“In the early days of American motocross, announcer Larry Huffman could be heard everywhere: Saddleback Park, Angel Stadium, Carlsbad Raceway, Ascot Park, the LA Coliseum,” the press release said. “It was Huffman, a radio disc jockey, who announced the first Superbowl of Motocross in 1972, instantly becoming an integral part of what we now know as supercross, and his unmistakable voice could be heard over the loudspeakers of stadiums and racetracks for many years to come. He was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2008, and deservedly so, as his voice and enthusiasm set the standard for every race announcer that’s come along ever since.

“He may have been nicknamed “Supermouth,” but Larry Huffman will be remembered as much for his showmanship as his voice, as much for his passion as his humor, and always for his kindness.”

He is considered one of the greatest announcers in the history of off road motorcycle racing.
