August 3, 2001
From Gary Roberts

Another pleasant summer evening at Auburn.  As has become the norm here now, the track was heavy early on, but turned into a great racing surface by the end of the evening.

Scratch Main
1 Bobby Hedden
2 Bartlomiej Bartecki
3 Chris Manchester
4 Eric Carrillo

Bobby Hedden, riding a brand new out of the box GM, rode invincibly, to take "The Double," the scratch main and the handicap main.  Polish visitor Bartlomiej Bartecki did incredibly well, by getting second.  This was the first time he had ridden on a less than quarter mile track.

Scratch Consi
1 Bart Bast
2 Dukie Ermolenko
3 Tommy Hedden
4 Mike Faria

Handicap Main
1 Bobby Hedden (50)
2 Jim Estes (30)
3 Eric Carrillo (30)
4 Josh Larsen
5 Chad Felicio (30)
6 Tommy Hedden (40)

Bobby Hedden won the admiration of everyone, by riding an outside line.  He followed the same line and got past the entire field.  Another holiday-maker, enjoying a relaxing vacation in nearby Reno, NV, Jim Estes stopped by to take second place.

Handicap Consi
1 Bart Bast (50)
2 Chris Manchester (50)
3 Tom Adams (0)
