Thanks for coming and sending off the season with a spectacular evening of racing. Sad it has ended, but at least on such a High Note.
98 Riders, 11 Half trackers. Crazy fun and excitement.
Pros, Former Pros, Upcoming Pros and Fast riders all came out to put their skill and speed to test here in paradise.
Who could have asked for a better Tuesday Night! With a crystal clear sky and ever glowing moonlight.
Our BIg Enchilada for the evening was our Club Coach Nate Berkheimer. You could here the crowd cheering NATE. He showed the riders what it truly means to rail corner 3 hard, just as he has coached them all so many times this season. With that rail, he slid in beside Manny, and made a run for the white line. Monroe Hutton on the gas, made a hardcharging effort down 4th to pass Manny at the line. Great night of racing in the Super 'X' 20 class.
Cruiser guys are getting faster and faster, and tonight Rory Ennis was on fire, going line to line, beating out a determined Grant, in the Cruiser 'A' main.
Mike Merriman continues his new found win streak, improved confidence and skill, and grabs the 'B' cruiser main title. Mike put his monday night coached jump skills to test, jumping the second straight table, and pretty sure we heard him cheer as he did so. Laurie worked her magic and skills in the Womens cruiser class, scaring Tony Lyons, each time she jumped the 2nd straight table. She has it dialed in nicely now and is having alot of fun on her bike.
Summer MacMullen grabbed her win in the 9 Boys Novice class, showing her determination and progression is paying off for her.
Thomas Way, Kaelyn Coles Lyster and Everett Brisbin had some nice runs around the Track, Thomas edged out Kaelyn each race, but she has proven time and time again, never discount the power, strength and ferocity of a girl.
These 2 girls, and many other men and women, boy and girl riders, have all benefitted from Lauries encouragment and riding tips this season.
Big Congratulations to Declan Bittel on his move to Expert.
We know we have a few more riders, ready to move up to Intermediate at Abbotsford Indoor now as well.
