Your Collection: HOF Photo Collection

This weeks collection comes from Chris Westall.

I was recently cleaning out a closet full of old photos and ran across some I took at the 1981 Trans-USA at Rio Bravo and 1982 USGP at Carlsbad and realized these were great shots of future Hall of Famers.  Good stuff here- Hannah running "100" the year after his waterski accident, Lackey the year he won the world title, Magoo on a LOP Honda with three digits, Bailey on a Kawi, RJ "getting rad" on a YZ (one-handers were still kind of a big deal then... laughable today); a young Wardy absolutely flying on a KX-500, as well as O'Show, Marty Smith (on a Suzuki), Broc Glover, Bomber, and Mike Bell.

The last shot is a nod to future HOFer (and recently retired) Kevin Windham from his big win in 1999 at the 250 USGP at Budds Creek- I was one of the 12 people that was actually there to witness it  ;-).  BTW, I got to see Kevin in his last "great" race- The 2012 Houston SX qualifier where he battled back and forth with Stewart the whole race before that big get-off that ended his season. If you don't remember it, YouTube it- it was a classic battle (and crash). See you in the Hall, Kevin!
