Riverside Paper Pro Six’s 25 laps: Justin Fuller lead the time trials with a lap at 17.291 seconds over an eight car field in the Pro Six division. The hot wheel of Adam Florian who has so far dominated the division would start shotgun to the pole sitter. Green flag race action soon began and from the three spot on the grid, Bobby Hall quickly did away with Fuller to lead lap one of the event. From there it was on and building a ten car lead by the latter stages of the race was the race leader. Justin Fuller would give chase but the evening in the Pro Six division belonged to race winner Bobby Hall. From Victory Lane, “Yeah man we finally did it, this car had so many gremlins when we first got it”, explained Hall. “It’s a pleasure to race against the Florian’s, to finally, finally get him, it’s been a long time coming. I mean, we worked so hard the past two years after Langley closed down, we didn’t know what we were going to do. I just got to thank Bill for bringing this track back and giving me an opportunity to race”.
In the second Pro Six race feature, the mandatory eight car invert was handed down giving Casey Sipe the pole and sending race one winner, Bobby Hall to the rear of the starting grid. Green flag would wave and on the move from the four spot was Travis Wall to take the race lead. After a few cautions in the early goings that knocked out the services of Bobby Hall and points leader Adam Florian. Travis Wall set sail while enjoying a lengthy race lead. But suddenly the lead collapsed as Casey Sipe with Justin Fuller would run down the leader. But with just a hand full of laps remaining, leader Travis Wall’s engine expired handing the lead to Casey Sipe. From there, Sipe would hold off the charge of Fuller and cross the stripe first for the race win. Casey Sipe from Victory Lane, “Appreciate my family for sticking in there with us, it’s been a rough couple of years, the year off when we didn’t have a track to come race. We by no means had a winning car tonight, the car was so bad in the first race I had to park it”, explained Sipe. We didn’t know if we fixed the problem so we elected to start in the rear. We’ve been down on speed all year and the car wont rotate through the corners like the new cars, I’ll take a win any way I can get it”.

Nick Smith in Victory Lane, “I tell ya, that was just some good ol’ short track racing there”, an exhausted Nick Smith said. “We didn’t have the best car tonight, Matt by far had the best car. It’s just them restarts and we were able to get our tires cooled and hang in there a little bit. I knew we were doing everything we could to race hard without wrecking each other. I just got lucky that’s all I can say, we were both just driving the wheels off of it and I came to the line first”.
