It is with deep regret that I have to announce that Steve Bast passed away this morning. (Tue Oct 30, 2007)
Steve's many speedway achievements include two National Championship wins 1969
and 1973, six California State Championship wins 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974
and 1975. He was a prominent scorer for the US team in USA vs The World events
in 1974, 1975, 1976 and 1978.
My condolences go out his family.
There will be a memorial service and celebration of Steve's life on Sunday November 11th at noon. It will be in Auburn at Lou La Bonte's restaurant and family and friends are welcome. The restaurant is on the south frontage road by highway 80, just east of the Foresthill/Auburn Ravine exit. Northern California

Congratulations to Nate Perkins on becoming a Dad!
If anyone is wondering what has happened to Southern California visitor, rider and promoter, Nate Perkins, the answer is that Nate and his wife are the proud parents of a new baby girl. That's why we haven't seen or heard from Nate in the last while. Mom and baby doing great. Congratulations Nate, we look forward to seeing you back soon at Auburn.
