Hall of Famers Racing Locally
Before, and sometimes far after, they were in the Hall

These race reports from 2002 2009 on the old MXBob.com web site featured many Minnesota riders who would graduate to the Hall, or ones that were still racing long after their pro days were over. Because I did all the Grantsburg race reports, and quite a few Motokazie events, riders at those events appear much more prominently in this collection.
