This is the 32 page Program (including covers) of the 1980 (May 10 & 11) bike race event which was held in Tulsa, OK. The race was sanctioned by Omni-Sports American Bicycle Racing Circuit (ABRC) and sponsored by Facet Cycle Company (BioCam Crank Drive System). This is the second season for the ABRC to hold races in America. This program was kindly sent to me by Angel Garcia of NJ, an active member of the CR List.
