AMA-logo-230PICKERINGTON, Ohio — Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. has reaffirmed its support for the AMA Legends Weekend — and the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Class of 2013 — by returning as banquet sponsor of the Induction Ceremony at the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Casino, Friday, Oct. 18.

The gala event will officially welcome the Hall of Fame class of 2013: AMA Supercross and Motocross Champion Ricky Carmichael; AMA and desert racing champion Danny Hamel; racer, promoter and motorcycle industry icon Norm McDonald; AMA roadracing champion Randy Renfrow; and motorcycling fundraisers and Ride For Kids founders Mike and Dianne Traynor.

“Kawasaki has a great history with motorcycling, and especially with one of our 2013 Hall of Fame inductees, Ricky Carmichael, who enjoyed factory support through the company’s Team Green program as an amateur, as well as support as a professional on the AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross circuits,” said Jeffrey V. Heininger, chairman of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, which oversees the Hall of Fame. “Kawasaki was part of many amateur and pro championships for Carmichael, and we’re proud to have the company’s support as they help us honor all of the members of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Class of 2013.”
