1999 Week 6
Fast Fridays Speedway, Auburn, CA
Friday June 11, 1999
From Gary Roberts

This was probably the quietest evening this season at Fast Fridays. I understand there was some local function going on (obviously less important than Speedway) and of course three of our top riders were away on Overseas Final duty.

Those not in attendance missed some entertaining riding from former top California rider, John Cook. John's list of credentials seems endless, but includes:

Today John lives in Sweden and rides for Smederna in the Swedish League, where his team mates are Billy Hamill and Mark Loram. The reason for his appearance here was to start the John Cook Speedway Academy. More info on this is to be found on www.speedwaybikes.com soon.
