A number of the Jollies scooted on down to Puyallup Fairgrounds on Saturday 11/27/2010 to take in Mickey Fay’s NW Extreme Flattrack Racing / Motorcycle & Quad indoor flattrack. Despite the cold and the aluminum bleachers, the races were pretty exciting, the track was large enough for passing, and some riders were very good!

To some that do not know Mickey Fay (pictured above to the left along with teammate Jeff Haney) is a member of the Washington State Motorcycle Hall of Fame. Mickey holds his spot in motorcycle history and was a frequent competitor and winner at the famous Jolly Rogers Motorcycle Club race track in Kent, WA.

About 20 years ago Honda introduced a 500 4-stroke single intended as a dual purpose bike. Burien Honda’s service manager Roger Stanley hopped up the engine, Richard Washer (Wasco) made a frame, and Mickey Fay became a member of Honda’s Dirt Track Team and part of  Honda’s Grand National Flat Track program.  He won the ’79 Houston TT (at the Houston Astrodome). It was such an achievement for a bike never intended to be raced that Honda ended up giving Mickey a factory ride for a couple of years. While in the mix with the national competition, he never achieved a similar distinction and is now promoting local races. See http://mickeyfaysraces.com
