Gene Romero Named Grand Marshal of AMA Pro Flat Track Finals At Pomona
Gene Romero, one of the most colorful and successful flat track motorcycle racers whose popularity introduced the sport to a wider audience of sports fans in the 1970s, has been named Grand Marshal for the AMA Pro Flat Track Finals, set for October 11 at the LA Fairplex in Pomona.
"It's an honor and I'm flattered,” said Romero, who was inducted in the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1998. "I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends there.”
"We chose Gene Romero as Grand Marshal because he is a legend who has bled for the sport for 40 years,” said Chris Morgan, co-promoter of the AMA Pro Flat Track Finals. "He has been a great friend, and the legacy he has left as a rider, promoter and an ambassador for the sport makes him exactly the type of person who deserves this honor.”
Romero was the youngest Grand National titleholder in the sport's history when, at 22 years old, he won the 1970 championship and the fans' most popular rider honors, just seven years after his first amateur race at Ascot Park in Southern California. He was so dominant that he sealed the championship by winning Sacramento Mile with two races remaining on the schedule.
