WILD TIMES IN WILDWOOD
The Race Of Gentlemen
The Race Of Gentlemen has gone from a grassroots beachside weekend race in a sleepy New Jersey seaside town to a worldwide phenomenon. Founded by Oilers car and bike club member Mel Stultz, The Race Of Gentlemen, or TROG as it is also known, once a year turns the beaches of Wildwood, New Jersey, into a throwback 1/8-mile raceway like no one has seen in 70 years. The bikes raced are all early tank shift machines, and they range from bikes thrown together using rusty spare parts to $100,000 bikes that should by all accounts be sequestered to motorcycle museums.
We were lucky enough to have the photography of David Carlo, who completely captures both the joy and seriousness of this event. SC
