SAN JOSE, CA, MAR. 28, 2015

The ninth annual San Jose Indoor Pro Short Track was held at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds Expo Hall, promoted by P&D Promotions. This year the program changed from a practice on Friday and racing on Saturday to a full day on Saturday.

Jared Mees won the Pro Main, as well as the 230cc Pro contest. There were also lots of other classes, ranging from Electric bikes to Vintage machines.

Here are some photographic highlights of the day’s events…
