    Mooch, where'd you get that sign-up sheet? That's cool!
    I got to ride at HH on and off over four decades. Enjoyed the mid/late 80's the best. Mulch still went down and good group in the vet class.
    Many Ohio tracks hosted pro MX in the 70's. I'll add Adelphi/Laurelville, a regular District 11 stop back then.

    Too me, that is impressive in that Ohio was a hot bed for MX in America in the beginning.
    It would be cool to see some more vintage stuff from them as well.
    Marion County International Raceway held a Trans-Am in '71(?) and there was a track at Hilsboro that held a National.
    If I remember correctly that's where the famous Tony D and Jimmy Weinert picture was taken.

    Happy Hallow was in Hillisboro. Still a track and trails there, but to my knowledge they do not hold any races there. I was by there about two years ago. Last time I was there was back in the 80s.

    My all time favorite track-I remember going there in 97 to watch the vintage national and was pretty jazzed the old clock tower was still there. Dick K would put mulch/wood chips down on the track, Nothing beat racing there in the 80's

    I like that this one shows some of the obstacles they had in the track back then that didn't exactly give the track good flow
