Ty Davis rocked the motocross world in the 1990s and will now be honored for his versatile skills by being inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame. His induction will take place during the Legends Weekend at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, on November 16-17.
“If it involved an off-road motorcycle, Ty Davis probably raced it. Breaking into the pro scene in AMA Supercross, it didn’t take long for this multi-talented racer to start earning No. 1 plates in other disciplines as well,” said Jeffrey V. Heininger, chairman of board of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, which oversees the Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
Davis learned to ride early under his father’s watchful eye. Although his father is a desert racing enthusiast, there was no pressure to compete. When he did start racing at age 12, he loved it. It wasn’t long before Davis became a top motocross rider. He won the Golden State National Championship in the 250cc Pro class in 1987 and then went on to win two more championships the following year. His success and skills continued developing from this point forward.
