Here's one I didn't even know existed...



A friend just picked it up along with another Champion frame. It was former pro rider Dave Hanson's Husqvarna 360. I guess it once ran a 250 Mag engine, but has the 360 right now. I guess they didn't run all that great back in the day otherwise I'd probably have read or heard something about it.

Another I never saw until one year at Ashland was a Maico flat tracker. I guess certain engines either weren't really worked with or just didn't work.

Regardless, another interesting flat tracker from the past.

Interesting... I missed some time in flat track around 78-80 when I wasn't paying much attention. It is all just so cool.

Best part about Sammy tanner, he's at almost every flat track or speedway race in the area, I usually see him at least once a month at a track, more like 3 times a week during the speedway season.

The Elephant Ride was last weekend, I took the tracker.



My son and a couple friends came along too. It was a blast.
