What can I say. Ventura was awsome.
The weather was great. The grand stands was full.
The pits were full of a variety of machines and pilots.
Jim Naylor and crew did an awsome job on the track.
And no one got hurt. A perfect blend of flat track and speedway together in the same night at the same place. Young Mr. Woods did it up in the pro class. Skip Sandman won a strong first in the open novice as well.
The speedway races stole the show. With the likes of Phil Collins, Charlie Venegas, Fast Eddie Castro and others it was hard to be disapointed. I did not ride, so I was able to mingle in the pits, etc.
I ran into Mert Lawill, Bruce Brown, Keith Mashburn, and of course Gene Romero. There was a whos who of the speedway crowd too. Everyone was very accessible and wanted to chat. I am sure the same will be true at the next race on Sept. 27th. There is a rumor already going around that the Ventura race won't happen in September. I have it on good, no, great authority that the Sept race WILL Happen. Not to mention the 4 races next year.
It was more fun than you can have with your cloths on.
Dirt Track Racing is Alive and Well in California!!!
Lets keep it that way.
