Happy Winners. 1st, 2nd and 3rd Classic 500/750 . Left, Joe Pape 3rd, Tom Ferguson Winner, Jim McMurren owner, tuner and ex-racer of the 350 H.D. Tom rides, Lenny Rodriguez, 2nd Place.
Tom had gapped them by the last laps not even noticing the flat rear tire ! They used an old Ascot trick and ran an old sun baked Pirelli which worked really well and proved the super stiff sidewall even stood up to zero air pressure.
This shot of Lenny is from an earlier meet when he was still No.1, going at it with his arch rival Joe.
