MXA Trivia Round Eight - 8 - Old School - (not) BOB HANNAH

Recommended Posts

For some reason it seems you get more hits if Bob's name is in the title, we'll see.

Anyways,,,,,,,,

This awsome 1st corner shot that I have butchered and pasted together is from the December 1976 issue of MXA (sorry NOMADAK :cry:)

This is the St. Petersburg National 500 final race of the year. Who won the title? Who was second? :cry:

How many riders can you identify in this photo? I know 8 of them. Anyone know more? One's easy if you've been paying attention so far. :cry:

#3 is Kent Howerton, 15 is Semics, 24 is Bad Brad Lackey, I believe that is Steve Stackable on the Suzuki with the black helmet just to the left of Semics. Weinert is right behind Lackey. Karsmakers is on the Honda behind #661. Could 19 be Bill Grossi? I will rack my brain on the others.

I was at the National in St. Peters MO that year.

Semics won the last 3 Nationals including St. Petersburg and finished second to Howerton for the season.

:cry: Man I have been watching football and working in the yard and missed most of the trivia for the day.

In the future please enumerate your response in order to simplify things. :cry:

The rider you say is Stackable I thought was Billy or Bob Grossi. We could have to find a mediator. :cry:

So let's see, we have,

1) Semics #15 KX

2) Howerton #3 Husky

3) Lackey #24 Husky

4) Weinert green KX in back (There is a slim to none chance that this could be Terry Clark, as I think he was on the team then but not sure.)

5) Suzuki black helmet - Stackable or Grossi???

I've got 3 more and when you here one of them you will say DOH! :cry:

:cry:

I am still looking at the pictures.

I missed DiStefano with the orange helmet and the arrows on the pants.

661 may be Chuck Sun.

And I am still looking :cry:

Oh man, you got my DOH, Now Dee, I'm not so sure, you think? I'm almost thinking the black suzuki helmet is Grossi and the silver Suzuki Helmet Behind possible Dee is Stack (confused yet?) :cry:

6) Chuck Sun #661 Husky :cry:

This is giving me a headache,

1) Semics #15 KX

2) Howerton #3 Husky

3) Lackey #24 Husky

4) Weinert green KX in back (There is a slim to none chance that this could be Terry Clark, as I think he was on the team then but not sure.)

5) Suzuki black helmet - Stackable or Grossi???

and then

6)Tony D Suzuki, orange helmet

7)Chuck Sun #661

8)Gaylon Mosier with Green Shirt with yellow and yellow helmet.

I am pretty sure that is Stackable in the black helmet by his long hair.

Well now were getting somewhere.

Moiser? didn't have that one, I think you rite.

9) Right in front of him - Factory Honda Rich Eirstedt

10) John Savitski #19 Suzuki

I think you are right on stack. Maybe silver is a Grossi?

And that concludes tonight's issue of Johnny is addicted to TT. Goodnight.

That's cause he knew he was gonna win. Kent Howerton pulled the holeshot and roosted off to victory to claim his first 500cc title. :cry:
