The man simply known as Meatball pulled off another great event: the 2015 Hot August Nights flat track races at Perris Raceway. Surviving the terrible desert heat, this was possibly the largest Hell on Wheels turnout to date. The event saw every type of bike and rider imaginable—kids on full-fledged flat trackers, newbies on vintage and minis, a girls-only class, and old guys on flat head Indians going fast as hell. The racing was exciting sure, but the array of the different types of bikes and rigs in the pits were equally as entertaining.

This guy just finished a 22,000 mile motorcycle ride across the US. It's Nate Hudson, with BA Moto, who just completed his ride the night before this event.
Recognize this bike? The cast wheels are in the truck. It's Go Takamine's Indian Chout (Chief in a Scout frame) from the Born Free 7 show. He actually raced it.
Three words: AMF.
No, these weren't raced.
Julian with Deus raced this bike through the night, but snapped a chain (we believe) during the main event.
