Cal Expo - Sacramento, California

Week 4
Saturday July 11, 1998 - Cal Expo
By: Gary Roberts

More good racing at Cal Expo, but again a rather disappointing turn-out crowd-wise. There were some horrendous looking accidents. Harlan Bast Junior lead the Handicap Main most of the way, but Tommy Hedden got past him on the last corner. Harlan made a final dash for the corner, found traction, the front came up and he went from the tapes to turn one along the ground. Right on his tail, Mike Faria managed to miss him somehow, and Bobby Hedden did a super quick Laydown. Earlier, in only the second race of the evening, Pat Linn fell down in about the same place, again after completing the race distance, but landed awkwardly when he got tangled with his bike. He sat the rest of the evening out, and I understand, spent the night in hospital with a slight concussion.
