I just stumbled across these 4 videos. Awesome CBS footage of Joe Leonard, Dick Klamforth and Dick Mann. Even some onboard video. Not sure what year. I looked for Frank but didn't see him. Brought to you by Schlitz!

that's probably the same pavement that we rode on last time the event was held.

Would you rather see a little oil spot or a corner worker throwing sand all over the place to try and mop it up?

For whatever reason I've always liked looking at magazine stories and film footage of that place after having ridden there than any of the modern tracks now that I've been to.

That is crazy...vid 3/4 at 7:18. They appeared to have crashed right next/on a concrete culvert. Man, hats off to everyone who ever got on a bike and ran a race there!
