Hammer Time!

Bruce Hammer powers out of a turn at Road Atlanta on his Kal-Gard Yamaha TZ750 in June of 1980. It was a great weekend for Bruce. He scored his one and only AMA Formula One podium, taking third behind Rich Schlachter and Wes Cooley. In case you didn’t know, Bruce lent his name to Team Hammer and was co-founder of the squad with John Ulrich. Note the famous Hammer logo on his helmet. The team continues to race in MotoAmerica competition to this day. (Gary Van Voorhis photo)
