They stopped allowing ATC`s for the 88 season(even though Sal assued they woulld let us race in 88 on a ATC). About a month before the PArker 400 in 88, we were told we couldnt race the 3 wheeler. Spent all that money prepping the bike! Ended up buying to new Honda 4Ttrax for the race. We won the open ATC in 86 with the Mancha team. I think Ronnie won it in 87.If I am not mistaken, the last SCORE Champion on an Open ATC was Ronny Wilson and Brett King. Think it was 1988 or 1989. I am away from my archives, or I would have some photos to share.
Since this thread has seemed to deviate from the "racing SCORE" element I'll throw in one....
This shot was taken at Loretta Lynn's Dude Ranch in Tennessee sometime around 1986 I believe.
Was the year Marty Hart DESTROYED the entire 250cc pro field by such a margin it looked like he was racing with the amateur class!!!
I've got a ton of short course photos and some ADRA desert races on 3-wheelers but only quad for SCORE.
Man this thread brought back memories!!!
Let's see some ADRA pics Ben, throw in one of your old xmass cards while your at it!
Some of the 3 wheeler racers I remember from the good old days, a bunch made it into cars:
Fred Wing, Charlie Lampson, Steve Wright, Tracy Dickson, Dean Sundahl, Waxeldorfer, Brett/Ronny, Paul Keller, Jim Covey, Mike Hector, Steve Melton, Craig Corda, Dana Nordin, Steve Campbell, John Knudsen, Bernie Carr, Hanberg, Denny Wolf... The days when the 250R, Tri Z and Tecate ruled the 3 wheeler world and B to V was the "Bike" race you had to do. To race an "ATC" in the dez at a decent speed you had to be a good technical rider, Quads made it so anyone with balls could go fast.
Jeff - What you didn't keep any of those "holiday cards"[PC]!!! I was sure you would have those on your wall!! Good reason to take you off the list!!!
ADRA shot from '83. How fun was it to have a plastic gas tank mounted off the front forks with a cap that liked to spew fuel in your face!!!
These were the only ones I had at a arms reach. I'll have to go digging now. Have some cool shots on the 3 wheelers out riding at the Marana "track" and in the wash off Swann - maybe Rillito?
