RIP: Honda Mechanic Mike Velasco
Henny Ray
"The moment with Velasco that really sticks with me was at the AMA Light Weight BOTT race at Daytona in 1991," Said Craig Erion. "I raced my mildly tuned Hawk while my brother raced his Ducati. He won that race and I finished 10th. I took some pride that I was the first Hawk to cross the finish line. After the race Mike, my brother and I were standing there and Mike said, 'I think we can make the Hawk a winner.' And my brother went on to win a couple of national championships on a Velasco built Hawk.
