When the skies cleared Saturday afternoon and the sun came out I gathered up my camera equipment and headed to the Peoria Speedway. They were hosting the AMA Holeshot Series. There were a total of twenty-nine races that included 50cc racers, Open Quads, Seniors and Pro/Expert singles. The event was brought to you by Steve Nace Racing Promotions.
Michigan Pro Jared Mees held off Brad Baker of Chehalis, WA and Rob Pearson of Morton, IL to capture the All-Star Nationals Flat Track main event at the Peoria Motorcycle Club. The win was Mees’ fourth in the last three weeks. Here are the results from the other classes at Thunder Valley on Sunday. Mikey Martin of Acampo, CA won the Pro Singles race, Galesburg rider Mike Caves won the Vintage Twins main event and Cole Anderson of Cambridge, MN took the 450 Amateur race.
