Early 1980, hammer down and rambling into the lead is Lee Baker #1 in Henderson, Kentucky. #41 is Chuck Barton and #6 is Mike Fowler. Lee was a 15 yr old expert until October 1980.
Mid-1980 at Evansville, Indiana. #6 is Mike Fowler. Mike was NBL National # 6 (14 yr old Expert) and Lee Baker was National # 2 for 1979 (14 yr old Expert). In 1980, Lee ended up NBL National # 8. Lee was in position for a chance at National #1 going into the NBL Grand Nationals at #4. But he failed to make the main and finished the year at NBL National # 8.
More on Lee in a future post, including more pictures.

Chuck Robinson made a name for himself as the Team Manager for Webco and later DG.
But when he wore the big hat at Robinson he had to have help running the team. If you can add details or bios on any of these guys please do.
Early 1980’s Team Manager – Mark Soria
Late 80’s Team Manager – Danny Nelsons Dad I think
Was Mrs. Hatfield a TM at one point?

Just a couple image from the 96 catalog. I will add more later. The MX, SST, Pro and Rebel were all the same exact size and geometry. But the Rebel was TriMoly I think and the other 3 4130 frames. I believe the Pro, SST and MX all had closed looptail, while the Rebel was not closed in 96.
The SST and MX appear to be almost identical. Perhaps one had a mild steel fork or different rims. But for the most part the same exact parts group.
