Andy Fenwick was renowned for his endurance racing achievements, primarily with the Human Race Team. Fenwick was lesser known for his sprint racing prowess, yet the Neenah, Wisconsin rider turned in some amazing rides, especially in 1988 aboard the Dave Zupan-tuned Yamaha FZR1000. Late in ’88 Fenwick showed up at a WERA Regional at Blackhawk Farms and set a track record. A month later Fenwick proved that his speed at Blackhawk was no fluke. In a WERA F-USA regional event at Grattan Raceway in September, Fenwick got a bad start then started working his way to the front. In the process he passed Paul Bray and Fritz Kling. Fenwick then reeled in race leader Scott Russell in the closing laps and nearly caught him at the checkered flag. In the process Fenwick set a new track record of 1:25:05 beating Kurt Hall’s mark (1:25:32) that was set on the same HRT FZR1000 earlier that summer.
