Twenty years ago this month, the motocross community lost a legend—one who few of us attending the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn's had the privilege of knowing. However, the recent article from We Went Fast, "The Ballad of Big Dave," provided an opportunity to get to know the man who created this event over 37 years ago. Although many of us never met Big Dave, we have witnessed his big heart through his family: Rita, Carrie, Tim, and Davey. It is through this family that his legacy lives on: a legacy of passion, work ethic, and dedication in the spirit of racing.
On Track School is honored to announce that we have been chosen as the recipient of a $10,000 donation in Dave Coombs Sr.’s honor that will provide post-secondary students with funds to continue their education by enrolling in college-level courses. Partnering with On Track School will provide these students with college and career counseling and ultimately nurture a desire for lifelong learning that will lead to their continued success.
Andrea Leib, director and founder of On Track School, is honored to accept this generous offering. “I would like to invite industry leaders to help keep this scholarship alive in Dave Coombs Sr.’s honor by contributing to the Dave Coombs Scholarship Fund so we can give back to the community that has provided so much for all of us. Finally, thank you to the Coombs families for prioritizing education so that our racing community can thrive.”
