What a great day for racing. The conditions were perfect with the sun shining on a rain soaked course and that uniquely awesome fresh scent of the wet creosote bush lingering in the air.

Really cool mix of cars in this video Ragland was in a class by himself. The Class 6 stuff is awesome. I pretty sure we see Evan Evans at 9:13. The Class 3 battle between LeDuc/Jeep and White/ Chevy Blazer is wild. An underpowered long travel Jeep versus no travel leaf springs and V8 horsepower. Later that year Savage allowed White to go to the Ifs/ torsion bar set-up.

Again, great video of a transitional time in off road racing.

I must be getting old. All the people in the video look well,... Normal. Laugh out loud.

Any body else notice that? I don't see any flat billers, tatted out freaks or strippers.

Ha, the good old days.

I think all the flat billers were still in the "909" at this time.

Josh8, I think you're right. About the only strippers would have been in the Checkers pits. And flatbill hats ruined mullets, so...
