 Governor Brown's latested appointment is Christopher G. Rudy to a judgeship in the Santa Clara County Superior Court.

 Chris is the son of the late Al Rudy and has raced the the Classic 500-750 class for many years on his flathead Harley. 

Pictured in Saturdays race at Willow is Fresno Orthopedist, Dr. Cary Tanner on the 79x machine. Congratulations Judge!

Part II

Received a note from Chris

The cool thing about racing with Cary is that, at least on one occasion, our fathers raced against each other. Attached is a pic from a TT race in San Jose in 1948.  

From left to right are:  Al Rudy 66, Bob Chaves 20, Phil Cancilla 93 and Ray Tanner 79. In that race they finished Chaves 1, Rudy 2 and Tanner 3.

Hi All. Two steps closer to having permanent lights at the racetrack as the other day we got some lights from Power City Electric (Thanks Ben) and then we got nine 45' long power poles from the late Gary Hite's racetrack, which Star Rental helped us out by loaning us their BIG forklift and Kevin McRae helped us out by hauling them out to the track for us. This was a big project, just getting them to our track!

We still need a few more poles though and more lights, so keep your ears and eyes open.

Remember that we have a track work day on April 26th from 9-5pm, and then we have an open practice day the next day on April 27 from 3-8pm. Then our first race is May 3rd and May 4th.

Make sure and check out the web site at www.SpokaneSpeedway.com for info, classes and schedule!

Thanks and see you soon,

Indians at Volusia

I thought that you might enjoy seeing this.  We still bring out the seven 1949 Indian Arrows annually.  This year we ran the Volusia short track during Bike Week.  The riders raced them hard and put on a close and excellent show.  Yet, nobody fell and we went hope with seven running machines!  The riders are:

1.  David Aldana (no mistaking those leathers!)

2.  Timmy Mitchell

3.  Joe Baggott

4.  Chris Carr (someone said he had ridden in a few of these flat track races before)

5.  Shane Fox

6.  Beau Braswell (sings the new country "flat track" theme song)

7.  Charlie Seale (another former national number)

The photo with the riders mounted was taken in staging just before the riders went out for their first heat race.  The other photo was taken right after the main.  Fans came out of the stands and applauded as the riders dismounted.  They put on a great race.

Best Regards,

Mike O'Neil
