Dave Schultz is one of the greatest motorcycle drag racers who ever lived.
For his ingenuity and tremendous success, he is revered as the godfather of Pro Stock Motorcycle.
A true perfectionist and a fierce competitor, Schultz was a pioneer of the “gasoline and carburetor” class. He amassed six NHRA championships and 45 victories. Schultz is the only motorcycle drag racer to win the triple crown – a NHRA, IDBA and AMA/Prostar championship in the same year. He accomplished the feat twice, 1991 and 1994. When Schultz was on his game there was little his competition could do.
The legendary Terry Vance of Vance and Hines said, “He was the best guy who ever rode a Pro Stock motorcycle and I don’t think anybody would argue with that. He was the most dedicated person to that sport that there has ever been.”
