God, its been a long time since we've been able to race. I don't remember when we've had so much rain. But it was a beautiful evening tonight for the "Return of Batman" Don Foster.

Heat 1 - Petz was first into the corner, but Johansen went underneath him in turn two. Johansen went wide a little later but was able to pull it back in before Petz caught up. Kern took first in the second race with some fancy footwork, as he tried to grind off his left foot a couple of weeks ago and it hasn’t healed yet. Looked like he was doing a Speedway Jig. Litt, Ball and Pieper were riding close in race three, but Ball began having bike problems and pulled out. Litt took the win.

Heat 2 - Foster slid under Harrington in turn three and Litt took the finish with only one wheel on the ground. Ball glided through race two with Johansen trying to catch up. Pieper peeled through the third race on his new laydown and Kern had a difficult time keeping his bike from flying in the air.

Heat 3 - Ball and Kern battled out race one. Ball got the gate, but Kern was first in the corner. They were side by side for most of lap two until Kern managed to pop ahead for the win. Litt did another wheelie as he won race two. Pieper took race three effortlessly.

Heat 4 - Johansen ate dirt in the first and hobbled off the track with a bruised butt. Litt won the race. Foster sampled some fresher dirt in the second, but was okay as Pieper took the win. Kern was first in race three.

Heat 5 - The main champs for the evening, Litt, Ball and Pieper, took first in these three.
