St Louis, MO – March 15, 2018 – The Legend and Heroes Tour traveling moto museum is pleased to announce that they will honor Midwest motocross legend Joe Burke this Saturday night at round eleven of the Monster Energy Supercross series in St Louis, Missouri.

 

The Tour stands behind the belief that “We Don’t Leave History Behind” and has kept the founding fathers, and mothers, pure in their thoughts by honoring the men and women that shaped supercross and motocross into what it is today. Each honoree receives a special commemorative plaque during a special podium presentation on the stadium floor before opening ceremonies.



About Joe Burke

 

Joe started racing motocross in 1972 aboard a Yamaha DT175. In those days you would replace the lights that came on the bikes with number plates and head out to the track. His first race was at Freddy Vans Cycle Land on the Kansas/Missouri border.

 

Joe moved up the ranks quickly racing a Suzuki Cyclone 400 for BJ Suzuki when he was only 14 and then found success on Can-Am and then Maico’s. He began racing for Donnell’s Suzuki in Kansas City and raced under their banner for 11 years winning multiple King of Kansas City Championships and the Houston Astrodome GNC in the 250 Expert class.

 

Following his motocross career, Joe started racing vintage motocross winning the MOVMX series in 2010 and 2011.

 

Joe’s Historical 1974 Can-Am from his Trans-Am series will be on display this Saturday at the Legends and Heroes Moto Museum display.

 

Join us Saturday in St Louis as we honor Joe.

 

With nearly 5000 square feet of display space, the Legends and Heroes Tour is a definite must-see during the Pit Party at a supercross near you.

 

The mobile museum features walk-through display videos that allow our guests the opportunity to take a trip back to back to where the sport began. The videos show the heroes of the sport from the beginning of their careers to the races that made them famous. New to the tour in 2018 is the Supercross Virtual Reality mobile experience (SXVR) where fans can experience the thrill of supercross via VR technology and feel like they are on the racetrack.

 

Fans are also encouraged to stop by early and pick up a complimentary copy of RacerX magazine while supplies last. And thanks to our local friends at each round, the Legends Tour features some of the best vintage motocross bikes on display in a single location. Featuring different vehicles at each round, our guests can relive the machines of their youth and show their family and friends the early days of motocross and supercross.
