John Kocinski rides Perris Speedway

John Kocinski knows how to have fun. One of his passions is this 30 year old Flat Track air-cooled Honda CR which he rides with absolute wild abandon. The bike is perfect,just what a Dirt Tracker should be. All wheels and motor, wrapped up in nickel plate and fancy paint. Kocinski is nibbling away at the existing track record held by Jimmy Wood on a 450. John is one of the fasted guys ever to circulate at Perris on this 250. His technique is something to see. John diamonds the track with a highly committed backed in slide to the pivot point where he grabs a handful and deals with what comes next,usually a beautiful power slide to the other end of the track. World Champs are on another level.
