2 750 Production Robert Campbell dominated this class last year and when he hit the Pole for the Suzuki of Oakland 750 Production race, he was a clear favorite to repeat. Robert Campbell dominated this class last year and when he hit the Pole for the Suzuki of Oakland 750 Production race, he was a clear favorite to repeat. The new production rules and a little contingency money brought a few more players to the grid and it was good to see the once dominant class; as far as attendance and competitiveness, attract a bigger field for Campbell to try to dominate once again.

3 Don Rudolphs would line up in grid spot two with Jeramiah Grant to his right. When the OPG class was well gone the green came out for the the race to the first turn was on. It was Campbell, Rudolphs and Grant leading a tight bunch of racers thru one and a fast starting James Randolph was on the move to join the lead group.

It was Campbell, Rudolphs and Grant leading a tight bunch of racers thru one and a fast starting James Randolph was on the move to join the lead group. Rudolphs stuck close to Campbell as they stormed thru the wheelie bump, Riverside Banking and on to Lost Hills. Grant was still in touch and then a closing Randolph looking to move up and this was looking good. Randolph is making a point of running the whole series this year and has been doing the training and practice to make the most of it according to a pit interview.

Robert Campbell has been on Top in 750 Production for 2 years and came out strong in his defense despite some new competition

4 Randolph made the most of his run closing in and passing the two men ahead to get to P-2 and looked to close in on Campbell at the ½ flags. Bokum had caught both Grant and Rudolphs as well and we had game on for all three of the top spots. Randolph was working hard and passed Campbell on the front straight as the White Flag appeared only to have Campbell re-pass on the brakes into Turn One. Randolph was not happy with that and moved by in Turn Two and we had one hell of a good dice at the front.

Nakashima battles Rudoplhs Yamasaki with a good run Randolph and Campbell one to go

5 The battle continued around the track and the two were going at it with Randolph holding the spot around the banking and thru the Lost Hills and the AFM Turn heading back to the esses and the last turn onto the front straight. The battle continued around the track and the two were going at it with Randolph holding the spot around the banking and thru the Lost Hills and the AFM Turn heading back to the esses and the last turn onto the front straight. Campbell was not giving in and wanted to keep his long running win streak intact. Randolph wanted to break the streak and prove his work was paying off with a winning effort. The two men were nose to tail into Turn 11 with Campbell looking to the draft as his way to secure the win. Exiting onto the straight he made himself small and eased out of the draft for a shot at the win. Carrying good speed he was able to make that work taking the win by a wheel length at the line in a thrilling finish. Campbell was not giving in and wanted to keep his long running win streak intact.

Campbell kept his win streak from last year alive with a last lap draft pass at the line

6 Danny Yamasaki ran a good race and finished in third. This year looks to be the end of Campbell’s win streak at some point, but I am sure Campbell is seeing thing differently and will continue to charge.

7 600 Production The Keigwin’s @ the Track sponsored production class had some real talent on board to fight for the win and we saw some good fights. The Pole was left vacant as last years Champ Net-Moto Racing’s Andy Carman has set aside the 600 for just the AMA Races and is focusing on the big bikes for the first time in his career.

The Pole was left vacant as last years Champ Net-Moto Racing’s Andy Carman has set aside the 600 for just the AMA Races and is focusing on the big bikes for the first time in his career. The Marin Cycle Works Honda of Jeff Tigert next to him. Berto Wooldridge was next up with Bret Nelson and David Glenn filling out Row One. The anticipation of the highly competitive class was creating some excitement in the paddock as we had some other real fast riders buried deeper in the field and the expectation of some wild action was being felt.

Chris Siglin jumped into the 600 Production class and took a 4 th row starting spot to a good result. Very expected of the talented young rider.

8 Grant Riggs took his new Jelly Belly/Bike World Suzuki to the inside of Row two with Neil O’Reilly, Matt Eccleston running under the Werkstatt banner, and Kenny Carlotta on the outside. KFG’s Chris Siglin and Ken Hill were one tow on Row 4 and the Respol / SJ Yamaha of Net-Moto Racings Bobby Fong was stuck way back on Row 9 and had big ambitions of cracking the top ten to secure a better grid spot for the upcoming race at Infineon in April.

When the green flew it was Tigert jumping off the line first and leading a frenzied field into Turn One. Both Hill and Siglin had good starts and were near the tail end of the lead group at the start. Riggs was left on the line with bikes zipping by on both sides with an unknown mechanical problem, an experience he said he does not ever want to repeat when asked about it later in the day.

9 Fong had made the most of his start and even more dramatic moves as he went around the outside of multiple riders in Turn Two as he tried hard to get in touch with the top ten. Siglin had gotten a rocket start and followed with some daring racing bravado working up to second place exiting Turn 3 and Hill had also worked some magic slotting into 3 rd by the Bus Stop. He was not done as he made a super move around the outside of Siglin in the Riverside Banking to put two Honda’s out front in production for the first time in recent memory.

Tigert used the time well and was clearly ahead into the Lost Hills and all alone as they entered the short shoot back unto the front straight. Hill had second with Siglin third and the Wooldrige, Carlotta, Glenn and then a gap back to, amazingly Fong. Tigert continued to march out front with Hill easing away from Siglin who was starting to do the same to Wooldridge.

Net-Moto Racing’s Chief Mechanic Alan Sepega/ owner of Sportbike Dyanmics had 8 days to get Fong’s bike broken in …………….and ready to race

10 Fong caught Glenn and moved by and worked his way up to Carlotta in the Riverside Banking showing good speed on the R6. Across the line next time it was Tigert with a big gap back to a now battling Hill and Siglin. Fong had gotten by Carlotta and looking to close on Wooldrige who was 10 bike lengths behind the fight for second. Carlotta and Glenn were still there and the fight for the top ten was furious and very fun to watch.

When Phil Brown showed the ½ way flags it was Tigert still with a good margin over Hill and Siglin who were closing a bit, but still too far back to think of the win. I am sure they were busy thinking of how to beat the other guy to the checkers.

11 Tigert continued his mastery and we found Siglin making a move to get by Hill in Turn 11. Across the line they had 10 seconds on Fong and Wooldridge now found himself fighting off the 17r of Brant Wiwi, who also was showing impressive speed as he marched towards the front. Carlotta, Glenn, Lenny Hale, Eccleston and Andrew Brown, another young talent were next. Tigert continued his mastery and we found Siglin making a move to get by Hill in Turn 11.

12 Fong had gotten by Wooldridge in an exhibition of his 11 years of racing knowledge and obvious skills, but was no where near the front with little hope of moving any further up in the standings.

Before we got to see the White Flag we had an incident in Turn One that sent two riders, #126 and #261, to the pavement and one bike completely destroyed. Oscar Covarrubias was moving thru the exit of one when a flying machine ripped him off of his R6 and left him with a separated shoulder and causing the AFM Officials to stop the race.

13 Tigert claimed the victory and Hill had gotten back by Siglin to make it Honda’s one-two. Fong had an inspirational run thru the field to claim 4 th and no doubt when we return to Infineon we’ll have these 4 guys all on the front row we will see some memorable racing.
