“Handful” Kenny Hansen was back in action as a rider. Fast Eddie Castro was back in action at Industry. Pit Tootsie of the Week, Romie, helped get him into the main. Mike Achilles made the trip down from Auburn. He was doing well in the second division heats until Eloy found his “heel” for the main.

Salute to our Military night came with a presentation of the flag. Buck Blair was back in action. Brad Sauer gets a birthday hug from Trish Wells and Braden looks on.

Former World Champion Billy "The Bullet" Hamill took home a main event victory for the third consecutive week in front of a large crowd at Industry Racing.

Hamill entered the main event with a perfect score and wisely selected gate one. He exploded into the lead when the tapes went up and had Charlie "The Edge" Venegas, who started in gate four, in tow as they rounded turns one and two. Hamill opened up breathing room on the back straight and left Venegas to fight with Tyson Burmeister, and "Fast" Eddie Castro over the minor places. Hamill found the outside to his liking and stretched his lead with each lap for a blistering victory. Venegas held on to second, Burmeister finished third, and Castro was fourth.

Hamill opened the heats with a dominant win over John Marquez. Aaron Fox beat Neil Facchini in the second heat. Burmeister defeated Tyson Talkington to end round one.

Castro began round two by using the outside to beat "Battling" Buck Blair. Burmeister defeated Marquez for his second straight win. Hamill ended the second round with a defeat of Venegas for his second win in a row.

Fox was awarded his second victory at the start of the final round. Blair held off Castro to win event 24. Hamill beat Burmeister to end the heats as the only undefeated rider.

Burmeister and Venegas finished one-two in the first semi to transfer to the main event. Hamill handily won the second semi while Castro masterfully used the outside to get second and the other transfer to the main.

Marquez made a great start and kept Fox at bay to win the First Division Consolation. Facchini finished third and Blair was fourth.
Eloy Medellin put together four smooth laps en route to victory in the Second Division Main Event. Northern California's Mike Achilles finished second, Marvin Sonnier was third, and Ron Davis finished fourth.

The Third Division Main Event ended in a heap in turn three with Kip McClain getting the worst of it. McClain was transported to a local hospital for what was later determined to be broken ribs and a concussion. Jonni Jade led the restart from start to finish and claimed the victory. Mark Sincavage finished second and Craig Sprecher was third.

The Youth 250cc Main Event was aborted on the first two attempts after crashes brought out the red flag both times. Dalton Leedy led the third start before Broc Nicol took the lead on the back straight. Nicol held a comfortable lead for three laps before Max Ruml, who started from the 50 yard line, made his way through traffic and into second place. Max Ruml rapidly closed ground but Nicol was unfazed and led to the finish. Max Ruml settled for second, Dillon Ruml was third, Braden Sauer finished fourth, Dalton Leedy was fifth, and Kurtis Hamill was sixth.

Courtney Crone led the five-rider Youth 200cc Main Event for three laps. Braydan Galvin, overcoming a 60 yard handicap, had adroitly picked off his competitors and turned his focus toward Crone on the fourth lap. Crone stuck to the inside while Galvin swept around the outside and grabbed the lead as they took the white flag. Galvin cruised the final lap to secure the victory. Crone finished second, Michael Wells was third, Sebastian Palmese finished fourth, and Tristan Britt was fifth.

Luke Whitcomb won both his heats and topped his evening off by winning the Pee Wee Main Event. Nick Dunn finished second and Jake Troutt was third.

Dylan Beard and David Crews led the Sidecar Main Event the first lap but were closely pursued by Joe Jones and Johnny Glover. Beard and Crews left a small opening exiting turn four the second time and Joe Jones and Glover stormed through the gap for the lead. Beard and Crews were never afforded the opportunity to retaliate as Joe Jones and Glover were mistake-free the rest of the way. Dual Anderson and Ethan Smith finished third, and Chris Jones and Brandi McElroy were fourth.

Among the many fans in attendance was Barry Weiss from "Storage Wars". Television cameras were filming Weiss throughout the evening and in all parts of The Grand. Weiss graciously mingled with fans, posed for pictures, and signed autographs.

Industry Racing won't be hosting speedway on July 4 in observance of Independence Day. The next event will be Haddick's Classic Car Night on Wednesday, July 11.
