Flashback: January 1981
January 1981- Dad is all packed and ready for the World Championship Snowmobile Derby in Eagle River, Wisconsin.
While Mom's Buick Opel made it to the event in fine order, the new-to-Dad Yamaha 340 SRX blew a track even before the first heat- it had previously been trail rode and the damage went unnoticed.
He never made a main event race at Eagle River. This, along with his Manta entry the year prior were probably his best chances. His Manta was denied entry after he failed to produce a Nomex suit and a mercury switch in tech.
