Here are some points fOI riders' wives or girl friends-whether it be Sportsman event. or Professional races. First, when your rider is signing in, try to be as inconspicuous as possible, The promoter and official. have set rules at every track concerning whether the girls will be allowed in Ute pit area. At the majority of the track., they are not, but, arrangements have been . made for them. So, when the rider signs up, he will either a5Ic or be told of the SHORT TRACK by Sacramento Trackers M,C, at Sacramento NaU. Raceway, Cal. Practice and sign-ups at 6 p.m. first race at 8. SUNDAY. AUGUST 31st arrangements. There are a lot of girls who tend to get very angry if not allowed in the pits, and they voice their thoughts very loudly. This only tends to get your rider upset, and there are reasons why this rule is enforced. Secondly, when .itting in the stands, it'. not alway. in good taste to voice objections to things you think are wrong with the races. At the rider', meeting some things are covered which you wouldn't know about, and spectators around you try to pick up everything said, and then it is repeated over and over-and, not alway. correctly. This doe. not mean that you shouldn't root for your rider, for that is only natural and good. Finally, when entering the pi IS after races, don't immediately start voicing all the things you thought were wrong with them and how bad the treatment was he has gotten. If he has gotten bad treatment, he knows what procedure should be taken and it is "his" job to take it, not yours. . Racers wives or girl friends can be a very big asset to them, but, usually, not while the races are in progress. To <;;hange a p.hrase from a top perfonner: "Keep the racing faith, Baby."

Such ls the story of Jolin Hate1ey, currently juSt about the hottest rider in lhe Ascot Park motorcycle wars and winDer of four of lhe Jastftve novice main events at lhe course. Jolin's father d1dn't exactly start b1s r1d1Dg a motorcycle as soon as he was able to walk, buttt wasn't too much later. Although he is only 18, lhe young Van NuYs rider ls a well-experienced teenager. He began ott-road racing at the tender age of 12 and showed plenty at talent right from the start. TIlen he graduated into speedway racing and also was an immediate hit there. So it is hardly a surprise to veteran Ascot observers tbat Hateley currently is "blowing off" many of the naltoo's finest Novice riders in his year on the pro American Motorcycle Association circuit. Hateley ls equally at home on the flattrack action at Ascot Friday or lhe oncea-month steeplechase wars the first· Saturday of each month at the 183rd and Vermont Avenue layout. He lsespec1ally smooth, well-coordinated, almost never gets into trouble, according to Rox;y Rockwood, one of the nation's foremost cycle racing experts. A sligbt, slender rider, Hateley took a while to get going this year because of a series of mechanical fallures. But since he's been able to mate lhe machinery's abilities to his own talents, the combination has been almost unbeatable. ..,•..."' "' "'' ' ' ' ... See'e.
