Week 9
Friday July 10, 1998 - Fast Fridays Speedway
By: Gary Roberts

World Champion Greg Hancock made his first appearance at Auburn since he moved to England, nearly a decade ago. Auburn was one of the tracks that Greg learned to ride on, when he was a member of the California Junior Speedway program. This visit, he left his mark by winning the scratch main event. Could this be an indication of what may happen when Greg returns on September 25 for the AMA National Championship? A large crowd turned out to see Greg's win and to enjoy a night of good racing. Apologies for the sketchiness of some of the results and again, I emphasise, these are not the official results, just what I managed to scribble down in between all the fast action.
