Steve Eklund Steve Eklund

Achievements:
1976 AMA Rookie of the Year.


Steve Eklund was born in Fremont, California, in 1955. He began his amateur racing career at 14, and became the top amateur dirt track rider in the nation in 1975. Eklund started on the AMA Grand National circuit in 1976 and began winning immediately, earning the coveted AMA Rookie of the Year Award. During his 14-year professional career, Eklund won 17 national races. Although TT was his specialty, he also won on miles, half-miles and short tracks. The big factory contract that most champions of his caliber would expect never came to Eklund, victim of the sagging economy and hard times that had befallen the motorcycle industry during the 1980s. Tragically, Eklund was fatally injured in a racing accident at the Albuquerque Mile in 1990. After lingering in a coma for over 15 months, he died in September 1991. He was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1998.
