Motorcycle race

Ryder Meiring (56) and C Elscholz (199) battle for position in the Peewee heat race. 

The flat track motorcycles invaded Antioch Speedway for a special night of racing on the ⅜- mile clay oval track. Over a dozen different classifications of bikes took their turns on the speedway in the heat race and Main Event competition. However, the focus was on the Pro Am division, which competed for a $1,000 prize.

There were eight competitors for the Pro Am class, and the Top 4 heat race finishers would earn the right to compete in the winner-take-all $500 Dash for Cash. After winning the 10-lap heat race, Tony Meiring proceeded to score the big victory in the four-lap Trophy Dash.

Meiring had his eyes on the $1,000 prize in the 20-lap Main Event, and he led that race from the outset. Brandon Weller moved into second on Lap 2, and Chris McDougall battled his way into third. They would finish in that order..
