Another well executed night of speedway at Vallejo. Compared to Auburn, the weather turned decidedly cold and windy and the track is still experiencing minor holding together problems, but neither stopped a great night of racing.
In the scratch main Matt Becker touched the tapes and started 20 yards back. The order from the line was Tommy Hedden, Chad Felicio, Kenny Ingalls and that is the way they finished, with Becker in tow.
The Handicap main had more action, with first Ben Essary hitting the wall, then Chad Felicio falling and Jim Lewis having to lay it down, causing a restart. Winner was Kenny Ingalls ahead of Tommy Hedden.
