Auto Racing Hall of Fame member Joe Leonard, like the late John Surtees, was not only an open-wheel car ace, but started his career as a great motorcyclist, winning 27 American Motorcycle Association "national" events, including the Daytona 200 on two occasions. Three times he’d win the AMA championship, and five other times finish in the top three before switching to cars.

RIP Joe Leonard. I remember him mainly for his AMA flat track days, where he was a fierce competitor and a great champion. His USAC career was more of a journeyman thing, despite several points championships.
