FRIENDS Speedway racer and Vintage MX fan Doug Nicol has been responsible for keeping the Speedway race scene alive and well in Southern California. He helps run the Hagon Shocks junior Speedway racer program that provides speedway bikes to learn the craft on to promising youngsters at a Speedway race facility located in Riverside, CA. Doug also has a fine protege to take over for him, in the form of his young son, Broc Nichol, who has a promising Speedway career in front of him. A tip of the DIRT ILL visor to Doug and Broc for continuing a tra- ditional form of dirt track racing, where getting sideways, it always the name of the game. Carrie Jo Coombs & Scott Wallenberg The Coombs family is among the top reigning dynasties of off road sports families in America. From their late founder Dave Coombs Sr., who started the legendary original Black Water 100 endurance event, to Dave’s wife, Rita, and sons Davey Jr. and Timmy Coombs, as well as their daughter Carrie Jo, the Coombs fam- ily has made their mark on American motocross. Both professionally and in the Amateur ranks. Carrie Jo is the family lawyer, and helps mom Rita with the GNCC and Amateur Championship races at Loretta Lynn’s. Scott Wallenberg is the dynamic and affable advertising sales rep for Racer X magazine em- pire.
