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.
