Project Update #6: AMA National Champion Steve Wise to be part of John Penton Film!

Posted by Todd Huffman

I was contacted yesterday by AMA legend, Steve Wise about his history with racing Penton's early in his career. He said his Penton was his secret weapon down in Texas and like others springboarded his MX career.

(From AMA HoF website) "Wise earned the distinction of becoming the only rider in history to win AMA motocross, AMA Supercross and AMA Superbike nationals. The Texan further proved his all-around talent by earning a podium result in the AMA Grand National Championship when he took third, in his very first Grand National Dirt Track appearance, at the Houston Astrodome TT National in 1982." He also won the famed "Superbikers" on ABC Wide World of Sports twice!

I asked Steve if he would consider being interviewed for the film if we were funded through Kickstarter and he said "Sure!". We will be so honored to have him join our cast of characters for this important story.
