Tom White and Bud Feldkamp are excited and proud to announce that the 2017 recipient of the Edison Dye Motocross Lifetime Achievement Award will be none other than AMA Hall of Famer Malcolm Smith! The legendary Malcolm Smith was one of the true pioneers of American off-road racing, as he helped Edison Dye introduce Husqvarna’s to America in the mid-1960s. Malcolm, always racing for the joy and fun of competition, engaged in motocross, scrambles, enduros, and desert racing.
Malcolm will be honored during day two, November 5th, of the World Vet Championships with a ceremony (hosted by Tom White) beginning around noon. An Early Years of Motocross video highlighting Malcolm’s exemplary career will be presented. The ceremony will be held in the Glen Helen Museum, so plan on getting there early for the best seats!
After the presentation, there will be an autograph signing session tentatively featuring Malcolm, Chuck Sun, Gary Jones, Broc Glover, Lars Larsson, Tom White and many others from past Edison Dye recipients and Hall of Fame members. A special, limited edition collectable poster signifying Malcolm’s achievements will be given to the first 100 fans in the autograph line! This all happens at the Dubya World Vet Motocross Championships at Glen Helen Raceway, November 4th and 5th! For more information on the Dubya World Vet event, visit glenhelen.com. Congratulations, Malcolm, for being the next member of the Glen Helen Walk of Fame, and the 2017 recipient of the Edison Dye Motocross Lifetime Achievement Award!
