Indy Mile on VBS
VBS TV (part of the the Vice magazine stable) is a online TV station aimed at mid-20s skinny jean wearers. They've posted a couple of quite slickly produced programmes introducing their viewers to dirt track. It was all filmed at the Indy Mile with some additional 1970s footage. Well worth watching, even if the editing goes all weird at the end of the race when Kenny Roberts, Kenny Coolbeth and, I think, JD Beach of the Pro Singles class take the flag.
You also see Brandon Robinson's hideous crash.
Thanks to Skooter Farm Dave for the tip-off.

UPDATE: As you'll see if you read the comments, Adam Wright helped produce these films. We think he means films rather that put the money up. Adam is the man behind the Road Course and Hauler photo books. He shot Richard of Mule Motorcycles for Sideburn 3 and Nicole Cheza and Shayna Texter for Sideburn 5. It seems as good a time as any to say SB5 is coming along nicely, but we still have plenty to get finished. March? Hopefully.
