Thanks!! That makes sense! My Dad's uncle (Leroy Leavitt) became a Battalion Chief for Las Vegas Fire Department. I imagine my dad must have raced it on a Yamaha, and maybe the family came out to watch. I would have been 5, ha ha. I wonder if they had any other events? There are probably some photos somewhere. I'll check his trophy stash when I'm home next.

I sew the patch on my race suit just for giggles. (I'll have someone else do it, of course! :eek:)
