Ricky Perry in victory lane.

13 Year Old Wins Very First Main Event

Young 13 year old Ricky Perry made it known he was not to be taken lightly on the race track. In his very first race in a full size car, he not only set fast time, won his heat race, and won his main event; he was second fastest out of 33 cars that included three classes...two of which were adult classes. His qualifying time was a quick 20.70 on the 3/8 mile track in Roseburg, Oregon. A time that was beat by only one person by a mere one hundredths of a second. Ricky won both of his races from starting at the very tail end of the field and leading by the end of the first lap and never looked back.
