On a thread in Superbikeplanet( motorcycle racing forum) I read a story about a 1970's racer named Walt Foster who rode for Neil Winston's Wacky Racers Racing Team from Minneapolis. Is This former ATA president Neil Winston??
SS--When you say campaign, do you mean he owned/ran the team or actually raced them? I have seen Neil in person before and just don't picture him going sideways around the track dragging a foot. Of course alot of activities change as we age.
Ron-- I did a search for Neil Winston and was amazed at how many i could find. That was my point in my post. I clearly said "I can't answer your question".
Also, if i wish to post on every thread i will. You do not have to read my BS. As for your not coming down on me, what would you call that?? Calling someone a "FOOL" is not a positive post. Maybe you should sit back as well and enjoy. Personally i think my post was nothing more than a Question. Your intitled to your opinion as i am also. No hard feelings on my part but i certainly don't need a forum posting lesson today. Take Care and enjoy or not.
Bryan--I agree. I had a GSXR 750 for several years when i was younger. I never had the balls to lay one over like that in the curves especially at the speeds they do it. I believe flat tracking is like this pic though. Is that you in the pic on your post??---Matt
Oh I wasn't referring to what I posted a flat tracking or anything Neil might have done. But it is really cool to listen to the good ole boys back in the day stories. If it has two wheels, goes fast I like it.
The first time I met Neil.....and I'm sure he wont remember, was in Allen Lehman's trailer at the Silver Dollar Gun club in Odessa, FL. in 1986. I knew he was a motorcyclist by the calf high, lace-up motorcycling boots.
I'm not sure but I believe, by the questions he was asking, that he was just then getting into trapshooting. If I remember correctly, he was in FL for some motorcycling races. We were both skinnier and prettier back then.
Neil owned 3 750XRs. Before H D Neil had Triumps. Neil had many bikes and riders. I am sure Neil named his team Winston Racers as he advertised that in the Minnesota state shoot program years ago. I met one of Neils riders at the Spring Grand back in the 80S but can't remember his name.
I use to go to the races at DuQuoin, IL every year. Those guys have some serious balls let me tell ya. It appears to me to be a controlled slide around the whole track. I had know idea they reached speeds that fast though. Impressive.
