The ATVMX Racing Nation has been honored with its first ever nominee for induction into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame. The AMA has announced that eight-time AMA ATVMX National Champion, Gary Denton, has been selected as a nominee for induction into the 2017 AMA Hall of Fame Class. Denton won an unprecedented eight consecutive AMA titles every year from 1987 to 1994. Moreover, Denton introduced a level of professionalism and promotion to a sport in its infancy, becoming one of the first stars of four-wheeled racing in the 80’s. His record remains unmatched. ATV’s remain an important part of AMA racing.
