MX Sports Pro Racing Congratulates Kevin Windham On Successful Careerƒ‚ 

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (January 21, 2013) ƒ—“ MX Sports Pro Racing and all event Promoters of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, wish to congratulate Kevin Windham on his decision to retire. Windham announced his retirement during opening ceremonies of the Anaheim Supercross on Saturday night at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. The GEICO Honda rider made the decision to call time on his career after meeting with family, friends and his team.

Windham, 34 years, has been racing at the highest levels of the sport since 1994, when the mini-cycle prodigy turned pro after winning eight titles at Loretta Lynn's AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships. His professional career

"Without a doubt Kevin Windham will be remembered as one of the most popular athletes the sport has ever known," said MX Sports Pro Racing President, Davey Coombs. "He was not only an exceptional rider, but a great role model who was always generous with his time and the fans. He has provided countless great races and memories, as well as nearly forty career wins. By any measure, he was one of American motocross racing's greatest heroes. We have know Kevin since he first came to Loretta Lynn's on a 65cc mini-cycle back in 1988, and it has been our pleasure to see him enjoy such a long and illustrious career. We truly appreciate his efforts, both on the race track as a competitor and off the track as a wonderful ambassador for the sport."

Windham won his first AMA Pro Motocross National on May 12, 1996, at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, Calif. His last win came on September 4, 2010, at Steel City Raceway. The time between Windham's first National win and last win marks the longest gap in Pro Motocross history.
