    Hey, I remember her.

    I've managed to send her a 'friend request'. How do you 'like' someone's page on FB.

    I'm not a Facebook expert. Think she's got two pages.
    This is the one I found first...
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Carter-Alsop-Motorsports/157179274348166?v=info
    & here's the one you probably saw....

    Here's her story in '81 People magazine...

    I don't know why I never thought of her before now.
    She used to appear in stories in all the bike magazines back then.
    Just gorgeous.

    I remember three names of women road racers from the 70's and 80's: Carter Alsop, Nancy Delgado and Gina.

    I don't remember who was considered the fastest on the track. I do remember that one of them posed for Playboy...don't recall which one, though.
