He will be missed.
Scott Summers, nine-time off-road champion and a true ambassador of the sport, announced his retirement before a standing ovation from Honda dealers at last night's Honda convention in Las Vegas. Summers will continue to work with the Honda Riders Club of America promoting off-road riding to youth of all ages. Besides all of those championships and race wins, his legacy includes helping turn off-road racing in America from an amateur, club-level activity to a full-blown professional sport. Summers' professionalism, work ethic and business skills changed the sport of off-road racing in America forever.
