Howie Zechner and Don Emde to be recognized by TrailBlazers in 2025

 

 

Following in the tracks of yet another completely sold out gathering at the 79th Annual Trailblazers Banquet back in April, the 2025 Trailblazers Honorees have been named. On Wednesday, June 12th, the Trailblazers Board of Directors met to decide on the honorees for the club's 80th annual banquet to be held in Carson, California, on April 5, 2025. 

Billed as “a social organization of pioneer motorcycle enthusiasts” the group was founded in 1936 by A.F. Van Order as a way to round up fellow enthusiasts for bench racing and camaraderie. Originally called the “Old Timers” the first banquet took place in 1940... and the rest is history. 

The new TrailBlazers Hall of Fame inductees will be:

Steve Baker - Daytona 200 winner/Formula 750 World Champion

Eddie Castro - Speedway racing veteran

Tony Dodge - AMA Grand National Championship team owner

John & Rita Gregory - Founders of JT Racing

Bruce McDougal  - Southern California motocross pioneer

Roy Turner - Motocross team mechanic, manager, product designer

Additionally...

Howie Zechner will be the recipient of the Earl & Lucile Flanders Lifetime Achievement Award.

Former Dealernews publisher Don Emde will receive the 2025 Dick Hammer Award.
