THE Gary Nixon Special from Donzilla at Metro Racing.

I saw Gary Nixon towards the end of his racing days, at Daytona going against a field that included Jay Springsteen.  It was one of the Triumph Bonneville Cup Challenge races and I cursed a little when Gary had to withdraw with ignition troubles.  Even at that stage in his semi-retired racing career lord was he fast.

From Don:

I know it’s been a while since I sent something in, so here’s my Nixon Tribute Street Tracker. NIxon was a personal friend that I miss dearly. I couldn’t think of a better way to honor him as to have something like this to ride around….Enjoy!!

Thanks Don and sorry for the delay (this arrived back in January), I’ve been off my game for quite a while now but I think I’m back in the saddle for the foreseeable future so please keep em coming..

  1. I saw Gary race many times at Santa Fe Speedway in Western Springs il. He always was a thrill for he challenged the whole field. He was a motorcycle enthusiast self financed., and a regular guy.
