Challenge #1
Fast Fridays
May 17, 2002
From Gary Roberts

With the weather significantly warmer than last week's opening night, Fast Fridays second week of the season got underway. The track looked wet and slushy to start with, but quickly turned into a great racing surface, which remained good all evening. A good sized crowd had an enjoyable evening.

Scratch Main
1 Scott Brant
2 Bart Bast
3 Chad Felicio
4 Bobby Hedden
First out of the gate, Southern California visitor, Scott Brant established a 2 bike lead on the first lap, which he maintained for the entire race. The battle for second had Bobby Hedden on the outside of Bart Bast side by side and lasted until Hedden went down on turn one of the second lap. That remained the order for the rest of the race.

Scratch Consi
1 Bryan Yarrow
2 Tommy Hedden
3 Robert Curry
4 Alan Christian

Handicap Main
1 Scott Brant
2 Mike Faria
3 Robert Curry
4 Bobby Hedden
5 JJ Martynse
6 Ivan Sevart
Double main event winner Scott Brant found his way past Robert Curry, then JJ Martynse, and when his chain came off Ivan Sevart. Not even Faria could catch him.

Handicap Consi
1 Bryan Yarrow
2 Chris Kerr
3 Chad Felicio
4 Bart Bast
5 Alan Christian

Greg Hooten showed his years of experience gained in the Junior Speedway program by stealing the Division 2 main from race long leader Devon Defreece on the last corner. David Fonts and Bill Warnock had a good battle for third.

Richard Christian, son of Alan Christian, was in a class of his own. Better style, faster, but it looks like he is still gaining experience in traffic. I see him following Billy Hiles as the next Division 3 to Division 1 in a year rider.

Currently Northern California Speedway addicts have only Friday nights to feed our addiction, with still no prospects for anything on Saturdays.
