AHRMA race quotes from Daytona International Speedway - March 5, 2002

Classic 60s
Josef Brenner (No.529 BSA Gold Star) - "After yesterday's close second it was good to get a win. I looked back and had a guy challenging me that I never saw before so I decided to really put my head down in the infield and try to get away."

Sportsman 500
Tim Joyce (No. 309 1973 Triumph 500) - "I was really late getting the motor together this year. We had a good motor and at the last minute had to put an old one in there. I can't believe I finally won one after all these years."

Formula 500
Christopher Spargo (No. 912 1976 Yamaha 400) - "I got a little farther back (behind Richard Merhar) on that last lap than I should have. I got caught behind a lapped rider, but luckily I was able to draft back into the lead."

Sportsman 750
Mark Nadelkov (No. 871 1972 Yamaha 650) - "I can't believe I won at Daytona! I saw two crashes in front of me and that opened it up. I don't think I could have caught Jesse (Morris). I just got lucky that his bike had some problems."

Jess Morris (No. 295 1968 Triumph 750) - "The bike turned into a one speed and I had to nurse it home. I was surprised I was able to pull all the way to redline on the banking after chugging out of the turns stuck in fifth. There was no way I could stay out front once that happened."

Formula Vintage
Dave Rosno (No. 970 1969 Honda CR750) - "On the restart the bike bucked on me and died. The tires were a little cold on that first lap since I didn't have a warm-up. I guess I got lucky today. I had all this nervous engery built up and I used that on the track. It's great to finally get up here and win this thing."

On racing against legends Gary Nixon and Gary Fisher

"I'd heard of them before -- I mean I'd read about them in books. It's a real honor being on the same track with them."
