ratu I • Hard work, rare talent, old fashioned determination, good equipment and the quality line of Klotz Lubricants and Wiseco Pistons made our team the most successful in 1979 Winston Pro Series racing. Klotz and Wiseco want you to know how proud we are of that achievement. And most importantly, _ we want to say, "Thanks, guysl" SCOTT PARKER Winston Pro Series Rookie of , . . - - - - - - ; the Year is among the toughest achievements in motorcycling. En route to that honor in 1979, Scott Parker whipped .one of the finest rookie crops in AMA history ... and occasionally gave all those "grown up" veterans a riding lesson as well. o 00 0') ..... RANDY GOSS Three National wins; third in the final standings just three points behind Jay Springsteen; a remarkable perfect record of 23 starts and 23 point-paying finishes ... 1979 was a banner year for Randy Goss, who had never before reached the Winston Pro Series top 10. A former Amateur National Champion at age 17 and the youngest Expert in AMA history, Scotty loves to bring the crowd to its feet by full-boring a dirt track corner, feet up and grinning ear-to-ear. In 1979, on the mile ovals at DuQuoin and Indy, his skill and desire merged into magic, and those two victories make the KlotzlWiseco sponsored kid from Flint, Michigan, the y~ungest Grand National race winner ever. How much success can one rider cram into a single season? How good can Scotty Parker be? Watch him in 1980 and find out. Those who saw the determination with which Randy built his KlotzlWiseco backed 79 racing program weren't surprised, and they smiled knowingly when he won Middletown and then Des Moines. Randy summed it up himself after claiming victory in the Winston Pro finale at Ascot Park. "I heard this was a racer's track," he said in victory circle, "and I'm a racer." , sm_r~ Klotz Special Formula Products, Inc. P.O. Box 1343, Ft.
