2018 0212 JW AMA DTCN PHOTO AA huge dirt-track enthusiast, Robert Herrick in Michigan has authored a motorcycle dirt-track encyclopedia of riders assigned numbers from 1965 through 1990. It includes all Amateurs and Experts, both National and non-National numbers. It is 366 pages and sells for $35 to $40 (depending on shipping costs).

This compilation of AMA Pro Racing dirt-track Expert and Junior and Amateur riders covers the years from 1965 to 1990. Each rider’s number, name, hometown, and racing classification are listed. Identification of Rookie Expert years, factory riders, and rider deaths are also listed.

Accompanying tables show a breakdown of professional riders, by state and classification, from 1970 to 1989. Whenever a rider listed several home states over the course of a calendar year, that rider is listed in each of those states for that year. Finally, the Novice number and final year of Novice competition are listed for many prominent dirt-track stars from 1959 to 1985.

Thousands of motorcycle-racing programs and newspapers were reviewed during the process of creating this compilation. There may be an occasional error, as the author was unable to verify all data from every original source, but every effort has been made to make this compilation as correct as possible. Nowhere else can you find a more comprehensive list of AMA Pro Racing dirt-track rider numbers.
