Round one of the S.C.F.T.A. was moved to March 28th due to a rain cancellation of the original dated. On this ninety degree day one hundred ninety three entries filled thirty six heat races and twenty eight main events! Notables in attendance were two time world champion John Kocinski (who remains undefeated), AMA Superbike champion Josh Hayes, his wife Melissa Paris (who won her first time at Perris), Road Racer Jeremy Toye, and former Cycle News editor Scott Rousseau who is currently the managing editor of Dirt Bike. Despite the large turnout, the twenty lap Pro feature went off at 9:32 p.m. and the nights program was finished well under the 10:00 p.m. curfew. The next race at Perris for S.C.F.T.A. is set for April 18th, with the rain make-up date the very next day (Sunday) the 19th of April.

#82 Travis Petton the 4th turned 15.39 seconds on his way to victory in the Youth 85cc 2-stk Amateur Main.

#22 Ashton Carlson turned an 18.04 second lap, a full second faster than second place in the Youth 50cc 2-stk Novice Main Event!

#5 Rachel Schnakenberg topped the Youth 50cc 2-stk Beginner field and can turn a lap time about as fast as you can say her full name.
