How does Ben Spies spend his off season? Here he’s posing for photos by French journalist David Folch in his new house in Dallas. In between sessions he throws a football with a friend.
Here’s a great video Yamaha just released of Kenny Roberts’ return ride at the Indy Mile this summer.
Here’s a classic press kit shot of Steve Morehead – aka The Findlay Flyer – broad sliding what looks to be a single-cylinder machine ahead of Terry Poovey at an unknown race. If this was a short track national it’s likely Santa Fe Park in the suburbs of Chicago, one of the few Short Track grand Nationals in the 1980s. The surface looks so smooth that it brings up another possibility that this is a paved track or indoor short track. I’m certain one of our numerous Grand National experts will look at this photo and recognize the track.
