2023 "HOT SHOE" HALL OF FAME MUSEUM CELEBRATION

Oct 23 2022

Popular "Hot Shoe" Hall of Fame Salutes Motorcycle Racers & "On Any Sunday II" Movie

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Oct. 20, 2022) – Many of the greatest motorcycle racers and industry icons will be on hand Saturday, Jan. 28, 2023, for the third annual “Hot Shoe Hall of Fame” Museum celebration for the Motorcycle Industry at the Gene Woods Racing Experience at Las Vegas’ Fremont Street.

The gala (FREE TO EVERYONE) at Las Vegas’ Notoriety Theatre in the Neonopolis portion of the Las Vegas Fremont Street Experience (450 E. Fremont St., 3rd Floor) with honor motorcycle legends from around the world. The 2023 Hall of Fame honorees will be presented their “Hot Shoe Hall of Fame” plaques, and many will be interviewed on stage to talk about their motorcycle experiences.

In recent years, the legendary Kenny Roberts, the 2021 “Hot Shoe” Lifetime Achievement Award winner, joined other legends like Bubba Shobert, Brad Lackey, Mike Bast, John DeSoto, Jim Fishback, Sonny Nutter, Dave Aldana and Steve Baker in chatting with guests in a huge night of historic “bench racing.”

Established by three-time U.S. Open National Speedway champion Woods and a superb Board of Directors, the “Hot Shoe” Hall of Fame Museum was founded in 2020 to pay tribute to the daredevil racers and their colorful careers and achievements as well as motorcycle industry leaders and icons.

The “Hot Shoe” is the symbol that recognizes the cream of the crop of motorcycle racing stars who used a very specialized tool, the steel shoe, to assist them in navigating the dirt track corners at very high rates of speed. Steel show equipped riders quickly became known as “Hot Shoes” in local and national events and markets where they competed.

In addition, the highly acclaimed feature film, “On Any Sunday II,” the follow-up to Bruce Brown’s legendary “On Any Sunday” movie, will be shown to attendees at the Notoriety Theatre on Jan. 28 and features a numerous list of the “Hot Shoe” Hall of Fame inductees.

“Our third annual ‘Hot Shoe Hall of Fame’ celebration on Jan. 28 will continue the popular festivities that we have enjoyed the past two years in Las Vegas,” said Woods. “Matched up with annual Mecum Motorcycle Auction in Las Vegas, our event has proven to be fun and a great night of ‘bench racing’ for the honorees, industry people and motorcycle fans. And it’s free to all who attend.”

Special discount rates for the third annual “Hot Shoe Hall of Fame” celebration with many of the Fremont Street hotels will be announced in near future with “Hot Shoe” promo codes for the attendees.

“We have former stars from all forms of the motorcycle industry including flat track, speedway, motocross, desert, extreme sports and trials competition,” said Woods. “The event has brought together many of the greatest motorcycle racers and industry leaders of our sport. We get some incredible feedback from our attendees and honorees every year. And we are excited about this year’s presentation.”

In addition, some of the motorcycle racing’s most legendary machinery also will be display for an up-close view by the attendees.

Located on the Fabulous Fremont Street in Las Vegas, the “Hot Shoe” Hall of Fame is part of the Las Vegas Fremont Experience and adjacent to the Gene Woods Racing Experience Indoor Electric Race Car Track (450 E.Fremont St., #171, Las Vegas). For those accepted into the Hall of Fame, the honorees’ “Hot Shoe” is mounted on a Hall of Fame plaque. Recipients also receive their own version 8x10 plaque.

“Each year has been so much fun to speak with all of the motorcycle friends over the years,” said Roberts. Gene and ‘Hot Shoe’ Hall of Fame put on a great event. You don’t get a chance to go back and talk with the racers like we have at this event.”

“It’s such a blast to visit with all of the old friends in motorcycle racing at the ‘Hot Shoe’ night,” said Fishback, a former motorcycle star in desert, motocross and speedway racing. “It’s like revisiting the best times of your life. It brought us all together so we could meet each other again some 40 or 50 years later. It’s a night to remember. I want to thank Gene and the ‘Hot Shoe’ Hall of Fame!”

The Jan. 28 “Hot Shoe” Hall of Fame event begins with the motorcycle display at 4 p.m. Doors to the Notoriety Theatre open at 6 p.m. and the event runs to 10 p.m.
