Born May 6, 1967, in Stockton, Calif., Chris Carr’s amateur racing father put him on a motorcycle at a young age. Growing up a few miles from the Lodi Cycle Bowl, Carr started competing at the age of 6 on a 38cc Moto Villa.

Four decades later, Carr had collected seven Grand National Championships and was second on the all-time win list behind fellow Hall of Famer Scott Parker.

In addition to his success on the dirt oval, Chris Carr was part of the ABC Superbikers at a young age, a leading AMA Superbike rider mid-career and more recently one of the world’s leading land-speed racers.

In 2006, Carr became the fastest man on two wheels when he set a motorcycle land speed record of 350.884 mph piloting Denis Manning’s BUB Enterprises streamliner at the AMA/FIM International Motorcycle Speed Trials by BUB on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Although Rocky Robinson and Mike Akatiff surpassed them in 2008, Carr and Manning returned in 2009 to reclaim the crown, logging 367.382 mph through the measured mile.
