1970 Trans Am Championship, last race of the year at Riverside, Calif. Parnelli Jones has already won the championship in his Boss 302 Mustang but wants to win at his home track in front of fans and family. He gets taken out by two back markers that he was lapping and gets knocked off the track and into the weeds. When he comes back on the track, he is in last place in a bent and ill-handling car that wouldn't turn right. He had to jump the curbs to get it to go right. Jones catches and passes his team mate Geo. Follmer on the last lap to take the victory. Parnelli Jones who has won in just about every form of four wheel motor sport
( except Formula 1,Colin Chapman wanted him to join Lotus but he did not want to be the No.2 driver to his buddy Jim Clark) ,says this was his greatest race.
Pro Singles New Yorker, Ryan Wells raced hard all season and came up one point behind eventual No.1 Plate winner Wyatt Maguire. Ryan is a highly talented young rider who double dutied throughout the season on both the Waters Auto Body Racing CRF 450R Honda and their big and bad KTM LC8 950.
I am not sure how the new rules effect the KTM but I look for big things from Ryan in 2014

Bonsey can get the job done and when Jake Johnson split from the Zanotti Team two thirds of the way through the season, Dave Zanotti got the Two Time National Winner to twist the throttle on his beautiful and fast XR 750s. First race Santa Rosa was going great until Stevie almost left his left foot and knee behind in extra thick section of cushion. This meant he had to race at Pomona with a substantial brace to keep his knee from getting even more torn up before he had the knee operated on, right after the SoCal race.
Pomona didn't go Stevie's way as not his knee, but the bike blew up in the Main after a gallant effort by the injured rider. Now comes word that Kenny Coolbeth with Dave Atherton as head tuner, will be teaming up with Dave Zanotti and crew for an attack on the 2014 No.1 plate. Hopefully Bonsey can end up on a competitive bike with another ace tuner. This young man has proven he is a winner and he deserves some really decent equipment to compete on.
