that is awesome!
: June 22-24 -- Union Grove, Wisconsin; Great
: Lakes Dragaway!
: I got to rub that horseshoe way back in
: 1973. I was given a personal tour of Evel's
: rig, by Evel, Mike Draper and Leroy Ratlif.
: When the rig was driven on the track for the
: jumps. I was in the trailer holding Evel's
: jump bike and wheelie bike so they wouldn't
: fall when the rig took a sharp right turn
: from the return road onto the track.
: My van was the 12th in a line of 13
: vehicles. Evel landed on the plywood on top
: of my van all 3 days. On one of the jumps,
: Evel's parachute popped out during a
: speedrun! Eve's new takeoff ramp cover was
: also stolen that weekend.
: All in all, it was quite an exciting weekend
: for a yound daredevil just starting out. I
: will always be grateful.
