"I would like to thank the clubs for their continued support, and especially WERA for hosting the round this year," says Shandra Crawford, California State Championship Organizer.

The Overall Heavyweight Champion wins a four-day Texas Tornado Boot Camp, the Overall Middleweight Champion wins a two-day Yamaha Champions Riding School, and the Overall Lightweight Champion wins a SoCal Supermoto School.
