AUBURN, CALIFORNIA, August 4, 2017

A couple times in during the racing season everything lines up perfect for Bryan Yarrow and the guy is just plain unbeatable. This happened for Yarrow in front of a near capacity crowd last Friday at Fast Fridays Motorcycle Speedway in Auburn at the Gold Country Fairgrounds as he put together wins in both the handicap and scratch main events. A veteran rider, Yarrow began his career in the junior ranks in 1994, and now sports a racing resume that is long and full of championship accomplishments.

For Yarrow the main event wins were the first for him this season in both programs. Yarrow races off the fifty yard line in the handicap program and faced tough competition in with Charlie Venegas, Billy Janniro, Louie Mersaroli, Daniel Faria and Jeremy Estes also advancing into the handicap main event. Finishing only third in his handicap heat race, Yarrow transferred and won his semi-final heat and never looked back. Riding skillfully Yarrow calmly worked his way to the front and held on for the win. Mersaroli was second and Janniro was third.

Yarrow again faced Janniro and Venegas in the scratch main event along with Tommy Hedden. Yarrow was first in his scratch heat race, but finished second in his semi-final heat advancing to the main event. As the tapes went up Yarrow was just on fire. He got a good gate and caught the inside lane in turn one, and after taking a little heat from Hedden in the first lap he slowly pulled away increasing his lead with each lap. Hedden took second, Venegas was third and Janniro fourth. “When I’m on, I’m on, I had a good second race, the bike was on and I just took it from there,” said Yarrow. “I have fun, I love it and if I win one main event I might as well win them both.”

For the second time this season Lawrence McNutt took the Division II main event, adding more yardage to his starting position next week. McNutt, now has found a home on the forty yard line for the time being. Shawn Eldredge was second and Michael Achilles was third. Aaron Sorani took the Division III main event, Casey Cornilsen was second and Peter Pecorilla was third.

The Extreme Sidecars made their fourth of five appearances at Fast Fridays this season and again packed the house with their diehard fans. The team of Joe Jones and Tom Summers won the sidecar main event, but all the five teams that traveled to Auburn’s tricky dirt oval put on a great show for Fast Fridays fans. The Extreme Sidecars will make their final season appearance at Fast Fridays on September 1.

The youth main event was won by Landon Norton. Norton entered the main with a five points tied with Greg Moore. Rounding out the main event were the Dion brothers Anthony and Timmy. It was all Norton though as he grabbed the checkered flag. Anthony Dion was second, Moore was third and Timmy Dion was fourth. Cameron Krezman was first in the consolation main event, followed by Landon Collins, Sammy Tetrault and Enzo Sorani.
