Cooler temps brought out the parkas and gloves, but it was a gorgeous evening for racing in Perris, CA. The track and facility has never looked better, and the sign really says it all..... Carrie Hancock spearheads the Riders Meeting as Referee Josh Larsen listens in......

English rider Richard Andrews (left) managed to break the tapes early, earning him his first Stateside exclusion.
The Pee Wees rode hard all night long, but beating #275 Jimmy Fishback IV to the checkered was problematic!
Division 2 Juniors take off in another round of "Catch #45, Braydan Galvin!"

But catching Braydan Galvin is easier said than done! Division 1 Junior #98 Broc Nicol had his moment in the spotlight, but can you hear #308 Max Ruml shouting, "Get outta my way?"
Perris Raceway has a full-blown road grader and water truck when it comes to track maintenance. Very cool!

Once Max gets out front, the outcome is usually predictable: victory!
Division 2 riders had converging lines, coming into turn four. NorCal Rachelle Kerr made her D-2 rivals ride hard to catch her!

A big man who usually pilots the Harley-Davidson Sidecar, Div. 3 veteran T-Rod Requejo took the checkered in style. Div. 2 regular #101 Mike Wiley enjoys the view and having that pesky #313 Joey St. Louis in the way!
But Joey found a way, anyhow!

Div. 1 Main Event: Green has the pole; Jimmy Fishback in two; #39 Buck Blair is in three, leaving #26 Tyson Burmeister along the wall.

Jimmy Fishback IV

A few observations from Perris tonight from Steve Graham

Jimmy Fishback is at the top of the class of SoCal speedway riders right now.

Rocco Scopellite had the last chance in the bag until he looped it and went down hard in the last turn of the heat. Going to England upped his game considerably.

Russell Green came up huge with 8 points, tying Little Animal as top scorer in the qualifying rounds, to earn a spot in the Main. Going to England upped his game considerably too.

Rudy Lauer is a tough competitor always.

T-Rod hole shotted every heat he was in.

Joey St. Louis is fast but needs more work to see D-1.

Perris is a fine facility and any rider would benefit from riding on a longer track.

Hayley Perrault is going to be a sore girl in the morning. She went down twice, the second time being pretty scary, but she was up and running at the end of the night. She is one tough rider.

Once Max Ruml gets into his groove, he really is untouchable. A great future in this sports awaits.

Max may be untouchable but if anyone is gonna get him, it will be Broc Nicol. The past couple of months Broc has really been coming into his own. He's fast!

Time for Brayden Galvin to take the next step. He's run out of competition in D-2 juniors.

000 Mikey Ortega needs to lose the training wheels.

Carrie Hancock is a delight to work for.

Josh Larsen isn't going to take any grief as ref.

Last but certainly not least, Rachalle Kerr is one helluva speedway rider. It was the first time I've seen her down here and that girl has some serious game in D-2. Some bad luck in the Last Chance but could have easily competed in the D-2 Main.
