New Pictures Recently Discovered

"Speaking of 1980s AMA races, here is what I have found. A guy down the street was a young reporter in the Loudon area in 1980. Not knowing anything about motorcycle races, he went with a photographer friend to the Loudon race. His friend set him up with a camera and a few pointers and said Good Luck. Well, what I have is 70+ pictures of that day. Some good, some fuzzy. There are a few side car shots of the #s 21, 44, 5,7,1,45,and 71. Some of Freddie Spencer, Rich Schlachter and Adamo`s bike in the water. Action shots and stuff."

In the background is Jimmy Adamo in the black T-shirt talking to Reno Leoni, who is wearing his trademark straw hat.
