Perris January 14
Rained out, possible reschedule
Ricky Wells makes his first US racing appearance in over three years at Perris this coming Saturday, 14 January at 5pm for the 'Dr Thermal Winter Olympique.'
Ricky joins a stellar field that includes Luke Becker, Max Ruml, Dillon Ruml, Gage Geist and Kurtis Hamill. Ricky comes off of the back of several solid seasons of British League racing and lines up for the Edinburgh Monarchs in 2017.
The event features the unique earned handicap race format where your previous race finishing position determines your handicap next time out. The top 3 after 4 rounds transfer to an all scratch final with 4-7 racing off for the last spot in an LCQ.
The purse for this event currently is $1,350 and hopefully it can rise further!
The event features a full supporting program including Support Classes, Juniors, Pee Wees, Mini Bikes and hopefully Sidecars (will confirm once entries are lodged).

Santa Maria Raceway
Santa Maria Raceway has expanded its bike schedule to four events for 2017 after a successful 2016. The schedule includes a round of the AMA National Speedway Championship Series on July 29th.
The season opener on April 15th will mirror the 2016 races of a mix of Speedway and Flat track and a $2500 speedway purse. The August and September races will more be slanted to flat track (no pro speedway classes planned as of now), but we will still run Vintage, Support, Youth and Sidecars in those dates.
The Santa Maria Raceway link has the official track release of the full schedule including car events.
April 15 - Spring Classic (Speedway and Flat Track)
July 29 - AMA National Championship Series
August 26 - Flat Track Championship
September 23 - Harley Hooligan Night and Flat Track
