Dante's Italian Social Club in Sacramento hosted over 150 racers and fans for an evening of dinning,
bench racing and awards presentation to dirt racers and riders from AHRMA's western region.
The room was aglow as arriving members realized the Dick and Kay Mann had traveled from their home
in Nevada to attend this banquet. Mike Van Lienden MC'ed the nights festivities which saw endless lines
of motocrossers and feet up riders receive their hardware. The patient flat trackers waited till last and received their
number plate trophies and gear bags. Feelings ran strong for the missing man who was such
an important part of vintage racing in Northern California. Mike Lightfoot will truly be missed.
Highlight of the evening!
