Drivers shift into gear for three June events

Avid fans of the Diamond Mountain Speedway races were well entertained with three events taking hold of the June weekends.

Racing fans were initially enthralled with the races held June 15 with a second event scheduled to follow on June 16, but fans were forced to settle for just the Friday night action of June 15 as the track was rained out before Saturday rolled in.

However, with the June 16 races cancelled, the Lassen County Fairgrounds Grandstands made up for the misfortune with some back-to-back racing Friday, June 29 and Saturday, June 30.

Results from all three dates are as followed:
