Found some old photos - track racing

Was at my parents house over the weekend and found some old photos that I decided to scan. Those helmets had to be incredibly hot.

....and don't forget our Velodrome at the National Sports Center in Blaine,MN!

A great place to spend a Thursday night in the summer.
