This will lead up to the honoring of “Bad Brad” Lackey receiving the Edison Dye Motocross Lifetime Achievement Award for his long career culminating with Brad being America’s first World Champion in 1982. A film produced by The Motocross Files will be debuted chronicling Brad’s 1982 Championship season.

Attendees are going to have a lot of laughs and a very special, good time.” Said Todd Huffman, Producer of “The Motocross Files” on Speed and of the event.
“We understand the event is on Halloween and some folks with young families may not be able to attend, but we want to develop this important event around the MTA Vet Worlds at Glen Helen and it just happens to fall on this weekend”. Huffman added.
