Dave Mungenast Sr. was inducted into the
Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2000. He was one of motorcycling's prominent
advocates and supporters in the second half of the 20th century. A
leading enduro racer of the 1960s and '70s, he rode the International
Six Days Trials nine times in his career and earned six medals in the
prestigious competition, including two golds and a silver. As a
motorcycle dealer and owner of off-road riding areas, Mungenast
continued to support off-road riding after his retirement from racing.
He also sponsored numerous off-road racing events in his home state of
Missouri. He passed away in September 2006.
"It's an honor to
associate our event with Hall of Famer Dave Mungenast Sr., a treasured
friend, a great motorcyclist and a wonderful ambassador for the sport
and business of motorcycling," said Jeffrey V. Heininger, chairman of
the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, which raises money for the
Hall of Fame. "Last year we showcased 78 classic, rare and beautiful
machines, including the world's fastest motorcycle, in our annual bike
show and we expect even more in 2011. I have high expectations that the
Dave Mungenast Memorial Motorcycle Hall of Fame Concours d'Elegance
will raise the bar for classic motorcycle shows in this country."
