It was a DRAGBIKE! race in Marion Ohio in the mid 80's. We raced Sat. morning-and there must have been a car race that nite-because they threw us all out mi afternoon. Larry had tried to make a run but just popped and farted. Back at the official race hotel, all the racers are out on the balcony drinkin'beers + bench racing. We see Larry pull his 66 Chevy van (remember traveling light)in the school parking lot behind the hotel. He unloaded the bike-worked on it a bit-then put it on the rollers+ firing the thing! That wasn't enough-he proceed to do some 100 ft launches in the driveway!!! Both engines pulling strong on nitro-what a sight !
