Again the weather was kinder to us, a pleasant 80 + degrees which made for comfortable viewing and easier track preparation. Although a little heavy to start with, the track soon enabled some great racing, viewed by a good sized crowd.
It was not a good night for a number of riders. There were a lot of crashes and some injuries.

Unofficial results:

Scratch Main
1. Bobby Hedden
2. Mike Faria
3. Charlie Venegas
4. Bart Bast
Bart was injured, unable to take part. Bobby Hedden got a great gate, Charlie fell in the first corner and Mike fell in turn three. An unhappy Bobby Hedden had to do it all again. This time Charlie made it easier by touching the tapes and reduced the field to two. Bobby got the gate, and that was the main event.

Scratch Consolation
1. Bryan Yarrow
2. Eric Carrillo
3. Tommy Hedden
4. Greg Hooten

Handicap Main
1. Billy Hiles (10)
2. Tommy Hedden (40)
3. Bobby Hedden (50)
I did not get the results for the other 3 places. Bart Bast (50), Matt Browne and Greg Hooten were the other competitors. After the finish of the race Billy Hiles fell in turn one. Bobby Hedden laid it down, but Bart Bast had nowhere to go and ended up in the wall. He left the track vertically, but with a suspected broken leg. This will end Bart’s season. This must be the most pointless injury ever collected, after the race was over.

Handicap Consolation
1. Richard Christian (10)
2. Eric Carrillo (40)
