Industry Racing, CA, USA - July 24

Billy "The Bullet" Hamill returned to Industry Racing after four weeks and picked up right where he left off by recording another perfect evening and taking home a main event victory.

Billy Hamill, whose absence was due to his service as Team Manager of the United States National Speedway Team at the Speedway World Cup in Europe, entered the main event with a perfect score along with Charlie "The Edge" Venegas who had won both of the main events at Industry Racing while Billy Hamill was gone. Venegas won the draw and chose gate one. Billy Hamill briefly looked at gate two then decided on gate four. Under 21 National Champion Gino Manzares, who was a member of Billy Hamill's team in the SWC, quickly took the gate two that Billy Hamill passed on. This left gate three for Max Ruml who traveled and practiced with the SWC team and also competed in the Golden Hammer in Dudley, England.

Venegas exploded from the tapes and beat everyone to turn one. The former National Champion slid up to the track to block an anticipated outside attack from Billy Hamill but the former World Champion was one step ahead of him and had already committed to smooth cutback move that gained him the lead on the back straight. Venegas chased after the new leader while Manzares and Max Ruml battled for third. Billy Hamill led after the first lap and his lead was never threatened and he won his sixth Industry Racing main event of 2013. Venegas finished second, Manzares was third, and Max Ruml finished fourth.

Billy Hamill kicked off the evening with a win over Shawn "Mad Dog" McConnell. Venegas defeated "Battling" Buck Blair in the second heat. Max Ruml benefited from a restart to get the win ahead of Aaron Fox in the third heat. Manzares ended the first round by beating former Junior National Champion Jason Ramirez.

Max Ruml started the second round with a win over Ramirez. Venegas used the outside to defeat McConnell. Billy Hamill beat Blair for his second straight win. Manzares defeated Fox to finish round two with his second win in a row.

Russell Green began round three with a timely victory over Ramirez to scrape his way into the semis. McConnell held off Max Ruml to win event 24. Billy Hamill beat Fox to remain perfect. Venegas ended the heats by beating Manzares to match Hamill's perfect score.

Billy Hamill won the first semi with Manzares following him into the main event. Venegas and Max Ruml finished one-two in the second semi and transferred to the main.

Fox and McConnell waged a great four-lap battle in the Scratch Consolation with Fox ultimately getting the better of McConnell for the win. Ramirez finished third and Green was credited with fourth.

The first attempt of the Second Division Main Event ended with a crash in turn one and Braden Sauer getting penalized on the restart. Brad "Ironman" Moreau led the field on the restart while Sauer had designs on working his way to the front. He passed two competitors to get into second and set his sights on the leader. Moreau was still in front when they took the white flag but Sauer was on his back tire. Moreau drifted off the inside line as they exited turn two and Sauer charged through the opening, grabbed the lead, and held on through the final corner to take the victory. Moreau had to settle for second, Ron Davis was third, and Carl Gazafy finished fourth.

Steve "Beach Ball" Brown was the initial leader of the Third Division Main Event but Chris Wiggins squeezed through a narrow opening on the inside to take the lead in turn three. Brown tried the rest of the way to retaliate but Wiggins kept him at bay and earned the victory. Tony DeAlmeida finished third and Rick Howard was fourth.

Junior National Champion Broc Nicol was the leader of the Junior 250 Main Event through turns one and two but Dillon Ruml went underneath him as they entered turn three and took the lead. Dillon Ruml calmly withstood every challenge Nicol could muster and was victorious. Kurtis Hamill finished third and Dalton Leedy was fourth.

Sebastian Palmese was leading the Mini 150 First Division Main Event on the last lap when Courtney Crone fell and brought out the red flag. Palmese was awarded the victory, Gino Scopellite was second, and Crone was credited with third.

Alex Martin swept around the outside in turn one to take the lead in the Mini 150 Second Division Main Event and staked himself a comfortable lead. Meanwhile, Alex's twin brother, Sterling Martin, was slicing through traffic and went after his brother. Sterling turned in a valiant effort but it was his brother's night. Alex led Sterling to the checkered flag for a Martin Brothers one-two finish. Tristan Britt was third, Jake Isaac finished fourth, Travis Hamilton was fifth, third-generation racer Sam Hagon was sixth in his debut, and Slater Lightcap was credited with seventh.

Jake Kahl and Dustin Staggs raced handlebar-to-handlebar the entire race and it was Kahl who scored a narrow victory in the Pee Wee Main Event. Tristan Guerrero was third and Conner Salazar finished fourth.

The first attempt to complete the Sidecar Main Event ended with a thud in turn two and brought out the red flag. All drivers, passengers, and bikes were able to restart and none of the duos were penalized. Dual Anderson and Ethan Smith led the restart from start to finish and claimed the victory. National Champions Joe Jones and Johnny Glover finished second, Bryan Motis and Josh Bennett were third, and Jeff Rowe and John Bach finished fourth.

Industry Racing will be busy next week as it hosts two events in four days. Wednesday, July 31 will have all speedway divisions, juniors, minis, and pee wees and Saturday, August 3 will be the third round of the U.S. National Championship Qualifier Series. The best riders in California will be competing for a spot in the 45th Monster Energy U.S. National Speedway Championship in October.
