Paris Speedway - July 27th 2012. Friday night. the track was in very good condition, it provided the riders with a much gripper track due to the rain storms on the day, leaving a thicker/heavier stone dust surface.
Terry Rideout gated like he was fired from a rocket with Mike Hammond and Aaron DeVeau behind him. The track was deep & grippy leading to some interesting slides.
Mike Hammond, won with Terry Rideout and Aaron DeVeau working on different lines try to figure out what was needed to win.
The same scenario as heat 2, with the riders still adapting to the interesting track surface.
Mike Hammond gated well from the inside, with Rideout and Deveau hard in pursuit, coming out of 2, Hammond Lifted and had to back off as Terry Rideout took advantage and went around outside. Rideout himself then went wide in 3 & 4 on lap 2, luckily held back Hammond and DeVeau, then again on lap 3, the same scenario for Rideout, this time Hammond was ready, and pounced to grab the win of the night.
