2003 LEFT: Billy Hamill Team members Carlos Cardona (left) and Mike Lord (right).They are Billy's pit crew when he races in California. Mike and Billy have been best friends since their school days. Carlos is responsible for Billy's involvement in speedway because he used to take Billy to watch speedway at Irwindale and helped get him started as a junior.
1999 Gary Roberts: "This is a picture I took after the 1999 AMA National at Auburn. Left to right, 5 ex-junior Speedway riders, Josh Larsen, Greg Hancock, Jessee Finch, Billy Hamill, Ryan Evans and Junior Speedway supervisor, Bill Hancock. Billy Hamill is looking happy cos he just won the National. But there is a large ice-pack on his left hand which kept him out of racing for a month after this night."
