Bengt, 1969 at the Pepperell, Massachusetts circuit. It’s interesting to see the lack of logos (or the clean look), the Jofa, the big Hooska 400 and the classic style of a World Champion.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

Michigan 2-day Qualifier 1988. I’m racing a modified RM 250 and can recall the endless sand, whoops through the woods and the fact that I was dragging the caboose by the end of day two. It was also a great time of camaraderie traveling with Charles Halcomb, Randy Hawkins, meeting Kurt Hough and the Texan Todd Harris. Good times on the trail!
