There was this Texas rider from ABA Tex- 5 district
where he ws #1 a couple of years in the late 70's, early 80's.
His name was Harold Roy, but he was know as Boogie Roy or Boog Roy.
He lived in San Diego around 1978, then in 79' he moved to Texas.
He was very fast! Used to rule his class in San Diego BMX racing at Rancho and Lakeside.
I've only known of two people who remember him.
He got a write up in Minicycle BMX Action Magazine or Super BMX Magazine
There is an article on Boog Roy in "Super BMX" October 1981. Right next to the article about me.
Sorry I don't have the Whole Article. The article said he was from Bishop, Tx
He was in Texas - 5. As I recall, that was the Coast area. B.A. am I right?
EDIT: BTW B.A. I wasn't able to be at the races, but I watched the Grands on go211.com and happened to see your self and your dad give that 34 Ford to Clayton John. It was good to see Clayton in person last year at the Mile High Nat's at Dacono BMX here in Colorado. Funny thing happened. He remembered me and my BMX racing family. I'd love to catch up with you sometime. We (my mom and I) have some funny memories of the infamous "Anderson Winnebago" and the Texas tours we did together (as a clan - Larry, B.A., B.R. and more.) after the Redline Summer Nationals in Amarillo. Those were some good times.
