Trailblazers Hall of Famer 2018: Scott Autrey

John Burns
by John Burns

Southern California golden boy turned Speedway World Champion, Scott Autrey was also a successful dirt tracker and road racer before taking his act to England, where he raced Speedway professionally for a decade. In 1982, that culminated in his leading the American team – including Bruce Penhall and Bobby Boogaloo Schwartz – to the Speedway World Championship. That hasn’t happened before or since. A great guy as well as a great motorcycle rider, Scott’s induction into the Trailblazers HOF drew a crowd, many from England and Scotland. Good on ya, laddie.
