Doug Olson, Rex Reason, Dave Cech, Jerry Jensen and I decided to visit the location of our Yankee Hill BMX track from 1976 and 1977. After our reunion and Hall of Fame and after the races were done on Sunday, we drove west of Lincoln to the old track. We walked the path from the starting hill, down the long first sraight. We walked the entire length of the track and although the trees have reclaimed much of the land, we could still make out many of the features including tires that still marked the track where we all raced our first BMX events. We stood togther where the starting gate once was, and where we remembered Dave's father Bernie Cech, who dropped the gate for us all those years ago.

I snapped the photos seen here in this gallery.
