A couple of shout outs this week, First to Bone Stock driver Shawna Randall. Shawna will compete this week and then she is off to college and Military service. The second shout out is to young Kaiden Fisher who got torn up in heat action and wasn’t a factor for the win in the main event but was a true gentleman when the lead lap cars came by, Kaiden pulled over and let them go on by. Don’t forget this week is the Tiger/ Street Stock/ Strictly/Wildcat 50 lapper .That’s it for this week, check the Riverside Speedway and Adventure park website for everything that’s happening.
