PERRIS, CA, JULY 17, 2017

It’s been hot. Seems like the weather starts to cool down, then the thermostat gets turned back up for the weekend.

Round five of SCFTA racing went well, with 24 main events being run and a first-time Pro win for Clayton Williams! André Ochs and Kayl Kolkman took second and third, respectively, so you know Williams earned it!

Heats were hot and it was tough to keep a race-y track, but as the sun went down, the track came around.

Fred Berger had a get-off in the Brakeless class and got hurt a bit; keep him in your thoughts…

[Stay tuned for more from this event to be posted soon on Today’s Cycle Coverage… Editor]

Round six at Perris Raceway will run on August 12. Beware: There may be sound testing…

Saturday night, July 22, is the A.J. Herrera Memorial race at Ventura. The story is that there’s a $20K purse for the Pros. With Calistoga running on the July 29, there should be many top Pros running!

Also on Sunday, July 23, Douglas Motorcycles will host the second annual RAT (Riders Association of Triumph) Roundup ride. While this is primarily a Triumph event, all bikes are welcome. The gates will open at 8:15 a.m., kickstands go up at 9:15. Destination to be announced…

The BSA Owners Club of Southern California will also be staging their “Rim of the World” ride the same day. Arrive at 9 a.m. and depart at 10 a.m. This event is not limited to BSAs, but I think it is vintage-oriented. Some pretty cool bikes show up for this event. Last year’s event was a lot of fun. Come check out the bikes, if you don’t have a ride.

If you’re not going to Calistoga on July 29, there will be an open practice for dirt-track riders at Perris Raceway, from 4 to 9 p.m. The evenings have been really nice after sundown!

Hell On Wheels will be back for a Hot August Nights race on August 5.

I am looking for “Vintage” dirt-trackers to display at an upcoming event: Ascot, Trojan, Orange County, Corona and the like… Contact me at elliott@elliottpowersports.com or 951/900-6064 if you are interested!

Ron Wood (Norton, Rotax, BMW, etc.) may want to rent the track at Perris Auto Speedway for a test-and-tune session. Again, contact me if you are interested. This would be for AFT Twins and Singles riders (or maybe anyone who wants to put up the cash to help pay for the track!)…

See you at the races – or the RAT ride!
