Roberts' career over the second half of the sixties and into the early seventies was in-fucking-credible in terms of victories in the most highly regarded races of the day, he won outright the Mint 400 and took out the Baja 500 and its big daddy offshoot, the 1000 on multiple occasions . . . . he'd go onto to represent the States in two ISDT's that I know of, became a stuntman of some note and also appeared in 'On Any Sunday' and the mid two thousands gem, 'Dust to Glory', the guy had seriously oversized nads and talent to back them up . . . . I'm sorta positive he kept racing on a part time basis up until the eighties . . . . how fucking cool is that shit ???? And along with Malcom Smith and some bloke called McQueen, was also partly responsible for getting the Husqvarna brand the profile it was deserving of back in the day.
The video I've stolen from the PooTube is nothing more than 'J.N' on board a Husky, on the pin and charging through the dusty minefield that desert racing is, tussocks of grass, shrubs, rocks, stones and gibbers, logs, rabbit holes, loose sand, creek beds . . . . what else have you got ??? There's also a hell bit of heavy twangin, bass slappin, snare rollin, trainkeeps a comin rockabilly as a soundtrack, it's only a minute sixteen in length, but sweet Jesus, it's a wild and crazy ride !!!!
