Found this cool vid on Dave Ashley I thought you'de all like . Me being a Ford guy I totally forgot that Dave drove for Jeep as well as him being in Fords . He still did the most stuff in his career with Ford though lol .
Lol yeah I posted the Simon and Simon one once too and think it was Zpoyly that posted the back of it . All those pics are from the Rough Rider website . As much as I wish I had the whole set of the the only one I actually have is Rob Mac's from 1999 .sb4pro you forgot the back side info ......Dave was super nice to fans and fellow racers.
Only in Baja bud only in BajaMike Bakholdin told me a story about Dick just the other day. He was there lead fab-mechanic from about 90 to the end.
Any way as the third hand story goes, Dick was racing his currier with James Garner and they had a horrible run in a early 70's Baja 500. I don't know the times but it had to be about 30 hours into the race and there both in the truck and just done. They are sure there hours back and just thirty for any thing at this point. Supposably one says to the other they could use a beer. And collectively they decide it's a good idea. Any way as they came into Ensendada they spotted a liqueur store and stopped for a beer. (Just picture James Garner and Dick filthy in race gear buying beers and what the guys in the store was thinking). Any way as they lean on the truck drinking the beers they watch another truck cruse by in the same class. At that point they relize they screwed the pooch. They jumped back in the truck and brought home secound.
