Charlie "The Edge" Venegas Races to First Win of the Season at Industry Racing

The riders honor the military.

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. (June 25, 2014) – As the 2014 season reached its halfway point, the motorcycle speedway community paid respect to our soldiers this past Wednesday night as Industry Racing hosted a "Salute to the Military." All the service men and women on hand were greeted and thanked for their service by a standing ovation from the grateful crowd. With two previous Scratch Main Event winners Billy Janniro and Billy Hamill absent from the action, the biggest race of the evening hosted a new mix of racers, crowning the third Scratch Main Event winner in the 2014 season. There was exciting racing in every division with crashes, consistency and aggression combining to produce the kind of action one can only see at speedway.

The absence of previous winners Billy Janniro and Billy Hamill led to a final four of riders looking to seize the opportunity in the Scratch Main Event. With Charlie "The Edge" Venegas on the pole, Russell Green in Gate 2, Buck Blair in Gate 3 and "Mad" Max Ruml on the outside, the tapes rose allowing Venegas to grab the early lead. The current California State Champion made his experience known, fending off the competition as Blair and Green each made attempts for the lead. The strong effort put forth by Venegas gave him his first Scratch Main Event win of the season. Blair ran a strong race in second, as Green captured third. Max Ruml took home the fourth position.

The Scratch Consolation featured Broc Nicol and Tyson Talkington battling for the early lead. Talkington eventually fell victim to a mistake and went down without contact, permitting Rocco Scopellite to slip into second place. Despite Scopellite's best efforts, it was the No. 100 of Nicol who was able to power down and hold on to his position to take home his second Scratch Consolation and become the first repeat winner of the event this season. Scopellite followed in second with Jason Ramirez third, while Talkington remounted and finished fourth.

The Sidecar Main Event brought forth exciting battles as crashes made for multiple restarts. The first rise of the tapes required a red flag as the duo of Dual Anderson and Robert Dent made contact and collided with the undefeated pair of Chris Jones and Johnny Glover. Jones and Glover were put at fault for the accident but were let off with a warning as all the racers made their way back to the starting gate. However, following the incident Anderson and Dent were forced to start the two-minute window allowed for repairs to their bike. Making it back before time ran out, the four pairs lined up again and awaited a restart. The second attempt drew Anderson and Dent into the lead with Jones and Glover trying to make a pass attempt around the outside. After switching to the inside, Jones and Glover were able to complete the pass with Bryan Motis and Josh Bennett hot on their heels. Unfortunately, the battle for the lead caused the two frontrunners to tangle, allowing Anderson and Dent to sneak by and capture their first win of the season.

In the Second Division, Ron Davis started on the pole with Mike Wiley on Gate 2. The Main Event start triggered Wiley to quickly get out front of Davis and hold a steady lead early in the race. Brad Moreau was able to get into the mix late, challenging both Wiley and Davis for first place. Despite the early pressure, Wiley was able to slowly check out and take his first win of the season.

The Third Division Main Event is always full of captivating competition as the rookie division. On Wednesday this budding talent went bar-to-bar in the battle for the win. Lewis Hughes was fortunate to get a good start as Wade Whitcomb and Steve Brown chased in a battle for the second position. Hughes was able to lay down four consistent laps and ride smoothly ride to his second straight Main Event win.

In the Junior 250 Main Event, Dillon Ruml started on the outside gate, getting the jump and clearing the pack. Gage Geist soon challenged Ruml and the pair were wheel-to-wheel until Geist took a spill and went down. Courtney Crone ran strong in second, but was unable to catch Ruml as he checked out to claim Main Event win for the fourth week in-a-row.

The Mini 150 Division Main Event has seen Sebastian Palmese dominate in previous weeks. As a result, Palmese started this Wednesday's Main Event with a large handicap over the other riders, beginning the race near the back wall. Off the start Jake Isaac got the jump, but was quickly challenged by Palmese, who made his way up the inside and quickly moved through the pack of racers. Isaac was able to hold off Palmese for a couple of laps, but a late move allowed Palmese to take the top spot and bring home his fourth Main Event win. Palmese will be absent from the next few weeks at Industry Racing as he will travel to Britain and tour Europe to showcase his talent alongside European youth.

The Mini 150 Second Division Main event featured another racer that was given a handicap to begin the race. Tristan Britt was forced to start behind the main pack as the tapes rose for the final Mini 150 Second Division race of the evening. Catching the lead group by the second corner, Britt used the outside to his advantage maneuvering through the crowd, taking over the first position and moving on to the checkers. Luke Whitcomb managed to keep Britt in his sights, but it wasn't enough and Whitcomb crossed the line in the second position.

The Pee Wee Main Event has been a showcase of the talented future of speedway throughout the 2014 season. On Wednesday, Rachel Schnakenberg got the upper hand early as she got a strong start and began to pull away from the group of young racers. Cameron Titterness held the second position, with the No. 13 of Tanner Richey closing in quickly. Richey continued his run to the front, passing each of the first two positions to take over the lead. Three-time winner Travis Horn put on a late-race charge in hopes of grabbing his fourth victory of the season, but it wasn't enough to get past Schnakenberg and Richey out front. Richey became the third different Pee Wee winner of the 2014 season.
