About Erik Kehoe –
Erik Kehoe has been a part of professional motocross for more than 30
years. As a mini-cycle and amateur racer, Kehoe was one of the top
contenders for amateur national titles. He is a
former factory motocross racer in the 1980s and ‘90s, initially with
Team Yamaha and later with Team Suzuki. It was his time with Suzuki that
he achieved the most success as a 125 specialist. He won 7 AMA National
outdoors events between 1985 and 1988. Following his success at Suzuki,
Kehoe went on to race for the Honda of Troy team and eventually
transitioned into a team manager role with the team. He would go on to
manage the HRC Honda Factory team from 2002 through 2012. It was at that
time that the team won championships with Ricky Carmichael. After a
break from the industry, Kehoe returned to manage the HRC Honda team
again in 2018, a position he currently holds. Please join us on Saturday night as we honor a fantastic addition to the Legends and Heroes list of honorees.
