Ward Robinson, 85

With his wife, Peg, at his side, Ward Robinson became a pillar of the motocross world, hosting some of the biggest and most important national and international events in the sport’s history. It’s somehow fitting that Ward Robinson would pass on the eve of the Unadilla National, the biggest event at the track he first began running more than half a century ago. In 1970, Unadilla hosted a Trans-AMA event, which was part of the first AMA-sanctioned motocross tour in America. Then, in 1987, Robinson’s facility became the first U.S. track to host the prestigious FIM Motocross of Nations. “The passing of Ward Robinson is a big loss for everyone — he was the face of Unadilla,” said Hannah, a multi-time AMA Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross Champion.
