AMA 500cc National Championship, Carlsbad, Ca. I was relegated to the "consolation" race for some forgotten reason but I was determined to make the main motos. I think they only took 3 racers from the consolation so I decided I'd play it safe and win the race! Pretty cool actually. When my 5 year old son grows up I can bore him with the details of how I, uh, won a race at Carlsbad.
