Jimmy Benolkin - Minnesota Motorcycle Hall of Fame Member

Jimmy Benolkin - Motocross

Updated June 2020

Brother of fellow MN Hall of Fame member, Tom Benolkin, Jimmy is probably most well known for something he did as an amateur. Shortly before the nationals moved permanently to Loretta Lynnís, the national race was held at Millville (then called Zumbro). Jimmy became the only rider to sweep all 4 motos of the premier 250 Expert class.

He did not enter very many pro races, but earned his way into the Hall with a 19th place in the 250 class at Lake Whitney on April 18, 1982.
