Photo Report: Nex-Trax Arenacross Friday Night

Story and Photos by James Lissimore

 

Well, night one is in the books here at Chilliwack as we wrap up the 2008-09 season with the final double header. Friday night saw the Monster Energy/Leading Edge Kawasaki team take the top 2 spots in both mains as Jeremy Medaglia and Brock Hoyer battled for the win in both classes with Medaglia coming out on top in his first ever arenacross race. In the head to head racing, Keving Lepp scored a suprise win over Hoyer to take the cash. Look for a more complete report on Sunday but here's a few quick photos from last night's action.
