"Fast" Eddie Castro booked a perfect score to win his fourth main event of the season at Wild West Speedway in Winchester Ca.
The main event started with Bobby Krips sitting in the pole spot. Nate Perkins was in gate two. 16 yr old Dario Galvin drew gate three and Shaun Harmatiuk was given gate four. To round off the starting position was Castro in gate five. When the tapes went up it was Castro who jumped out first and took the lead followed by Harmatiuk,Galvin,Krips and Perkins. Krips took to the outside and forced Perkins wide where there was not much traction. The result ended up with Perkins on the ground. With no red flag, the race continued toward turn three where Krips drive on the outside ended with him loosing traction and falling off to join Perkins in the back of the field. This turned the race into a three man event. With Castro in the lead Hamatiuck put on an excellent ride in second to try to reel in the Flying Castro. On the last lap Castro went a bit wide exiting turn four and Harmatiuk just missed the chance to win his first main event win. Dario Galvin took an impressive third Krips was fourth and Nate Perkins was fifth.
Round one of three rounds started with Galvin getting the victor over Danny Perkins. Heat two had Castro beat Nate three was Kripps edging out Neil Facchini.
Castro began round two with a win over 17yr old Justin Boyle. Heat 14 was won by Nate Perkins beating John Stunkard. Krips ended the second round with a win over Shaun Harmatiuk.
With two rounds in the books Krips came out in round three to beat Boyle and guarantee himself a spot in the main event. Harmatiuk beat Stunkard to get his spot in the main and Castro kept the pace with Krips to beat Nate Perkins. The winner of the last chance was Dario Galvin who hunted down Neil Facchini to take the win and the final transfer spot.
In the division Two Main Gomez, Brock and Baldwin gated together but Gomez went to the outside after bumping together with Brock and Baldwin to take the lead exiting turn two. While they entered turn three Brock came into the corner too hot and went down giving the second spot to Baldwin. Rohn Zellner finished third and Brock was credited with fourth. This was the sixth straight main event win for Tim Gomez.
Third division is really turning into a hot battle. There was a lot of over taking and when it was all over it was Steve DziadusJr., took home the honors in that class. Kerry Conner was second, Mike Boyle who started from the ten yard line was third. Steve Dziadus Sr was fourth Tom Hamilton 5th and Kim Steven's 6th.
Youth Division One had a great battle for the lead. Nor Cal's Jay Rickets got a great gate and lead going into turn one. Krystal Cramer took to the inside and made the pass on Rickets. Following her closely was Jason Ramirez who wasn't about to let his perfect score of the night get away. He chased Kramer for a couple of laps before making his move and passing her on the inside. Ramirez was fist, Kramer second and Rickets third.
Division Two Youth also had a great battle between Nathan Galvin, Blake Bowen and Ricky Valdez, Jr. With the win going to Blake Bowen. Galvin took second followed by Valdez, Eddie Conner and Joey Holt.
