Heikki Mikkola

Another flying fin and bad ass MXer.

He was a pretty big guy for a racer. I remember watching him at the USGP on Wide World of Sports.

Bubba Shobert. Too nice a guy to be a bad ass, but you wouldn't know that from his riding.

Bad Brad Lackey

Brad's a Bay Area local and because my sign shop was on the same street as his screenprinting shop we've become friends. He's the first and only American to win the 500cc MXGP. That was in '82. His mechanic, Steve Stasiefski, is one of the first guys to ever put upside-down forks on a race bike.

Privateer Dale Quarterley stuffing it under
Factory rider Fred Merkel in Turn 10 to take the lead at the
1984 Loudon Classic.His engine broke a bit later on.




Fast by Ferracci Ducati 851 ridden by Dale Quarterley.





Quote:
Dale Quarterley spent 13 years racing in the AMA obtaining four championships. In 1988 winning the AMA Battle of the Twins Title and two AMA Endurance Championships. Then in 1993, Quarterley placed 2nd in the AMA Superbike National Championship with team Mirage; including an AMA Superbike National win at Mid-Ohio earning him the title of most successful privateer in the history of AMA road racing.
... I think Mr Quarterley was the last privateer to
win an AMA National Superbike roadrace ...



... racing a Bimota DB1R ...



Quote:
The Ducati-based, Tamburini-styled DB1 has long been one of the most desirable of Bimotas, but the ultra-rare DB1R racer, built in conjunction with the Ducati factory, powered by a Ferracci-tuned 853cc engine is the most covetable of all.
Quarterley’s Ducati Connection on Superbike Planet ...
Quote:
Ducati continued the development of its machine
and by 1991 the result was the Ducati 888 and that machine
with Doug Polen at the controls began Ducati’s dominance in both
AMA and World Superbike. But that ascendency would not have been
possible without the groundwork laid by Quarterley’s
stint with Ferracci Ducati in the late 1980s.

Bad racers can be nice guys. Bubba was awesome. Like a few here injuries forced retirement.

If that is keeping anyone from posting somebody well then... my bad.

Brad was my first real MX moto hero. Total respect for him. Great pics Mike.

...and thanks to you he was barf's Tshirt printer until he retired.

I have a bunch more MX guys to add at some point.

Scott Parker 9 time champ

Scott Parker was the guy for a few years.
55 Mile wins.
35 1/2 mile wins.

When it came to sliding at speed he was one of the best ever.

He and Jay had some great battles.

Jay, Scott and Chris were the epic HD dudes for a long time.

AFM 6 Hour Endurance race,
Ontario Motor Speedway, 1979 ...

Quote:

Outside of AMA Road Race Nationals,
probably the most important road race in
America during the 1970s was the
American Federation of Motorcyclists (AFM) Six-Hour.

The AFM’s Six-Hour endurance race brought together
some of the top AMA road racing stars and very often
factory entries. You could say it was America’s version
of the Suzuka Eight-Hour. The race helped launch
Superbike racing in America and then later hosted
some of AMA Superbike’s elite teams ...

... The 1980 Six-Hour was perhaps the zenith of the event.
It pitted Freddie Spencer and Ron Pierce on a factory Honda CB750F-based Superbike,
against the Team Kawasaki’s David Aldana and Eddie Lawson
and the Yoshimura Suzuki of Wes Cooley and Rich Schlachter –
basically a full-on
team AMA Superbike race ...
