Remembering Ted Boody

At 6' 2" . . . Ted Boody was a little too tall to be a successful flat track racer. Wrong. Boody was one of the most versatile riders to ever participate in the sport. He won on TTs, Short Tracks, Miles, everything. He came back from injuries. He had long time spans between victories - but he still won. Boody won Ascot, Louisville and he won the Springfield Mile - and many other prestigious races throughout his career. He was killed many years ago in a freak last lap accident at Ascot Park at age 29. Ted was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
