Johnny O'Mara and Jeff Ward are the old guard of motocross at 28. They are old enough to remember what racing was like five years ago when O'Mara won the Supercross at the Rose Bowl, and Ward won the American Motorcyclist Assn. stadium series championship the same night. The Kawasaki teammates will be the only riders left from the 1985 event who will race tonight when the Camel Supercross series returns to the Rose Bowl for the 20-lap Coors Extra Gold Super Challenge.
