Yet another reason to love the internet… I put up the post on the 14th about Herbst Racing and their connection to the Thorsen 78 440X sled as well as Todd Elmer’s 79 RXL, and we got all kinds of email on the story.
First, the 650cc machine the team built then sold at Hay Days has been found. Rob Simonich of Northern Minnesota is the proud owner. Jim Smith sent in these two photos of Steve Caperton racing Thorsen’s 78 sled out west. Both pictures show Steve Caperton on the #195 black RXL towards the back.
