Here's one of my favorite races ever, the 1982 World Cup. It was designed to bring the down under sensation San Simeon to the United States. There was two legs of the series. If memory serves me right, the first leg was for $125,000 and was won by BEATCHA. This is the second leg for $150,000 and the winner was GENGHIS KHAN and Bill O'Donnell in World Record time 1:53.1.


Below are two Youtube videos that feature the great NIHILATOR driven in the majority of his races by Bill O'Donnell. The first is from 1985's Meadowslands Pace. The second is a short documentary on NIHILATOR.
