Danny Wall was recently inducted into the Texas Bicycle Motocross Hall of Fame. Wall, a 49-year old remodeling contractor, is one of the state’s pioneering BMX racers in the late 1970s and 80s according to the Amarillo Globe-News.
Over his career, Wall was on the cover of BMX Plus! magazine in 1979, won the 1979 American Bicycle Association Grand Nationals and the National Bicycle League Grand Nationals, and he said too many others to count.
Wall’s passions have changed in the last 35 years. His top priority is helping his kids succeed. He began racing again with his 14-year-old son Caleb Wall, about five years ago. Wall said this is a good time to get into BMX racing because colleges are starting BMX programs and scholarships are available. His oldest daughter Madison Wall, 17, is a highly competitive member of the Tascosa High volleyball team, and his 10-year-old daughter Sara is a “little livewire” who plays soccer, he said.
“The main objective is to make sure my kids get to where they need to go,” he said.
