Don Rainey Honored at Houston Supercross
 The Legends & Heroes Motocross Tour honored ”Diamond” Don Rainey, owner of The Historic Jefferson Railway, on February 12 at the Houston Supercross.  He was recognized as one of the pioneers of motocross for his contributions to the sport.  Onstage before an audience of 40,000 people, Rainey told the story of the early days of the great evolution of Motocross and the Mugan Honda.
 
Gary Bailey and Steve Wise presented the award to Don.  Bailey was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999 and he was the first American to beat the Europeans in motocross.  Bailey will be the weekend legend at the 9th Annual Diamond Don’s National Vintage Motocross event to be held in Jefferson April 15-17. 

 
Wise will go down in history as one of the most multi-talented riders in the history of motorcycle racing. Wise earned the distinction of becoming the only rider in history to win AMA motocross, AMA Supercross and AMA Superbike nationals.

Diamond Don Rainey began his racing career in 1968 on a DT One Yamaha.  He bought first “real” race bike, a 1969 Husquvarna, when he joined the H&H Music Racing team in 1969 where he raced for about five years. 
 
 
In 1971, he was the first Texan to race in California.  In 1972, he promoted the first night race at Meyers Speedway in Houston.  Racing in the Astrodome was a career highlight.

One of his greatest friendships was with Al Baker whom he met while racing the InterAms and TransAms.  Al was the racing director for Kawasaki from 1972 until about 1975.  Don was on Al Baker’s race team at the final checkpoint when Al won the Baja 1000 in 1982.  Diamond had the pleasure of following him in across the finish line.
 
Rainey retired from professional racing in the early 1980’s but took up vintage racing when he turned 53 and still races today in the 60+ expert class as a member of AHRMA.
 
About the Tour
The Legends & Heroes Motocross Tour is a professional historical display and time-line of America’s greatest motorsport.  The tour includes the machines and the champs of Motocross. The project was conceived by a dedicated group of Motocross Enthusiasts who, over the years, have discovered the value of the rich 40+ years of Motocross legacy and its impact on the American motorsports history. “The dedication and passion of the sport has brought the Legends & Heroes Motocross Tour to the next level of sharing this legacy, the history of the machines and men, as well as the women of Motocross. The history of the Classic Iron and its' champions is a dynamic model ever changing. We see this rich history as a great learning lab for all ages” according to Alex Moroz the tour’s managing partner.
