RIP Al HolleySunday, March 24, 2013 | 9:15 PM
Racer X is saddened to hear of the passing of James "Al" Holley, a former professional flat track rider and the father of former factory Yamaha rider and current Supercross Live! host Jim Holley. Al Holley was well-known at the races, both for his skills as a mechanic and also for his guidance of many international riders as they made the transition to racing and training in the U.S.
After a long bout with illness, Al passed on Sunday evening with his family by his side. We will have more details on arrangements as they become available.
Godspeed, Al Holley.
