    Sure glad I was able to experience the hill back in the day. We had a saying, if you need a hair cut, stand-up when lefty comes by. I had some real good VHS video at one time of some of Lefty's passes and it unfortunately got overwritten :-(

    There is some footage on youtube from back there that is pretty decent and does a good job of showing just how crazy it was.

    but nothing will ever compare to being there. I can remember it perfectly. Low passes are awesome, but there is nothing like 8 low passes in a row!

    As I have posted before, back in the 80's I had a few chances to hangout on the old pylon 4. Lefty was qualifying one day and when he went by each time he was pretty flat (not a lot of bank) and he was so low he was followed by dust, twigs, small rocks, anything that could be sucked up behind him. Judges would look at each other and say "Call it?", "Naw, it's Lefty".

    A couple of my shots from 1988 or '89.



    This one is not my shot, I'm thinking its from the '70s. Found it in a pile of my dads stuff.

    My lucky 13.
    I miss Lefty and the wonderful sights and sounds of White Litnin. I remember one day I think in 85 where it was early, a little cold, and he was up doing his thing with no announcer, no music, just the purr of those allisons...
