For any of you that are old school motocross fans, the moto world lost Marty Smith last night. He and his wife were killed in a buggy accident at Imperial Dunes. An Icon and hero for many of us growing up... RIP Marty Smith.

SAD !! I remember watching him in a race in St. Louis in the late 70s along with the Hurricane.
He was 7-8 years older than me... I was absolutely that kid on a YZ80 in '75 and '76 that wanted to be Marty Smith at 20. Poster on my wall, all of it.

Didn’t ever know of Marty and his wife, but as a human and fellow rider , that’s so very sad news. Godspeed.
