Do a search for "silverdome" and "Michigan", there have been a couple great threads with lots of good stuff.

This is me leading my moto, Pontiac Silverdome, 1981.

I was there. Was a great trip. All the way there in the back of my dads pick up. We did have a topper but it still got a little chilly.
I did pretty well in the race, until, going into the first turn, I was in second making a move, the guy in first shut the door and stuck a pedal in my front wheel. You know how that went. I had to hurry to find another wheel to make my next class.
I wish I had some pics.
