Round six is here! This Saturday, August 12, at Perris Raceway, the Southern California Flat Track Association will be running another night of cushion dirt-track fun!

The gates will open at 12:30 p.m., practice will start at 3:30, with racing to follow. Please, if you’re spectating, park across the street; parking is limited for the racers. You can bring your own coolers, but please, no glass bottles!

Riding your motorcycle out? Park behind the grandstands!

It looks like this will be another warm weekend. Start hydrating on Thursday! Gatorade, PowerAde and the like will probably be a good idea on Saturday to keep your chemical balance in line, too!

While the AMA standards for sound have been adopted at Perris, it’s still a good idea to shoot for the old 98-dB limit. Check your mufflers – make sure they’re full, but not packed too tight. Two-stroke lovers might want to take the muffler apart occasionally and burn off the carbon and oil before repacking with fresh material. I like the sound of a well-tuned two-stroke!

Hell On Wheels went off pretty well – Hooligans and hand-shifters, brakeless classics, minis, twins and kids. Jasper Heathfield and Sierra Hickerson had nose-to-tail races all night long in the Kids’ race. Sierra won the main! Colt Foster and crew put on a demonstration of how the fast guys get around in the Modern class. Lots of racing for all who entered!

SCFTA racer Joe Roberts surprised everyone at the recent GP in Brno, Czech Republic, finishing 10th against some of the best riders in the world!

California boys did well at the Buffalo Chip TT in Sturgis. Briar Bauman took the win after Henry Wiles’ bike suffered a mechanical problem. Bronson Bauman, Kayl Kolkman and Mikey Rush also represented the Southwest in the Twins main!

If you’re planning ahead, Eddie Mulder will be running at Willow Springs on September 30 and October 1. This race will be held in honor of and in memory of longtime friend, racer and enthusiast Joey Brown of Paso Robles. This one is always a barn-burner of a Pro race and Dash For Cash on both days. Eddie and Jodi and friends always raise a spectacular purse for the Pros that embarrasses many of the other big races around the country for this near-season-end half mile.

Friday, October 6, will see races at Perris Raceway, with SCFTA the night before the American Flat Track Final National event at Perris Auto Speedway. Racers: Get to Perris early if you want a spot in the pits.

Looking for wheels and brakes? Kosman is back!

I am looking for “vintage” dirt-trackers to display at an upcoming event. Contact me if you are interested!

Ron Wood may want to rent the track at Perris Auto Speedway for a test-and-tune session. Again, if you are interested, contact me. 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! Time is short, so don’t wait too long!

See you at the races!
