Billy Janniro Seeks Back-to-Back Wins This Wednesday Night at Industry RacingJun 3, 2014
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. (June 3, 2014) – After a stellar start to its 2014 racing season one week ago, Industry Racing is geared up for its second Wednesday night showcase of arguably the most exciting motorcycle racing on the planet. Night two, on June 4, will once again feature an action-packed evening with the stars of American speedway alongside the sport’s bright future. As always, Industry Racing provides thrilling entertainment for the whole family at an unbeatable price, with children and senior tickets for just $5, and adult general admission for $10.
Last week, Northern California legend Billy Janniro outlasted his longtime Southern California rival Billy Hamill in a thrilling First Division showdown dubbed “Battle of the Billys.” Thanks to his success at the season opener at Industry Racing, the only fully AMA-sanctioned track in Southern California, Janniro is coming back for more tomorrow night and will be in search of back-to-back wins inside The Grand Arena.
“Billy [Janniro] is all about competition and beating the best of the best, and he knows he’ll have a chance to do that each week at Industry Racing,” said track director Kelly Inman. “He and Billy Hamill have a long history together and their rivalry is one of the best things in the sport right now. The rise of youngster Max Ruml is also getting fans excited because he’s absolutely fearless and has no intimidation going bar-to-bar with these guys event though he’s just 17 years old.”
While Ruml missed out on lining up alongside Janniro and Hamill in the Scratch Main Event last week, he’s ready to come back on Wednesday night with a clean slate and look to get in the mix for the win. Another rider also in search of redemption is veteran Charlie Venegas, who experienced bike issues early on opening night and never had a chance to race his way into contention.
“We had a great turnout of riders for opening night and we’ll have a full slate again this week,” added Inman. “The great thing about speedway is that each week is a new opportunity to go out there and win. These guys aren’t worried about accumulating points throughout the season, they just want to go all out and do whatever it takes to win. It’s a go-for-broke mentality that results to some of the best action you’ll see anywhere in the world.”
In addition to the First Division, Industry Racing will also feature Second and Third Division competition in addition to the always-exciting Sidecar Division. Junior racing will be featured in the 250 Division, Mini 150 First and Second Divisions, as well as the Pee Wee Division.
A total of 11 weeks remain in the 2014 season at Industry Racing, with marquee events like “Legends Night”, the AMA National, and the second annual AMA/FIM Youth Silver Cup Championship looking ahead this summer.
