Tom Penny #2.

Tom came to the USA from England and casually destroyed all our spots before vanishing to France. You stopped seeing photos of him in the mags and then, all of sudden, there he is spinning an Indy 540. Some people got it like that.

I was saving this for Friday, but after seeing the Muska at the Chrome Ball Incident, I figured today was the right day.

The photo was by Ashby.

Wow, this is awesome. I was there that day. It should be noted that he landed in a wheelie and only regained his balance halfway across the flat bottom.

I remember my jaw hitting the floor when this ad dropped. I knew he had transition skills but never expected a head high 540 like that.

Dude definitely left his mark but you gotta wonder what could have been had his head been on straight.
