Broc Glover to be Honored at the MTA World Vet Championships

Broc to be awarded the Edison Dye Lifetime Motocross Achievement Award

This year's recipient of the Edison Dye Lifetime Motocross Achievement Award is the six-time AMA National Motocross Champion Broc Glover. Broc becomes the 14th recipient of this prestigious award, and will be honored with a special ceremony on Sunday, November 7th around 12:30 PM, at Glen Helen Raceway as part of the MTA World Vet Championships ceremonies. Broc will also be immortalized with a special monument, joining those other motocross greats in the Glen Helen Walk of Fame. Broc was selected by Bud Feldkamp and Tom White, two of the giants in the motocross industry, who both have tremendous knowledge of the history of our sport.

Dubbed the "Golden Boy" by the motorcycling press of the day, Broc Glover was one of the leading racers in the history of AMA Motocross. In all, Glover earned six AMA National Motocross Championships, a record which stood for nearly 20 years until 2003, when Ricky Carmichael finally eclipsed the mark. Glover won all of his titles riding for Yamaha.

In addition, Glover won the 1981 Trans USA Series (previously called Trans-AMA) held in the fall after the nationals. When he retired after the 1988 season, Glover held the AMA all-time wins record in both AMA 125cc motocross and 500cc motocross. He was also in the top 10 in career wins in AMA Supercross. He tallied an amazing 45 career AMA national wins in both motocross and Supercross and registered five wins in Trans USA competition. He was also a member of the winning 1983 USA Motocross and Trophy des Nations squad and again part of the Trophy des Nations team as a last-minute fill-in for an injured David Bailey in 1984. He also won the 1978 125cc United States Grand Prix in Lexington, Ohio.

After retirement, Glover got married and started a family. He remained very active in the sport working for No Fear, PJ1 and Dunlop Tire in his post-racing career. He was inducted into the AMA Motorcycling Hall of Fame in the year 2000. Broc also is the mainstay behind the Broc Glover's Breathe Easy Ride Against Cystic Fibrosis, and has raised thousands of dollars to help find cures to this serious condition.

A special display will be presented by The Early Years of Motocross Museum, featuring photos, posters, memorabilia and motocross machines similar to those Glover rode during his career. After the special Edison Dye Award ceremony, Broc and a plethora of VIPs will be available for autographs and well-wishes.
