The party, technically known as the Rich Hansen Benefit Race, was held at Oakland Valley Race Park, a go-cart track located in Cuddebackville NY, on Halloween day. The rules were simple; you had to start with a bike that displaced no more than 150cc (four-stroke) or 65cc (two-stroke) in stock form. The four strokes had to be air-cooled singles, and the strokers were allowed to be liquid cooled. Other than that, modifications were unlimited: big bore kits, slicks, dual discs whatever you thought might help was allowed, in fact in encouraged, and some of those “150s” pulled as hard as my 600 Rotax. Other than that, the teams were limited to four riders each, the race was four hours long and there was one mandatory pit stop. Oh yeah, the buy-in was 200 bucks, preferably in cash.
