The 1975 AMA Grand National Champion was one of the top riders in the category in the ‘70s and early ‘80s, winning 19 Grand National races and finishing runner-up for the title a remarkable five times. Scott was named AMA Rookie of the Year in 1972, besting future AMA Hall of Famers Kenny Roberts and Mike Kidd. In one of the greatest rookie seasons on record, Scott qualified his privately entered Triumph for 21 of 24 national events, won two outright and finished runner-up in the title quest to factory Harley-Davidson rider Mark Brelsford. Scott finished second again in 1973 and ’74 before breaking through as a factory Harley-Davidson rider in 1975, ahead of Roberts and a young Jay Springsteen. In all, Scott finished in the Grand National Top 10 for 12 straight years. Although his results began to tail off after a six-win 1977, he had one more great season. In 1981, he finished just five points short of Kidd for the GN title. Scott was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame in 1998.
