From Ryan Evans

Here are the results from Costa Mesa on Saturday Night as posted on Costa Mesa's own website. Sorry there aren't any details, but I was out of town. This was Cosa Mesa's Summer Season Opener, the first night of speedway since the Fair Derby three weeks ago. Shawn McConnell scored his second double main event victory of the season. This was McConnell's third consecutive Handicap Main victory and fourth out of five nights. This is quite an accomplishment for a back yardage rider. Could we be seeing a 70-yard handicap for the former Swindon Robin in the next week? It should be in the cards since he's made a mockery of the Handicap Mains recently.

McConnell's Scratch Main was his fourth of the season, which gives him the most Scratch Main event victories on the season as well. The attendance was 6,131.
