Drag Racing, the Summer of 1958
On a tenth and a half mile section of the VIR, 
Virginia International Raceway, near Milton NC.

GRUDGE MATCH

That's Me at the Finish Line on my Trusty 650 cc BSA Rocket, Beating the Local Harley Dealer, Ed Guill, on his 45 cu in. Fueled Sportster.

That same day I cleaned a 61 cu in. Vincent Black Shadow, and Fred Leggett's (Jimmy Scearce tuned) Blue Corvette.

I had recently installed a new bottom-end bearing and only had 250 miles on it. __DUMB!
