Brent Kaeding won the 30-lap feature on opening night of the 17th annual Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals
at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA. Rain forced cancellation of the second night of competition,
with Thursday's points eliminated and the format changed to a one-night Saturday shootout for 75
cars with $6,000 to the winner. Without the benefit of a solid A-main starting position based on
points, and a heat race lineups based on a pill draw with no time trials, Kaeding transferred out of
Saturday's B-main and charged from 22nd to 6th place in the 40-lap feature on a demanding rough
and heavy track made soft from rain.
