Hamill Leads Team Lucero to Motorcycle Title

Billy Hamill of Monrovia had a perfect score of 15 points to lead Team Lucero to the team racing championship Friday night in speedway motorcycle racing before 3,115 fans at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa.

Team captain Steve Lucero added 11 points to lead his team to a total of 35 points. Team Schwartz was second with 33 points as Jim Sisemore scored 13 points, followed by Team Christian with 32 points and Team Oxley with 20 points.

The top scorers from each team met in a main event with Hamill winning his sixth race of the night. There will be no racing next Friday night because the U.S. Championships are scheduled Saturday.
