Jeff Ward is one of the all-time greatest motorcycle racers in the world

His first brush with stardom was his 1971 appearance in the iconic movie On Any Sunday. Wardy was just a small kid and was shot doing his epic stand up wheelie. From that point on, he would continue to race, and turned professional in 1978 and raced all the way through 1993. He was the first rider to win all of the AMA Motocross Championships (125, 250, and 500cc), and the AMA 250cc Supercross title.


Ward won a total of seven AMA national championships, tying Bob Hannah and Ricky Johnson for the most career motocross and Supercross championships at the time of his retirement. In international motocross competition, Ward was a member of seven winning U.S. Motocross des Nations teams.

After retiring from racing in 1993, he turned his attention to IndyCar racing, where he landed one win (in Texas) and finished a close second at the Indy 500. After retiring from that sport, he moved back to two wheels and raced Supermoto, where he again would win several championships.
