From Gary Roberts

After seriously heavy rain and low temperatures earlier in the week, Friday evening was warm and dry. The normal pattern at Auburn has been for the track to be heavy and wet for the first few races. Not the case last night. A dryer track provided some great racing right from the start. Having said that, several riders did find unexpected traction coming out of turn two.

Scratch Main
1 Chris Manchester
2 Bobby Hedden
3 Alan Christian
4 Chris Kerr
A third week of the season and a third main event winner. Last week's winner Scott Brant was victim of excessive traction in his semifinal, that converted a safe second place into an altercation with the wall. Despite hitting hard Scott was OK, but his bike was a mess, causing a premature end to his evening.

The Scratch main was determined at the gate. Chris Manchester got one of his perfect starts and that was it. Bobby Hedden tried an outside line, but it provided no advantage. Alan Christian, whose results are consistently improving each week was last out of the gate, but got to turn one before Chris Kerr. This was Chris's first scratch main.

Scratch Consi
1 Bart Bast
2 Bryan Yarrow
3 Tommy Hedden
Scott Brant qualified, but did not start.

Handicap Main
1 Bryan Yarrow
2 Chris Kerr
3 Mike Faria
4 Bobby Hedden
5 Ivan Sevart
Scott Brant qualified, but was again a non starter.
A 2002 season's second handicap main win for Bryan Yarrow. He outgated Chris Kerr and fell in behind front yardage man Ivan Sevart and patiently waited for Ivan to make his mistake. Ivan held off for 4 laps, made the mistake and the freight train went past. Mike Faria was unable to capture any distance on the two youngsters in front.

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