Dave Ashley’s Uncle Tom got me motivated to off race when I was about 13. He’s the guy in my live that watered the seed I already had to race off road. This was about 1984. In 1988 I road ride XR’s with this to Cabo. I had a 500 and he was on a 350. The old coot was probably 60 and I was 17. It was July and hotter than the gates of hell on the east side. My parents and some friends chased down the highway. It was bold and stupid. But the old guy was cool. Any way he raced in the first couple of 1000’s.

So now I am looking for any info I can find on him. Like starting order or finishing results. I remember he raced Baja bug’s in 70 or 71. I have google searched but can not find anything.

Maybe @harleys dad has some info?
Thanks

Yeah. I didn’t think he would. The connection with landfield and fairway ford was made by Dave. Tom didn’t know Dick L. Tom was a total privateer.
Thanks for trying.
