Chad will join Bart Bast, Jim Sisemore, Bobby Hedden and Pat Linn in the Champion Challenge on August 28. In the eliminator format, five riders start, race one lap, the rider in last place is eliminated, then four riders, then three. When there are two riders left, they race for two laps.

Mike Faria update; as I understand it Mike plans to be back on the weekly program on August 21.He has a broken collarbone, cracked ribs and damage to a shoulder blade... Hope he is healed...They took a collection to help offset his medical bills.

In general the track was in great shape, the racing was excellent. A lack of division one riders has made the handicap racing interesting in the heat races but that happens sometimes. Bobby Hedden sat out the night due the fact that he was getting married the next day... That's why I got married in April....

Best race of the night was the handicap semi with Pat Linn holding off Bart Bast until turn 4 of the last lap, with Linn racing with a broken hand, he slipped off the proper line and Bart slipped past for an exciting win. Hicks has been a tear, he won the scratch main last week on Friday, won the Cal Expo Championship with a perfect 15 points on Saturday, and came back tonight with another scratch main win.
