Weird, the link won't work for me but when I googled who Chris Carr was the link came up and I posted it only to discover it was the same link. Dunno.

Edit: Well, crap! I tried several times to upload this URL and each time the finished product does not transfer from this site to that one. Spoiler: Chris was a very successful AMA flat track rider, winning the Grand National #1 plate seven times. Quite a shoe. Rode pavement too for those of you who are road race aficionados.

Slightly off topic:

In the mid 1980's the AMA changed the structure of the series to separate what had been a combined discipline into different championships for different types of bikes.

The Camel Pro Series (branding...sheesh!) was the chase for the number one plate and top riders had proficiency on dirt track including mile, half mile, short track and TT as well as road racing.

There are pros and cons to the change but I sure miss the old series.

I don't think it's the Chris Carr (prince of Peoria) we are thinking of. The cycle world article is talking about a guy who road raced and was instrumental in road racing schools and a sponsor of vintage road racing events. AMA Chris Carr was at the last few AFT events last year helping Cory Texter on his production twin bike. Looked very healthy.

It's not the same guy. I thought it was at first but after looking into it he was not the AMA dirt track racer. Still sad...
