Now , if we could just get the Sedalia mile and the Hallet AHRMA Nat back on the calendar ... Dusty
Dusty, I can't think of Sedalia without remembering that Salt Lake City's Chris Dreyer, #77, lost an arm there around 1970. He was really a top rider. I was on the track with him at the 1967 75 mile national at Carlsbad, CA, but he was disappearing in the distance ahead of me. Those old side-valve H-D KR-750s could really fly, whether on dirt or pavement, and he was a great rider. Ralph
Yeah , that was a really bad accident . One of our local racers ,Dave Burleigh , lost most of a foot at a track in Tulsa sometime around 1973 . I was in the USAF at the time , so not around , but he was a hero of mine . AND yes , those old KRs , and the preceding WRs, were amazingly fast , developed to the Nth degree . When AHRMA was being formed , Dick Mann lobbied against a flat track division because of the danger . Fortunately , the last I knew there have been no fatalities . The accident at Du Quion that took the life of Rodney Farris still gives me the shivers .
