I saw a show on (I think) Speed TV about Jeff. They told how he was hanging around some dirt bike area when Bruce Brown was filming, and got in the movie. Then he went on to dominate motocross for many years. The show ended with his current racing, now in his "golden years." It was a great show; they had a lot of footage from the early days of motocross and interviews with other icons of the era.
that was one of "The Motocross Files" series on Speed. This is the second season;they've had shows on Lackey,Pomeroy,Glover,Weiner,Tony D., Tripes,Glover,Smith,Hannah,etc etc. A great series and well worth staying up till 1030 for.
Yeah I love to watch that show. I raced 250's and 500's back in the '70's and those guys were my heros. I even got lapped by Ron Pomeroy, Jims little brother on my YZ.......It was a rare honor.....(sniff)
