I was stationed at Kincheloe AFB in upper MI from 1965 to 67, not to far from Sault Ste Marie, MI & Canada. I used to go to a little drag strip in Canada to race my motorcycle & he was there one day. He was personable & answered all questions & then got his bike started (it was a Corvette 327 engine), rocked it back on the center stand by the rear wheel, revit up, rocked it forward & took off. The front wheel never touched the ground until he crossed the finish line & where we were by the starting line there was little black molten bit of pieces from his Cadillac rear tire falling from the sky. He sure was crazy but fast.
