Charlie Venegas will not win 11 main events at Industry Speedway this season; Shawn McConnell made sure of that by winning his first main event in more than three years on Wednesday night. Venegas, a San Bernardino resident, can still tie his record of 10 main-event victories in a season by winning each of the next two weeks. Venegas finished fifth.

Now that the Inland Empire has its own minor-league team, it will host tryouts for anyone interested in filling one of the Ontario Reign’s final 12 roster spots. Not that all 12 will be taken – “winners” of the tryout will only receive an invitation to training camp – and you can expect experienced players from around the country to attend. But don’t let that keep you from at least circling your calendars: September 27 and 28 at Center Ice Arena in Ontario.
