Im looking for old friends who raced with me from 1978 thru 1986 in Connecticut!!! I go all the way back to the very first organized track in Ct, Dose anyone know what track that was???

My parents and I even built and ran a track at the famed Lime Rock Park. I miss you guys!! And all those pit tootsies!!!





Sean,

I raced with you at several tracks in CT. My race number was 2001 and rode a 1978 original Kuwahara. After the states I was number 6, Paul Kruger was number 2, and Mike Patrick was number 7. Sadly, Mike Patrick passed away last week. I have just logged on to spread the awful news.

I am also looking through old photo albums and may have several pictures of the Wilton, West Haven, and Milford tracks from 1981-3.

There was a BMX track in Milford Connecticut?

There were 2 tracks in Milford. The first one was at Milford Riders. That had to be around 82 i think. The second one was at Eisenhour(sp?) Park. I think John Rodie was involved with this. 88 or later maybe?
