Good news from Ukiah, California
This group popped up out of nowhere. They (local car track promoter and local rider) hatched an idea to run a couple of practice sessions and they/we were amazed that 70 heretofore unknown flat track riders showed. Word has it that local MC shops have experienced a resurgance of parts business with new/old racers now building bikes.
It was a small dirt kart track and with someone's whiff of an idea, it now seems to be a real deal. As it stands now, a seven race series. in a small town best known for nice wines and restaurants.
Randy has written a great story on Steve Eklund and Mario Zanotti for Sideburn 13. G
