Bill Bailey was a very familar face to many of the flat track racers in the Mid-Atlantic Area. His #1 passion in life, next to his family, was motorcycling. Bill was an AMA assistant referee who worked along side the likes of Shorty Dunford and many other great AMA Referees in our sport. Lucky for us the #2 hobby in Bill Bailey's life was photography, everywhere he went he took his trusty camera.
Sadly Bill passed many years ago but thanks to his son Mark's loan of his dads photo collection to scan, we are able to look through the lens of his fathers camera once again and share Bill Baileys passion for the sport of motorcycle racing. Thanks Bill and a special thanks to Mark.
Oh yeah, one last tribute. Here's to Bill's wife Evelyn Bailey who spent many years as the District 7 points keeper.
(there are lots more Bill Bailey pictures that I am in the process of scanning. So stay tuned)
