Rich Oliver wins the third annual Roadracing World 250/50!
Mystery School owner Oliver retrieved his 2003 Championship winning Yamaha from storage to win the Willow Springs event by 26.204 seconds, lapping up to third place.
With help from Keith McCarty, Bob Starr and Jeff Jones from Yamaha USA, Ed Sorbo from Roadracing World Magazine, and 250 racer Bruce Lind he was able to find enough parts to run the machine one more time.
Oliver comments, "I had a great time getting on track again after a year layoff, it felt awesome to race at Willow Springs! I really have to thank my long time mechanic Robert Ward for another outstanding performance. He has a knack for getting our Yamaha TZ running incredibly strong every time he works on it.
