Racing Legends Headed to Thor MX Rewind At Unadilla –¬†Motocross History Comes Alive June 10-12!

New Berlin, NY (June 1, 2016)- With just a little over a week remaining until the kick off of the 2016 edition of Thor MX Rewind, Unadilla is pleased to announce the legends line up. Twelve former racing legends will be attending Thor MX Rewind at Unadilla on June 10-12, 2016.

Representing the early years of motocross racing will be Joe Annunziata, Dick “King Richard” Burleson, and Barry Higgins. All three of these riders raced at Unadilla in our beginning years.

In addition, four new racers representing the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s will be in attendance, including Todd DeHoop (early member of the Michigan Mafia), Arlo Englund, Canadian Doug “The Sweeper” Hoover, and one of the most versatile off-road racers ever, Rodney Smith.

Returning this year is popular legend Chuck Sun, the 1980 500cc National Champion and member of the winning 1981 US Motocross and Trophee des Nations teams. Also returning to thrill fans with their riding and fan friendly natures are: John Dowd, Doug Henry (1993 and 1994 125cc National Champion and 1998 250cc National Champion), Trey Jaworski, and Bruce Stratton.

“We have another great line up of legends for Thor MX Rewind” said Unadilla’s Greg Robinson. “It’s hard to believe that we are celebrating the 5th Anniversary of this great weekend of vintage racing. It’s wonderful to have these outstanding legends with us to remember “the good ole days”. Over the years we’ve heard and seen a lot of funny moments from our legends. Our fans are always surprised at how approachable the legends are and how easy it is to get that treasured picture and autograph. To have them all in one place at the same time reliving motocross history is simply priceless. Every decade of our racing history is represented by one or more of these legends and each one has more than one unique story to share. My sister and I couldn’t be more thrilled or honored to have them all with us this year.”

The legends will be in attendance from Friday through Sunday taking part in meet and greets, bench racing, racing, and the Saturday night Gathering of Legends. Fans are encouraged to bring memorabilia they want autographed and to strike up a conversation with any of the legends.
