Don Castro 1975*


What is there not to love about this photo? Don Castro on one of the most bad-tempered flat trackers of all time, the 750 H2, and he's looking like one of the MC5. His boots are lace-ups, keep em nice an' tight. He's wearing his old Yam leathers. In the background is some Dodge Hauler. My wife's got a pink ringer T-shirt just like Don's. And look at the fella taking a drink of Tab from his cup. White jeans and a windcheater - a great look. I could look at this photo all day.

Just for people new to blogs, if you click a label at the bottom, like Don's name. It'll take you to all Sideburn's other posts relating to Don. Apologies for teaching any grandmothers to suck eggs.

We don't know where he got it from.

Hey that's me on the left in the OshKosh B'Gosh dungarees!
(later made famous by Jesse Duke).
I did Don's hair, & some of the other racers too.
His favorite was a scalp massage with Mizani oil.

I've never told a soul until today, but I secretly kept
a lock of each riders hair in a silver keepsafe.

You are an enigma. And a welcome edition to the Sideburn blog. Don't leave us. Ever. Have you ever seen 'Play Misty For Me'?
