Briar Bauman Wins Salinas TT

16 year old Briar Bauman cleaned house at the Salinas TT which was held in conjunction with other Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Henry Wiles came from way back to nail the 2nd spot and the "Calistoga Kid" Steve Bonsie took the 3rd step on the podium. Ken Netto put on a first class show with a well prepped track and a big purse that payed the winner twice what a 450 National usually pays. Both Briar and Bonsie are from Salinas so they were definitely fired up to shine on their home track. Stevie blistered the track in qualifying and got Fast Time, then won the Dash for Cash and won his Heat. Briar showed his true talents and basically smoked the field in the main.
