I raced at The Hammer back in the 80's in the yamaha class. The flag stand used to be on the front stretch Up until Dave Cordier (owner/flagger) couldn't take any more of the harrasment from the fans in the stands. Mostly because us Joisey guys would go out there and kick their butts!So he up and moved his little house to the backstretch by the river for some peace and tranquilty.
Wicked fast litttle track for karts. I took one hell of a tumble right by that ree on the left on night. To this day my back and head still hurts. They used to run 10-12 classes of karts every saturday and all the classes had about 40 entries each week. Now they have about 25 classes with about 6 entries. Man how the times have changed.
