The American Motorcyclist Association’s Motorcycle Hall of Fame announces that, due to an error in the Hall of Fame balloting process, Derek "Nobby" Clark will not be inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2012, as was previously announced on June 11.
"This is unfortunate, but Mr. Clark’s name should not have been on the ballot," said Jeffrey V. Heininger, chairman of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, which oversees the selection process for Hall of Fame nominees. "We sincerely regret this error and I have apologized to Mr. Clark on behalf of the Hall of Fame."
"This was a difficult decision, but it had to be made to ensure the integrity of this remarkable institution," said Heininger. "We are undertaking a thorough review of our nomination process and its implementation going forward."
