Good news from Ukiah, California

This news from regular Sideburn contributor Randy K.

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
Here at the Astrodome TT, Eklund leads on his Yamaha TT500 - and goes on to win. Aldana in his skeleton leathers #10
