Good Day, Bad Day For Whitehouse At Willow

Copyright 2002, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.<BR><BR>WSMC racer Clinton Whitehouse had a Saturday that could only be described as a mixed day, good in one extreme and bad in the other.<BR><BR>Whitehouse was involved in a nasty crash on the front straightaway of Willow Springs International Raceway during practice on Saturday afternoon, when another racer saw the checkered flag as he exited turn nine, thought he'd missed it on the previous lap, and dove for the pit entrance--just as Whitehouse was easing past on the outside. Both crashed, and Whitehouse's GSX-R750 was heavily damaged.<BR><BR>Later that same day, at the annual WSMC awards banquet held in nearby Lancaster, California, Whitehouse won a drawing for a new Toyota Tundra pickup truck.<BR><BR>Other drawing winners included Bryan Kovarick (Yamaha YZF-R1), Chuck Graves (Yamaha YZ125), Jeremy Toye (Yamaha Home Theater Sound System) and Danny Farnsworth (Specialized full-suspension mountain bike).
