Perris October 2

This weekend the fast guys will close in on the 1/4 mile dirt oval at Perris Raceway for a $2,000.00 pro purse short track, with all classes running. Vince said more clay was mixed in with the decomposed granite to get the track to hold together better, and it was pretty good already!

Harly says she will be wearing a skirt when she races. Dunno how that's gonna work, but bring your cameras!

All of the usual suspects should be there to run the Pro class, plus Henry Wiles has already been to the track checking it out. Jimmy Wood will be in town, Mike Avila's coming down, and I'm sure we'll have a few more of the world's best short trackers on hand!

SCFTA Perris September Race

Practice was fun & fast, at least until I got on Ralph's laydown Jawa speedway bike, which I lowsided after about 8 laps. (Hey, the track was wet! )

John Kocinski was on hand testing one of his Rotax-powered artworks, turning mid-14 second laps. Didn't get times for Jeff Evans, Jim Wood or Captain Craig, but they were also getting around the track at a rapid pace.

The next race is this Saturday, September 18. Gates open at 3 PM, practice after 5, races to follow. The grill will be up and cooking burgers and hot dogs, with snacks and drinks available.

Spectator parking is now in the lot across Fisher Street. This helps to keep crowding in the pits to a minimum.

New, larger racetrack with a cushion surface, lots of fun to ride. Classes from 50cc & lawnmower engines to twins, beginner to pro level riders.

Spectators $10.00. Grill and snacks at the track, or bring your own.

There will be no practice September 25, it has been taken off the schedule.

Perris Practice

Practice coming up this weekend, September 11. Weather should be in the 80s, instead of like the 100s we have seen.

Racing next on September 18. Not quite sure which round this will be, we missed two when rained out in Lakeside, and one when the track was switching from old to new.

Bring friends, bring kids, come on out to practice if you want to give it a try.

Everyone has talked about all of the effort that has gone into the track.
- The announcing/scoring tower in enclosed and air conditioned.
- Signup has a concrete pad - no more standing on stones!
- There is landscaping; trees, plants, irrigation, even a fountain.
- There is overflow parking across the street.

Come on out and support Southern California's only dedicated flat track!
