In our main event we have Nicholas Haye taking top honors. Not only did Nicholas win the race but he also recorded the fastest lap time of the night with a 44.057 time. The race leader to a commanding lead from the start with very few position changes among the rest of the field. Clean and enjoyable race to watch.
Sergei Maffei took a commanding lead at the start of the race. However, first time GP racer Akhil Patel and the racer that goes by Ghost weren’t going to let Sergei take first place with out a fight. As the group spread out in the race field the first place podium was going to be decided if Akhil or Ghost would be able to catch up to Sergei. With three laps left in the race it looked as if Akhil would gain enough ground on Sergei to challenge his position. In the end Sergei won the race with a full second ahead of 2nd place finisher Akhil followed by Ghost. A fun race to watch.
First place podium goes to Steve Butscher. Steve was remarkable quick in establishing his race lead and maintained a health lead throughout the race. The race to watch was going to see whom would eventually grab the second and third place podiums. Nick Buttacavoli, Brad Drew, and Mark Kempkey all charged hard and showcased some great pacing maneuvers between the three of them. In the end Nick and Brad respectively finished 2nd and 3rd.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 11, 2012) – He’s sold out over 25 dates on his inaugural arena headlining tour, but Eric Church’s The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour isn’t over yet! Special guests Justin Moore and Kip Moore will join Church for the upcoming portion of the tour, including a November 8 stop at Honda Center. Tickets for the Anaheim show will go on sale Friday, June 15 at 10:00 AM at ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster retail locations or by calling (800) 732-1727. Tickets will be available at the Honda Center box office beginning Saturday, June 16 at 10:00 AM.
In April, Eric Church: The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour was named No. 11 on Pollstar’s 2012 Worldwide Ticket Sales Chart for the first quarter, confirming the tour was one of the highest-attended across all genres of music from January through March.
Not only has The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour received huge response from fans, but it has also been met with praise by many outlets including The Boston Globe who wrote, “With his vivid songs, frenetic performances, and outsider allure, Church is a refreshing figure on the country scene.” The Reading Eagle added, “It’s been said a transcendent concert can resemble a religious experience, but this took it to a new level… the 34-year-old frequently exploded from the mic stand, arms pounding his chest, screaming at the crowd to boost an energy level that pyrotechnics and explosions had already elevated… the energy roared.”
Moreover, Church has tied The Blood Sweat & Beers Tour to a cause that will help those in need. Teaming up with Tickets-For-Charity.com, he is giving fans the opportunity to donate part of their purchase price to their favorite charity, and his partnering cause, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and its mission to find a cure for diabetes.
