AMA Hall of Famer David Aldana Named AHRMA Classic MotoFest Grand Marshal
(May 20, 2021, Elora, Tennessee) Legendary racer David Aldana will be the Grand Marshal for the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) AHRMA Classic MotoFest® in the Heartland.
The event is May 28-30, 2021, at Heartland Motorsports Park, in Topeka, Kansas. Aldana will be available to sign autographs and will have t-shirts available for purchase in addition to his other Grand Marshal activities throughout the weekend.
“David Aldana is synonymous with all kinds of racing during the 70s and 80s and his legend on and off the racetrack continues to build,” said Arthur Kowitz, Chairman of the AHRMA Board of Trustees. “We’re honored that he’s the Grand Marshal for our first MotoFest at Heartland Motorsports Park.”
Aldana is held in high esteem in the racing community. Beginning in 1970, he competed at the top levels of dirt track racing, eventually moving into professional road racing, as well. He was a top AMA Grand National Series competitor during the 1970s, winning four AMA nationals during his career, and in 1981 he won the Suzuka eight-hour endurance race. He is known for his distinctive racing leathers which are adorned with a life-sized human skeleton design. Aldana also took on motocross and observed trials. His on-track achievements were captured in the classic 1971 Bruce Brown film “On Any Sunday,” and led to his 1999 induction into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
Aldana will also be racing in AHRMA’s National Vintage Motocross series during the MotoFest.
