Gordon Lunde just sent me the coolest printout of Blackhawk Farms track records from 1982. I remember all of the riders on this sheet (with the exception of the Sidecar pilots). I still see Jerry Holm about every year up at the Peoria TT, Jim Knipp is the guy who got me into road racing in the first place, Ed Key is probably one of the winningest club racers of all time, Mike Harlow was part of the Quester/Sullivan national endurance team and Bobby Goodin was a fast Texan – a predecessor to Doug Polen – who chased contingency money all over the country in the early 1980s. I know Knipp, Key, Goodwin and Holm were all WERA National champs, some of the others might have been as well. Check out the 1:19.8 lap time Goodwin did on a Suzuki GS1100. I’m betting it was a bone stocker to boot. I know Bob Meister held the track record in the early 1990s at 1:13.70 on a 1000cc Yamaha OW01/FZR1000. I don’t know where the current record stands.
