Dirt Track Sweepstakes Winner!
Following up on an email sent to thousands of motorcyclists, Larry Price took a few minutes to fill in his information and entered to win four tickets to the two upcoming Springfield Miles and Short Track races plus tickets to the National Motorcycle Museum. When the entries were gathered and a winner drawn, Larry’s entry was chosen. “This is pretty cool! I’ve never been to a dirt track race. This will be my first time!” Larry will take a few friends along with him to share in his winnings which include pit passes for each race.
Larry lives in St Charles, Missouri. When asked for a little background on his riding, he said he started at 14 on a little Benelli and has ridden for almost 45 years. He’s now on a late model Harley-Davidson Fat Boy and a Road King but also is a fan of Sportsters. Experiences with the Benelli when he was young included performing the most famous scene from the Great Escape. “I kept working on the ramp, to get it high enough, and eventually made it.” Yes, though not quite as high, Larry says he and the little Benelli cleared the farm fence topped with barbed wire much as Bud Ekins had done, doing the stunt riding for Steve McQueen who starred in the film.
The Springfield Mile is a double header event this year. Getting to watch all that racing and making a trip to the Museum for a tour led by National Motorcycle Museum President, and Founder of J&P Cycles, John Parham, will be the next experiences in Larry Price’s personal motorcycling history.
The National Motorcycle Museum offers thanks to everyone who took the time to enter and to Dirt Track Sweepstakes sponsors the Illinois Motorcycle Dealers Association, IMDA, and J&P Cycles, Anamosa, Iowa.
