I just noticed you are from Orville and Placerville....I spent a couple of summers up at my uncles house staying with my cousins back in the 70s up near Orville. They lived near the Biggs/Gridley area out in a rice patty next to a plum orchard. We would go to Orville lake once in a while. I liked it up there.
And then my first big national race was the Hangtown National in '97....man I LOVE Placerville. Great place. After the amatuer day of racing on saturday we were sitting in our camp in the pits at the MX track and we could hear something racing nearby. We hoped in the truck with our heads out the window and followed the sound to the Placerville speedway and watched 1/4 midgets while drinking beer all night. National Pros on sunday and a blitz home sunday night...great week end.
it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission
