Rock and Roll my brother! Absolutely I remember that! I miss those days indeed.

I continued until '08. The economy fell, relinquishing all of my sponsors, temptation got the better of me in life and I took a good hard fall.

Many things have happened that I would have never guessed would. So I am climbing the mountain once again and now looking to get involved with track days...….I still know which way the track goes

A quick story about fellow member and "has-been" racer @Damon Mon Wai,

Damon was a fast guy back in the day, and I think might have been a novice student of mine before he came into his own skills (Damon, remember when we met? My old tuner Mike from Bolt racing and I ran into you on the street?).

I was trailing Damon for a few laps and setting him up for a pass. This was back in '98 at Pacific, then SIR. I followed closely behind Damon into T-5 and as we transitioned for 6, Damon disappeared into a cloud of smoke from a ruptured oil line. I thought, "well, he's out of the way", and as that thought ran from my head, down I went from the spew onto the track surface, sliding on my back to the top of 6 and seeing three more riders coming in and doing the same thing I did. Aside from my rear tire leaving a nice skid mark across my face shield, all riders involved were uninjured.

Those were the days before the belly pan was required. And also in those days, we had grid qualifiers in the morning to determine grid position for the afternoon mains.....those were the days. Before the bus stop, we also went straight from T-9 onto the entire front straight before there was a wall down the side.....anyone remember when we pitted inside of turn 9??

Good story about the good ol' days! Damon has a cartoon from the program that Seige drew with him passing me on the outside and my eyes big. I remember pitting inside T9 and rolling out on the staging lanes. I was also in the race that caused the buss stop, Jim Bailey RIP. Did you ever race at Coos Bay? This is Tyler and me out front:

No sir, not at Coos Bay. I also was in that Jim Bailey race......I think, wasn't that a 750 race?? If it wasn't a 750 race then I was surely there that day. Another sad loss indeed.

That was not too long after the wall was put in down the straight.

I liked not having the wall, I ended up having to use the grass one race as my bike went over the seams coming onto the front and got a tank slapper so bad (never back off) I had to run wide into the grass. Doug Renfro came by me looking over at me as to thank me for relinquishing my position to him.

I think I actually have one of my lapping you Petey….back in '91 or '92 at Portland in T-9. I'll have to dig it up at work and send it to my home PC.

I do have a shot of Greg Bowens and uh, Ryan Seahurst I think his name is. They were on my ass race long but they stayed there
