"Getting around McLaughlin and Cooley proved difficult. After maybe eight laps running nose to tail, I squeezed past Steve on the inside into Turn 4 and held second all the way to the start/finish straight. There Wes pulled away slightly, but I knew the 905 could catch him in the Turn 2-3-4 stretch. I planned to do to Wes what I had just done to Steve. The race was almost over, but when the white flag should have appeared, it didn't. To my utter surprise, we got the checkers! I found out later the race was being run under international Formula 750 rules, with no white flag. Cooley won and I finished second, riding a bike that was easily the class of the field. One consolation was that Dale and I knew just how good the 905 was. Just wait until next time!"
