Sid Carlson AMA National # 73 to be inducted into the Trailblazers Hall of Fame

 Sid with his first Main Event Checkered Flag at Santa Fe Speedway, Chicago,ILL
This was a really big deal. A So Cal racer goes to race the Mid West circuit for the racing season with Santa Fe being the epicenter. The track was like Ascot, you may race the locals but beating them was a tall order.
Sid got it done and with it, validation as a bonafide flat track contender.
