Both the Super 600 and Non-Wing divisions feature amazing point battles for the $1,000 tournaments. Ashton Torgerson of Oregon leads the way in the Super 600 thanks to two distinct wins this year. Torgerson is aiming for his first Delta Speedway championship in 2022 with a 16-point cushion over 2018 Super 600 champion Nico Panela of Stockton,
Ashton’s older brother Austin Torgerson, Isaac Sharpe of Grass Valley, and Rayo Salmon of Fresno make up the top five credit. Panella is the only former champion in the top five of the standings, with Salmon coming close to second in the championship – during Panella’s title race ironically.
Austin Torgerson leads the points in the Non-Wing with a 37-point stronger advantage. Geoffrey Bahl of Brentwood is second in the standings. Panela is third in his first full season of Non-Wing racing. Panella is looking for a Delta title in his sixth career and will complete the “Course” if he can win the Non-Wing Championship, as former Son Sprints, Limitations, and Super 600 champ.
Former track champ Brandon Curry of Rippon and 11-year-old Jet Barnes of Visalia wrapped up the top five off the wing. Both the non-wing race and the Super 600 at 30 laps per night feature Sizzler’s $500 to win for each featured event.
Lucas Muldin of Rancho Moreta in a race that would make Keith Richards jealous with three straight wins in a restricted advantage. 25-lap races pay a minimum of $300 to the winner each night. A consistent season for Brentwood’s Adriana Demartini is only 29 points behind in second. The 2021 Jr. Race Champion. Kellan Harper of Pleasanton came fourth followed by Andrew Smith of Castro Valley.
Briggs Davis of Manteca used a combination of straight wins to snatch the points lead in the Junior Sprints. The youngest motorcyclist races the Speedway in 20 laps for $200 to win. The latest Delta race winner is Vacaville’s Jackson Tardiff, who is second in points and only 11 points behind. Maya Mauldin of Rancho Morita, Heston Steps of Oakdale and Haven Sherman of Citrus Heights finish the top five.
