    I moved to paradise 11/1/14 from San Diego.I started my racing career. when I was 18 yrs, racing AMA motorcycles professionally on 1/4 and 1/2 miles, mostly at Belmont 1/4 mile dirt. A few years later I started racing BCRA midgets. I was 22yrs when I started my USAC oval track carear. I’m looking forward to talk racing with someone locally. I was also involved in machine shops. The company I started, was Chipco Mfg. which is doing business in Yuba City. I have spent most of my life in M/C racing,circle track and open wheel, machine shops and racquetball. I live in a home on Black olive.
    Looking forward to meeting you.

    • Hi Jimmy,
      Next time I’m heading up to Chico or Paradise I’ll give you a call. Can I add you to our list of Northern California race car drivers? What years did you race? Do you have any old photos of you or your motorcycles or cars? We would love to see them sometime. It is great to hear from you.
      Thank you,
      Tim Newey
