that's me on the right of the gate, #157, about to take the biggest upset of my young career. from left are: JJ Longton, SE Racing, unknown rider, Randy Chamberlain, Dan Rahrer, Willy Marlowe.
probably the first moto at a double-points race at Countryside BMX in Escanaba, Michigan. went on to win the main against the factory guy and the #1 ranked rider. i got a sponsorship right after this. good times.
manual gate, no lights, track owner Ron Sundstrom doing the call. that's how we rolled in 1980, yo.
