I'm not real surprised about Morehead winning but how about that Tom Morgan AND Dave Atherton!!!!

Hell, I'm 70 yrs. old & Dave Atherton was racing with me as an Expert back in the late 60's & early 70's.
I saw Tom Morgan ride & Whup Up On Um at the Ashland, Oh. 1/2 mi. once but don't know his age or background.

What happened to Joe Kopp & Garth Brow?????
I can almost guarantee you that something happened. Those two guys don't finish at the back of the pack unless something happens to them.

I'm sure we are all wanting to hear all of the sorted details from Chew, Mia, Willard, etc., etc. as soon as they get some sleep & a chance to post.

HI Royal....Garth was running up and near the front when he pulled off going into four...something let loose in the bike...not sure what. Im not sure what happened to Joe, it may have been at the starting line....just didn't get a good start. The track was a little narrow notch going in at places into the turns....HOLESHOT..HOLESHOT....HOLESHOT. Morehead and Dave A..had it nailed and Tom Morgan is one great shorttracker. Springsteen looked as fast as he always did in practice and his heat....till his primary bike seized up. His back-up bike wasn't as quick he felt....BUT...IT WAS STILL A NEAT DEAL!!!! CHEW
I told my Pap and Mame I was goin to the dirttrack to go flattrackin.ACTED LIKE THEY WAS GUT SHOT!Says SON,Make your life goes here,HEREs WHERE THE PEOPLES IS,FLATTRACK IS FULL OF SPEED AND DANGER.Mother Larcom I SAYS,FLATTRACK IS THE MARROW OF THE WORLD, BY GOSH,I WAS RIGHT!!! chew

Tom Morgan raced back in the late '70s and never quit. He was riding my old bike, '73 327 in a champion frame, almost as original as it was back then. He should have won last night, he caught Steve but ran out of laps. Oh Will, 45 Jarod Vanderkooi, was also on my Honda. A very memorable night for which I will always remember.

Tom was my pick to win all week, I would of almost bet the farm on it. I will bet the farm next year , he will be the 2014 winner.. Great job , great race , great turnout ! The only thing I can say negative about the whole event it is that the food vender ran out of buns, will pack sandwiches next year . Thanks , Johnny Bova for feeding me.

Just one more quick add on and I know it is being discussed in another topic on the side but it still bugs me, if you are going to run a DTX bike take OFF the stupid front fender.

Steve rode an incredible race on a 250. Was absolutely flawless. Garth was running second when it seems that a crank seal blew. Joe was in third at that point and took over second when Garth dropped out. With two laps left it seems he had an ignition failure. Joe running that 360 up to second with an old Pirelli tire on the front was amazing. Cant wait for next year as Hopper and I are already tearing bikes down getting ready for it. Thanks to Art the Dart and Team Kilroys as well as Mark Augie Augenstein and Mike Collier for all the help. Hopper and I didn't get much sleep the last two weeks as I we were doing the final preparation for this race. It is a very nerve racking thing preparing bikes for guys who can do anything with a bike. Cant wait for next year.

Trevor,

Thank you and Brian and the rest of the crew for everything you did to get Art's bikes ready, I can only imagine how nerve wracking it was! I wish I could have been there. From all that I am hearing, the fans, the crews, and racers in the pits really enjoyed watching these legends race the vintage Bultacos! :cheer:

You played a big part in making this happen! :cheer:

Thanks!

I just re-read what Trevor and I wrote, and it made me laugh. :)

Trevor wrote, "Hopper and I didn't get much sleep the last two weeks as we were doing the final preparation for this race. It is a very nerve racking thing preparing bikes for guys who can do anything with a bike."

He followed this up with, "Can't wait for next year." :lol:

I wrote, "I can only imagine how nerve wracking it was!"

I followed this with, "I wish I could have been there." :lol:

Each of us seem to be contradicting ourselves, but I am sincere and I am sure Trevor is too.

Flattrack racing is lots of work and worry, but oh so much fun! :cheer:
