That would be cool. I have no photographic evidence of my own.

I was there racing a micro sprint for a freind, and just happened to have my bike with me. Totally a spur of the moment deal.

Looks like you did fine though!

Yes the Junkyard 250 class..meant for 250 trail bikes basically early non RFVC honda XL/XR 250 as well as Yamaha XT/TT 250's and just about any 4 stroke 250 with out any hi performance work and no race tires...we modeled this bike after that class. i was trying to talk some guys around here into building a few..if we could get 4-8 bikes to show up regularly i could get the class on the schedule.
