There was no shortage of CHP on the side ticketing trucks and autos in the middle of rush hour. The temperature sign at the 10 in San Berdoo read 98 degrees but with the high cloud cover it didn't seem that warm.
There is lots of equipment that needs to keep running to put on a show. Putting on a race program is a lot of hard work that requires a lot of cooperation that may not be appreciated.
Tonight was September 11Th and the Denny Pyeatt Memorial Race.
The track surface tonight lacked the heavy outside dirt and was fast. Tyson Burmeister didn't ride as he was still recovering from Wednesday night get off. Buck Blair touched the tape in the semi and had to start from the ten and I think he came in third which put him in the Last Chance with Jason Ramirez. Jason won the Last Chance but if you look at slot four in the picture above Jason is missing as he touched the tape at the start of the main and was sent behind the fence.
Faria got the gate and Fishback was never able to get around him. I made the main and started outside against the fence (that is not an excuse) and was never able to catch Chris Jones.
There isn't any racing next Wednesday night at Industry as they will be dark until November. Next week here at IMS I will be in Salt Lake City watching my son ride at the Gatorade Flow Contest. He won an entry from their video competition and we are flying up and staying at a hotel and Gatorade is picking up the tab not papa.

Mr. Microphone Flanders suggested that they have make a calendar of women sidecar passengers but currently there would be only two months. My suggestion is more women on sidecars. Maybe a few women up front would help keep the inner track pipe staying put.
I can almost raise my right arm up completely after high siding and getting ran over last month but I didn't win the main. I did win my first race starting back on the ten and came in second in the next one which put me in the main but in the final if you have to figure out who and where someone is going you are not on the gas and you don't win. Buck Blair was on the gas all night.
I believe he won ever heat, then the main which does make for a good night in anybodys book.
