Haddick's Classic Car Night - Industry Racing, CA, USA - July 10
Charlie "The Edge" Venegas finished off a perfect night by winning the main event on Haddick's Classic Car Night at Industry Racing.
The four riders entered the main event with the extra incentive of $1,000 that an anonymous sponsor had donated to the main event purse. Venegas had first choice of starting position and picked gate one. Aaron Fox chose gate four with the second choice. Jimmy "Little Animal" Fishback, who has been driving in the Pro Lite Unlimited Class of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and was competing for the first time in a speedway event this season, selected gate two. Shawn "Mad Dog" McConnell was left with gate three.
Venegas launched from the starting line and into the lead as the field entered turn one. Fox tried to make the outside work but the former National Champion drifted up into his line on the back straight and thwarted his attack. Venegas settled onto the inside line entering turn three and McConnell went under Fox for second place. Fox settled into third in front of Fishback. Venegas cruised the rest of the way and the positions remained unchanged. Venegas was first to the checkered flag, McConnell finished second, Fox was third, and Fishback finished fourth.
Venegas kicked off the evening by defeating Fox. Tyson Burmeister blazed to victory over "Battling" Buck Blair in the second heat. Fishback showed no rust by trapping from the outside and beating Tim Gomez in event three. McConnell beat Tyson Talkington to end round one.
Former Junior National Champion Jason Ramirez started round two with a victory. Venegas beat Burmeister for his second straight win. Fox held off Blair in event 15. Fishback finished the second round with his second victory in a row.
Blair began the final round of heats by using the outside to pass and defeat McConnell. Venegas beat Talkington for his third consecutive victory. Fox handed Fishback his first defeat in event 27. Burmeister closed out the heats with a win ahead of Gomez.
Fox used a brilliant outside move in the first semi to get the win while McConnell took advantage of a Burmeister mistake to get the second transfer to the main. Venegas maintained his unbeaten evening by winning the second semi with Fishback following him into the main.
