Thanks Linz, you have reminded me that an old fart is faster than me

On a serious note, I enjoyed reading and watching the pics. At some point it seems you raced Brena and barney

Keep the pics and stories coming please.

I didn't. But I wanted to. I was gonna spot 1/3 track and some condiments, too.

Correct, it is Ray, not Jerry. I typo'd a few things and that didn't get fixed.

Finally! Someone that thinks like I do!


Anyway, here's Cam Roos. According to my scribble on the back of this picture, I took this on September 25, 1988 at TWS (Texas World Speedway). This is T7, and Cam is on his Sam Yashamita Yamaha FZR400. Yashamita was an importer and the forerunner to MotoLiberty in the DFW area. Cam was a fast up and comer at the time, poised for national greatness. I believe he smoked the local talent handily this day. In 1989 Cam was paralyzed in race crash at, if I remember correctly, the Miami street race that was still being run at the time (a race similar to the long departed street course Austin Aquafest). I could be wrong about about when and where, though.

Cam still works at a dealership in Georgia, and, last year, 20 years after I took the picture, I contacted Cam and sent it to him. I warned him that it was a crappy picture, but he begged to differ and said he loved it.
