That brings back some good memories. At one point that was the only moto race I had on tape back then.

I don't have to be as smart as you hope to be some day anymore.

What's even funnier is didn't Chadley (Pederson) just race the last AMA National, did he qualify ?? he has to be 40 by now ?? My pops is very proud of those races, I* still have to get all our footage to BobbyM !

Now that was COOL. They were on the gas, a youngster like me forgets how fast those pros were when they were on 85s. Thanks for posting!

Hi Sondy, I didn't know you went that far back.....could you fill me/us in a little about your racetrack background? I kind of understood that you were/are a player. I never got to race Carlsbad. I finally made Glen Helen a few years back.

Sometimes, Gravity just sucks.

I've always had a fascination with Carlsbad, never been there but a friend of mine went to the US in 85 to race the word mini GP and he also raced at Carlsbad. For some reason I was bummed to hear that it closed and the land developed.

Sondy, sounds like you have a lot of footage from that era. Would you happen to have or know anyone who might have any footage of the ROC from the World Mini GP in 1985?

Really cool stuff!! I grew up racing mini's at Barona Oaks back in the 80's! I remember Mike Craig's Dad was the president of the track at that time, and my mom was the secretary. Tommy Clowers was the hotshot at the time, and we were always rooting for him to win at the big CMC race's, I really looked up to him. I'm glad to see he went on to have a successful career...

That video was awesome....I remember watching those as a kid wishing I was 1/2as fast as those kids. Another one I looked up to was the local kid Eddie Hicks. Thats when I lived in Palmdale, Ca.

I wish they had the interview with Emig after the race.

Just because you have a new stupid thought does'nt mean you should start a new thread letting us know about it!
