Interesting E-Mail on Saturday from Mike, He sent it to me thinking I might be an old friend of His, wrong Bob Johnson.
He raced back in the 70's as well and knew some of the Viewfinders. Anyone remember Him ??
His did mention Lou Ortoli (sp) and some others. He also mentioned He was 74 Years old.
I know some of the old timers don't get on this board, so it might not help Him find some of His old friends.
I guess He had some health problems over the years, but wants to make it out this weekend. I am not sure if He is looking to race or just visit.
I accidently deleted the E-mails so I don't have an address, Sorry  :-[
If You read this Mike, send me another E-mail and I will save the addy.
I believe He can post on the public board without being a member ?? Or does He have to register ??
Nice to hear from Him regardless wheather I knew Him or not.

I figured out how to get it outta the trash  :-[


"Hello Bob My Name is Mike Jenkins do you remember me I quit racing the desert in
or at the Barstow to vegas race when a Very close friend Larry Fitzenrouter (Spelling)
might be off a bit. Imthinking about coming out to the GranPrx in Oct. Do you think
there will be anyone who will remember me, I had a  Bypass Heart operation 2 years
ago and now Prostate cancer. Guess I need to get back out and remember the GOOD
old days. Im now living in Victorville in the desert so it not a long drive.
well perhaps I will see you soon.   OH I still have my old T Shirt from 74 Barstow to Vegas in storage I will see how it fits.             Mike Jenkins"


Second E-mail

"Thanks Bob I was sure I remember a Bob Johnson I will be 74 next month some
of the young guys were A C Backon, Mark & Forrest Wright, I was more in with
Ronnie Rondell & Roy Harrison the StuntsUnlimted people, How about" Brecker"
and his sons or Lou Ortely (Spelling). Anyway which day would be best SAT for
Legends/masters or Sunday for the Vets 30+ Thanks for any info Mike J."

His E-mail is

60s now.......I left Bikes and went to Off Shore boat racing then to a Boat company

Pure accident !!
Wrong Bob Johnson,
but I could not let his E-mails go unanswered and Mike sounds like he may still have some friends in the club.
It would be cool if they could meet again.

Hey Bob - you could let Mr. Jenkins know that Don Dahlquist and Neal Johnson come out to the GP's sometimes.  Last time I was there, Neal came, but Don was not able to make it.  You would have to check with Keith to see if he was there last year.  Both are really nice guys and should remember Mr. Jenkins.  Don was an original founding member (I believe).

I beleive he is refering to wrong way Bob Johnson a real character. Bob probably still comes out but doesn't always come around camp he camps by himself. He came out a couple of times a few years ago. Neil Johnson was out there last year as well as every year we have been in Ridgecrest.

Just got another message from Mike, looks like he won't make it, I won't go into the details, but I understand.
I was hoping he could come out and meet some of the newer members and bench race, but not likely going to happen.
