I have been fortunate enough to have worked in motorcycle racing long enough to have seen all three Hayden boys – Tommy, Nicky and Roger – win races and championships. And with all that came the added bonus of getting to know Earl Hayden, who was quite simply a good man.

Earl Hayden passed away yesterday at the age of 74 after a long bout with cancer that he spoke openly about in this interview I did with him in October of 2012 at NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans. To read the interview in its entirety, click on the link below.
