Jarod Vanderkooi , 2015 Saddlemen Rookie of the Year, rode to an impressive Third place at the Perris half Mile. Riding his Richie Morris Racing Kawasaki he followed and Indian and a Yamaha across the finish line. Vanderkooi just signed a multi year contract with the team which gives him confidence in his program and he can concentrate on winning. He is teamed with Shayna Texta so the McElroy Packaging sponsored team is a strong one.
