Manlius, NY – The Legends & Heroes Moto Museum Tour will honor moto great Scott Burnworth January 17 at the third round of the Monster Energy Supercross in Angel Stadium.
Hailing from the Golden State, Scott Burnworth got his first motorcycle in 1974 when he was 10 years old. Shortly after his father had removed the headlight, Scott began to show that he had some immense racing talent. In 1977, Scott became a Mini Cycle National Champion.
In 1980, Burnworth received support from Suzuki. He used that year to learn the ropes of the professional divisions and picked up enough speed to really turn some heads, becoming the AMA Rookie of the Year.
"We can remember Scott winning the AMA Rookie of the Year in 1980 and his rise in the moto ranks with Yamaha and Suzuki. Finishing second in 1983 to David Bailey was a great year for Scott," states Alex Moroz, General Managing Partner of the Legends and Heroes Tour. "While riding for Team Yamaha, Burnworth hooked up with the likes of Broc Glover, Mike Bell, and Bob Hannah and expanded his racing career."
Scott will be presented with the Legends and Heroes Award and a custom engraved Rockwell time piece on the Monster Energy podium on Saturday evening at Angel Stadium.
