No off-cambers? Maybe it's just the overhead that makes it look like that? DC Racer X

Oh, and I could still do the triple behind the starting gate at High Point... Think about that! DC Racer X

TrueSpode, I don't know who this man's wife is, or how many ATV GNCC pictures we actually post on Racer X. I will post the video that they based the disqualification off of. That's all. Steve 396, maybe look at the video here when it loads and you might ... more »

First of all, I wasn't there, but I have talked to some folks who were. This was a racing incident and the man apparently did not know the rider that ran up on him was a girl, let along her age, when he lost his temper. Both were wearing full race gear, ... more »

HuskyEd, those pics are from 1976 - maybe 1980? That's back when there was maybe two SX races in SoCal and the Saddleback National. There's a whole bunch more now! But that's the kind of crowd we hope to build with the new USGP. Coincidentally, I got ... more »
