Trans AMA 1974, Sears Point. Number one Pierre Karsmakers won the National Open Class title in 1973 winning seven of 12 stand  rounds in the premier 500cc class on his way to the 1973 500cc National Championship. An AMA ruling would not let him compete for the National Championship in 1974 because he wasn’t an  U.S. citizen. This ridiculo rule was done away with the next year. Mark Kiel captured him battling with Bultaco’s Jim Pomeroy.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

The Alligator Enduro, Daytona Beach. Circa the early 90s, I do remember I was racing Randy Hawkins back up machine and it was fast, agile and equipped to do a much better job in the palmettos than its current pilot. The event was tight, a very sit-down woods event with tons of over hanging foliage that killed my stand up style. I felt like someone was playing the drums on my upper body with tire irons! Needless to say, my results were less than stellar.
