Kil-Kare Raceway - Dayton, Ohio 1984
Man, I was skinny back then.  <:-O
Practice is over with...
After the first practice at Kil-Kare I was concerned that my Husky wasn't really that much faster than the 250Rs I was practicing against
. In my mind at that time I thought a 430cc 2-stroke would walk away from those "tiny" 250cc ATVs... Not true. What I didn't think about was Kil-Kare was a small, technical track with very little straightaways and tons of corners. I never got my husky out of 2nd gear the whole time and it gave an advantage to the lighter, better handling 250Rs. It was OK though, because I still placed well and it certainly turned a lot of heads.
