AMA MOTORCYCLE HALL OF FAME RULE CHANGES
The AMA Hall of Fame is changing its voting procedures for Hall of Fame inclusion. The changes include:
(1) A “Highly Qualified Candidate” category that will be established to nominate candidates whose accomplishments have taken place outside the public eye, but have played a significant role in motorcycling. This category will beindependent of the normal procedures because it gives the the independent Hall of Fame Selection Committees a tool to recognize advocates and other behind-the-scenes workers whose accomplishments have played a major role in motorcycling, but go unnoticed.
(2) Starting with the 2016 Hall of Fame class, all AMA Life Members (with at least 25 consecutive years of membership) will be invited to vote for Hall of Fame inductees. This includes all AMA Charter Life Members and paid AMA Life Members who have at least 25 consecutive years of membership. In addition, in recognition of the ongoing financial support that the AMA and its members contribute to the Hall of Fame, all current AMA members who show their valid AMA card will receive free entry into the Hall of Fame museum.
