For the third week in a row AMA National Speedway Champion Billy Janniro has proved to be the fastest man of the night at the Fast Fridays Motorcycle Speedway in Auburn CA. Last Friday night at the Gold Country Fairgrounds, unaffected by the heat wave baking all of Northern California, Janniro pulled off a stunning, crowd standing, and spectacular finish in the scratch main event. Working in the outside dirt against Auburn’s Tommy Hedden, Janniro caught Hedden at the finish line for a tight win. The win brings his total scratch main event victories to five for the season. Hedden was second, Bart Bast third and Bryan Yarrow was fourth.
Riding well this season, Russell Green picked up his first main event win of the season in the handicap main event. Green 25, routinely makes either the scratch or handicap main event or both at Fast Fridays and lives up to his nickname, “The Rocket”. Hedden finished second behind Green and it would be the first of two second place main event finishes for the evening for Hedden. Janniro was third.
Blake Borello continues to prove he has a real place at Fast Fridays. Beginning the season in Division III, Borello has quickly advanced. With his win Friday night, Borello now has now won three Division II mains in a row, and a Division III main event win the week before that on May 26. In the short season so far, Borello has ridden in all three division with a recent ride in Division I. He has won main events in two divisions so far this season. William McCloskey was second and Matt King was third.
Jon Curry won the Division III main event, Jake Estes was second and Casey Cornilsen was third. Cameron Krezman topped the Youth field winning the Youth Speedway Main Event. Anthony Dion was second, Landon Norton third and Enzo Sorani was third.
