If it doesn't, it's your fault, since you made me sell you my old trials bike.

I guess if you don't like it, I'd consider swapping.

Hahaha, no. Somebody went and built a house on the start chute.

I'm not from here and haven't lived here very long so I never saw it/raced it when it was operating.

From the Forgotten Tracks website...

"Ran from the early 70s to late 80s. hosted a YAMA national in 1974. i saw Gene Mckay on Noguchi yamahas consistantly beat Jeff Ward on his blue xr75s. Tammy Kirk of dalton Ga. was also racing.Had she gone mx instead of dirt track she would have definitely given mercedes gonzales a run for her money. In 1985 wendy oaks held an lorettas amatuer regional here are some the A riders listed. mike larocco, greg bowen, donny schmit, rich halstead along with several from oh, in, wi,mn,mi. Track is pretty much pasture land now."

No. I offered to let him race one of my bikes in a local HS last fall and couldn't get him to bite.
.
He's into stock cars and has been for a long time. I don't think Johnny has raced dirt bikes since mid 80's. He has a business of building and working on stock cars. He has had some decent success on the local and regional level with cars and did some ASA racing when that series was around.

Johnny would go vintage MX'ing but he's afraid of 2whlrcr whipping his ass in front of the legend's fans.

Yep, I just have to wait for my competition to grow old and slow and then maybe I've got a chance.

i would like to go in that general direction too, assumming i can get out of bed early enough ...

(+5 hours for me) over red rock lake and south of oskaloosa http://tinyurl.com/d6ku9yn ( about 20 miles of gravel)
i don't have a gps yet, so it probably would change if i go this way.

or maybe follow some county roads over http://tinyurl.com/cxpbgsa
