Bobby Hedden wins the Main Event!

Bobby  Hedden 1999

From Gary Roberts

The third week of racing at Sideways Saturdays Speedway, at Cal Expo arena, in Sacramento. The track took a while to even out, then there were some great races. Just as the track at Cal Expo gets better every week, so does the racing.

Scratch Main
1. Bobby Hedden
2. Billy Janniro
3. Bart Bast
4. Ian Ferris

Bobby Hedden made a rocket start, anticipating the tapes perfectly. Billy Janniro pushed him all the way, but was unable to get past.

Scratch Consi
1. Chad Felicio
2. Robert Curry
3. Bob Hicks
4. Steve Martynse

Handicap Main
1. Ian Ferris
2. Chad Felicio
3. Bobby Hedden
4. Bart Bast
5. Billy Janniro
6. Robert Curry

The race was stopped after less than a lap as 30 yard men Ferris and Curry went down on the exit of turn 2. Curry was deemed the cause, and penalized a further 10 yards. This gave Ian Ferris the space he needed to establish a good lead and allow the battle to take place behind him. Second finisher Chad Felicio (40 yard start handicap) acted as a good isolator for Ian, and managed to hold back the other three 50 yard riders.

Tom Fehrman fell.

The crowd looked bigger than last week, but still fell short of what is needed for this promotion to break even on costs. After the races, a lot of enthusiastic SOSS (Save our Sideways Saturdays) campaigners left with posters and flyers to distribute throughout the area. Hopefully this will bring some new folks into the stadium over the forthcoming weeks.
