Stadium holds 100,000. It won't sell out and there are plenty of good seats on race day. Even Feld can't inflate the attendance number to make it look half

Best Christmas present ever in 1972. After getting my ass waxed by the Mission Honda boys (Jeff Ward & Brad Dutoit) at the first Florida Winternationals (now the Mini O's) in November on the then unknown XR75 (Lyle Dutoit actually flew the bike to ... more »

Turn it into a Hillbilly Yamaha. Just paint it flat black and call it good.

Daytona does not have an association with Feld other than being on the same schedule. Feld does not promote the Daytona SX. There are 16 Feld promoted SX races and Daytona makes the 17th race in the schedule. That's why you see Honda instead of Monster ... more »

Terry tells a great story of one of his visits to Roger's place involving some adult beverages and firing up one of the old factory scoots with an open stinger pipe at 11 PM one Saturday night out in Roger's garage. Bet that made the neighbors

Plastics are easy to find. Nightmare Racing has nice gloss finish plastic for your bike. And pretty much any Kawi from the 70s to late 80s. He can also help you find some of the other stuff you may need.

Reply to “Local” Pro strategy 6/29/2019 8:59 PM

You could do it in the 70's & early 80's. A LOT of the West Coast guys never chased the "National" dream because they could race at least 4 times a week in SoCal, bikes were cheap/free, and the hop up shops were flush with sponsorships. For that ... more »

Doesn't work in the high humidity of Florida. The additional water acts as a barrier layer and holds the heat in unless there is wind blowing to make it evaporate. Once you're standing still in the humidity, you get hotter. The ice bath works but you ... more »

Sunshine Speedway was flat. It had great Nationals in the 70s & 80's. Orlando Sports Stadium was flat. It had great Trans-AMA races in the 70's. Daytona SX is flat. It is outdoor national rough when they allow the sand to be the primary surface. ... more »

Reply to Old school tires ... the best? 6/14/2019 7:08 PM

If I could still buy the 2 ply Metzler MultiCross front, I would put it on every bike I own. Most predictable front tire I've ever used.

Ezra was a local 60 rider when I lived in Tallahassee during the early 80's. Rode out of the same shop that I rode for. His Dad, Ronnie, was a big guy who also had an 81 RM465 like mine. It wasn't uncommon for them to show up at the track hauling both ... more »
