At 7:15 p.m., riders greet the audience in a 200-yard parade along the inside wall of the track, slapping high-fives to wide-eyed children and parents alike. Local favorites and national champions share the spotlight before all hell breaks loose at 7:30. Veteran racers Greg Hancock, Billy Hamill, Tommy Hedden, Mike Faria, Eddie Castro, Bryan Yarrow and Bobby "Boogaloo" Schwartz—all on the wrong side of 30 but enjoying long, if not lucrative, careers on the speedway circuit. They're defending their pro status each weekend against upstarts like 15-year-old junior-class phenom Ricky Wells, who's determined to earn a spot on tonight's roster. Like clockwork, four eliminations lead to 20 races and four dramatic finals, 28 races in two hours of bar-banging drama. Young Wells impresses the mesmerized crowd, but BMOC Greg Hancock takes home the bling and by 10 o'clock, lights go out and fans head home with new stories to tell.
