    I saw Evel Knievel & Ken Carter perform at Worcester, Massachusetts in September 1977. Ken Carter was billed as "Ken Carter The Crazy Canadian".

    I remember when Ken Jumped at Atlantic Speedway. My Dad, Jerry Lawrence, was the track announcer and is shown in the video. Ahh, gone are the days of thrill shows. they were great while they lasted. Although, Paul Ridell still travels the US and Canada
