"There was no place like Gratz. It was the one track you had to run. Even Nixon came to Gratz. there were all kinds of tracks around district 6 back then. Scrambles, TTs, all with their own quirks, but Gratz was the jewel. Gratz was the one to win.." -Doug Bowers #82
Everybody ran Gratz. Eves and Schaeffer, Gary Deel, Serbu, Bowers, Johnny Ward, Gary Fisher, the Varnes, The Texters, Bob Holmes Luke Zechmann and so many other guys. Everybody had a story and everybody wanted to win. It was what we all lived for." Joe Park #75
