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.
