2013 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

6D helmets, a company that brings an innovative approach to head protection, has signed on to support the 2013 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

The gala event will officially honor the incoming class of 2013: AMA Supercross and Motocross Champion Ricky Carmichael; AMA and desert racing champion Danny Hamel; racer, promoter and motorcycle industry icon Norm McDonald; AMA roadracing champion Randy Renfrow; and motorcycling fundraisers and Ride For Kids founders Mike and Dianne Traynor.

6D will welcome Hall of Famers and guests as sponsor of the AMA Hall of Fame Cocktail Party immediately prior to the dinner and induction ceremony at the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., on Friday, Oct. 18.

Jeffrey V. Heininger (Chairman of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation) says: “The folks at 6D Helmets run a very forward-thinking company with a revolutionary product.

“They clearly recognize that the accomplishments and hard work of many legendary riders, advocates and industry standouts have made motorcycling what it is today. We’re proud to have them on board to help us honor the class of 2013.”

Bob Weber (6D Helmets) says: “We are proud to be a part of this exceptional event honoring individuals that helped to change the face of motorcycling forever. As a young brand servicing the safety needs of our sport, I feel this is a fantastic way to support the AMA and help introduce our brand and technology to the marketplace. I’m really looking forward to the event!”

The class of 2013 will be officially inducted on Friday, Oct. 18, during the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Legends Weekend in a star-studded gala at Las Vegas’ Green Valley Resort & Casino, with tickets available to the general public.

Also featured at the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony are two Hall of Fame Legends – existing members of the Hall of Fame whose lifetime accomplishments are highlighted. The 2013 Legends are: Mark Blackwell, a pioneering racer in American motocross, a six-time AMA championship race team manager and a well-respected executive in the motorcycle industry; and Torsten Hallman, a four-time FIM World Motocross champion who was instrumental in introducing the sport of motocross to America and later founded the Thor brand.

Also part of the weekend’s activities is the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Dave Mungenast Memorial Legends Reception on Saturday, Oct. 19, where the class of 2013, the 2013 Hall of Fame Legends and AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famers from previous years will be honored and interviewed on-stage in a relaxed setting that allows fans and friends to get up close and personal with motorcycling’s heroes.

Additionally, fans in town that weekend also have a chance to enjoy the AMA Supercross Monster Energy Cup Saturday night at Sam Boyd Stadium.

Tickets for the Legends Weekend are on sale now at motorcyclemuseum.org. The price is $140 for Friday night’s induction ceremony, and $20 for Saturday’s reception, which includes a continental breakfast. Additionally, rooms at the Green Valley Ranch can be reserved now for a special rate here, or by calling (866) 782-9487 and using the code GCIAMHF.

The AMA Legends Weekend is a fundraiser for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, which is overseen by the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation.
