Henry on the 4-stroke

I was at this race, as i was at all the Seattle sx's from 88-99. Anyways, what I remember from this race was at about the 20 minute mark or so in your video when they were showing Doug Henry. If you notice there was a left hand turn before the big tripple in the middle of the track. All the two-strokes went wide in the turn before to get a run to clear the triple...Henry rolls to the inside, grabs a handful and clears the jump easily. I remember him doing this lap after lap because his bike was sooo loud when he would grab that handful of throttle. Such a clear advantage he had in that situation.

I also remember, being a northwest guy, how bummed I was when Lusk went by Ward and knocked him off the podium.
