industry's veteran duo of Hansen and Bryan Buffington. Experience proved more valuable than bloodlines as the Aces roared to a 5-1 and clinching the match.

Dream Teamers Neil Facchini and Gomez combined for a Vikings 5-1 over Travis Henderson and Rick Valdez in the Consolation to close the gap to 10.

The Aces' undefeated pairing of Blair and Castro rolled to the tapes against Doolan and Dale Facchini for the Top Scorers race in which the points were doubled. Doolan was first off the line and held the advantage after the first lap. The Australian rode a high line to prevent Castro from duplicating his earlier exploits, but this allowed Blair to utilize the low line and gain ground. The Colorado native made it a side-by-side battle on lap two with Castro getting to Doolan's rear tire on the outside. At the white flag Blair was underneath Doolan, but the Viking guest wouldn't give up on the final lap. Doolan found some traction exiting turn two and tried to make one last outside run for the lead. It wasn't enough, though, as Blair was able to hold on for the win. Doolan was second, Castro finished third, and Dale Facchini was fourth.
