Yes, your right. It is the 17 cars at Ascot, night jump July 1969, got my jumps mixed up. I just sent Bob the article and photo. Easy to see itís the same jump, front end high and crossed up a bit. Check out the article. Now the 13 car rear tire blow out was April of 1970 at the Seattle International Race way. The ramps were moved off the grass and Evel jumped 18 cars on the second jump. I believe the 18 car jump is that real quick clip with the crowd swarming the landing ramp after. I just checked an old video, when Bubba jumped the 20 in Boston, speed vision covered the jump, they talk about Evel and his 19 car record. They show a clip of Evel jumping, but heís jumping the Eagle. Hard to see how many cars but itís a good size jump. Anyone remember or have the footage?
