Might have been for motorcycle sport quarterly, but I will encourage you by saying that I deep six nothing intentionally and there is about a 75% chance they do. I think I remember the headlines for the story being done with hand lettering and with at least one shot from dead above you.
Thanks for the hopeful word! I'm completely certain it was Dragebike Magazine. I recall the hand lettering for the banner. I also recall the front page: it was a dual reverse image of TC or some top fueler of the day. It was made to look like he was racing off the page and right into your lap! Pretty cool for the day!
