In regards to Rockwoods' Finish Line column of March 30. it sounds as though Cliff Guild and the Baltimore Triumph crew were responsible for the entire Triumph factory effort and Hammer finally finishing a Daytona race; NOT SO! Hammer, Mulder and Romero rode the Johnson motors rigs which were maintained by Al Stucky, Pat Owens and Jack Wilson. It was through their efforts that Hammer not only was a finisher but also qualified faster than any of the other Triumphs.

O ) I am a satisfied reader of Cycle News and I've read in recent issues of how badly TT Scrambles were run-or put on and the fact that too much beer was drank and not enough attention paid to the fact there was a race to be run. In regard to this - I run a 160 Honda #801 (novice) and a 650 Triumph #326 ( , ) d ' lilt ul nOVlce an I d e to congrat ate the promoting club handling the March 19, 1967 race at Prado Park - the 4 Aces.

Please feel free to print the photograph for I assure you that the exposure has now been cleared through highest levels; my whole trip was financed IllY the CIA. Flatheads forever! BYRON BLACK Fresno DIRTOIGGER5-AMA RIFT HEALED We wish to announce we are accepting the AMA's membership offer. Since May 25, 1966 we have been apart on many and varied points. Now, through some changes in their administration, the gap is closing. (l) Mr. Lin Kuchler, is no longer with the AMA and Mr. Berry his successor has shown a personal interest in our District and its problems, and has come out to meet with us - this is progress. (2) Pro Amateur riders are now allowed to ride sporting events. (3) The AMA has not insisted we drop our FIM and ACA affiliation, thereby showing democratic intent and insuring our annual Grand Prix rider entries (55 inquiries from Europe so far). We feel peaceful international co-existence is a good policy. (4) The idea of a Rep. trom our Sporting District to the National Congress is fully suPported and his expenses should be reimbursed. As long as the AMA continues to fulfill its promises, we will support them, however, we wish to be very clear that our sentiments and actions will he for the good of SOuthern Californias District 37, if ever a choice has to be made. The controversy we stimulated has, at some expense to our club, brought some good beginnings to AMA policies. The Striped Crusaders M.C. have graciously allowed us to co-sponosr their 1967 scheduled race dates. In closing, due to the tremendous turnout for our 1966 G.P. we would like to announce our November 11 & 12, 1967 International Moto Cross & G.P., will be an invitational event only.
