Lima Half Mile Practice June 2006
These are just a few shots I clicked off in practice at the
AMA Flat Track Grand National at Lima, OH., in June of
'06. Various riders in the shots are:
#1 Chris Carr, 7-time AMA Grand National Champion
#9 Jay 'Springer' Springsteen, 3-time AMA Grand National Champion
#21 Jared Mees
#11 Brian Bigelow
#20 Johnny Murphree
All of these guys have won and contended for race wins and
championships over the course of the last 6-7 to 30-plus years
on the AMA circuit. This particular track is a dirt/pea gravel
track that will get you hurt standing along the fence and getting
pelted by the pea gravel.
Great track, always a great race, and one of the best managed/promoted/attended
of all races other then what are hosted by IMDA in the state of Illinois.
If you get a chance to check it out, they always run the last Saturday of June,
it is a great event and a super eye-opener for the sport of flat track. Dig it!
Oh, and remember, go fast, and turn left......
