I went many years. John Finger owned that place for a long time, He had a two rotor Mazda powered skateboard of a car with enough wings to fit on a sprint car. He only had one other man give him a hard time UNTIL John Buffum showed up with his factory Audi Quarttro group C rally car. The car, the driver,INSANE . That weekend was unforgettable.

Dude, I was there!!

Mike Green was his nemesis; and Jerry Kreft in the Bandit was fast as hell!

Hans Stuck, Walter Rohrl, John Buffum, and another driver; can't remember, maybe Hurley.

We always sat in the S curves after 7 or 8, past the announcers booth. I remember the Quattro coming through there with three tires in the air and the one on the ground was smoking! I've never seen a car abuse pavement like that thing!

I'd love to chat about the race some time!
