Santa Fe, Springfield, Peoria, DuQuoin, Indy, and Columbus. Aldana, Mann, Parker, Graham, Scott, Nicky Hayden, Kenny Roberts and many more. Been there, met em all, and seen em all. Can't beat Midwest oval dirt racing.

Watched them race there in 1974. A bunch of us guys road our bikes down there right after graduating high school in Iowa City. That was a long ride in those days on those late 60's and early 70's bikes.

Nothing could be finer than puttin' you behinder

Slidin' sideways..

Nothing could be sweeter....



Is there anything as pretty as an XR hooked up, throwin' roost while the rider saws at the bars?



And JonnyB, I'm goin' down to negotiate the purchase of a CityX. I'm no longer a hater. Not that I ever really was.

As long as you keep feeding him and handing him beers, George is as charming as a person can get.

It was dangerous. One or two deaths per year on average. Maybe that was why I didn't try too hard on flat track but went all out in scrambles and other off-road stuff. My wife used to enjoy races, but finally refused to go. She said that every time she saw a race, she thought of the people we knew that had been killed.
