Back in the'70s and early '80s there were three SoCal Dirt Half Miles. Ascot, Corona and Speedway 117 in San Diego. On Sept 11th they are having the 50th Anniversary of Southbay Speedway AKA, Speedway 117. Should be great for all us San Diegans and SoCalians who remember the good times and the flying dirt roost. Its a proper indoor event with speakers, movies and sit down meal. All kinds of racing machines that raced there will be on display in the parking lot. In sheer numbers the Flat Trackers had to out number all the four wheelers put together.
Jared Mees has been riding the wheels off his Kenny Tolbert tuned, Rogers Racing Harley XR750. He has a 16 point advantage over his arch rival Bryan Smith on the Kawasaki. With two races left in the season, both Miles, Mees must pull out all the stops to keep his points lead. At a distinct disadvantage to the Kawi 's top speed on the Miles, Mees will no doubt have to draft by Smith at the checkers which will be no easy task. Just being on the tail of the Kawi at the perfect time will be tough , he then has to get by Smith who uses every trick in the book to beat his rivals. This is an ideal situation for us fans and is the way championships should go down. Get prepared for some epic Flat Track.
