Gary Nixon's racing career spanned 20+ years. One of the longest of any professional motorcycle racer. Nixon rode for 4 factory teams. He won the Daytona 200 (back when it was "the" road race to win). I got the opportunity to overhear a couple of his racing stories while he talked to Bubba Shobert in Springfield one year. Nixon was a great story teller . . . everyone was in a big circle taking this all in . . . it was great.
