Cool Stuff.  I always loved that track...  Westfield .. right?  Was it Tuesday night?  My parents would race home from work and we'd head over from NY.  I remembered they had that one burm/turn with a whoop(rolling jump) in the turn, Super almost tight 180 with high burm, and some killer jumps!!  I was able to hang around Shawn Texas that day of the Nationals.  A real nice guy.

Saw Hollywood on his pink Hutch, etc, etc... Man those guys could ride!!

Ever race at Roderdam (Tri-City), Rexford (old Tri-City ABA), Athens, Pleasant Valley, ..  well there's a few more and one in CT  (Darn - can't remember right now)

This is probably 1983 or so, at U.S.B.M.X. in Azusa, CA:

And this is probably 1984 or so at Coal Canyon in Yorba Linda, CA:

Yeah, Coal Canyon and Azusa were my favorite tracks.  I didn't race the Orange Y much back in the day because my dad hated the exit from the 55 south.  big_smile

I ride it (the Y) a lot now, though...

...well, I was riding it a lot.  I haven't been out since I got my street bike.  Heh.

EDIT: Here's a couple of other pics of me at Coal Canyon BITD:

Oh my god, how I wish I still had that Torker.  I think I gave it away when I got my Free Agent.  Stupid, stupid, stupid me.
