Yes - Glen Cambell won in both Saturday and Sunday's sidecar races.

The Yamaha S46 were a father/daughter team. The daughter was 'the monkey'. I am guessing she was 17-18 years old. Really cool to see them out there.

That is neat about the Yamaha team & rig. Is it a 2 or 4 cylinder engine?
XS650?

XS650 - I assume with a 750 kit. Most sidecar rigs I see are XS650 or R75 motors.

The XS650 with 750 kits are pretty much all you see out there in the Sportsman 750 class.
