Vurbmoto is saddened to report the passing of Bill Dill, who lost his battle with brain cancer on Saturday night.
Dill, a former racer, ran his 3D Racing Yamaha team for over 20 years helping support privateers in Monster Energy AMA Supercross and Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross, often helping riders from his native New England region.
The 3D Racing Yamaha team is supporting Devin Simonson in 2022. At the East Region opener in Minneapolis on Saturday he nearly made the main, finishing fifth in the LCQ. While Dill wasn’t in attendance, he was watching at home surrounded by friends and family.
The news of his passing was shared on the 3D Racing Yamaha team Instagram account by his daughter, Kailyn, who said the team will continue on.
It is with a very heavy heart I have to announce the passing of the man himself Bill Dill. There is nothing that meant more to him than his team and his moto family. He’s left a permanent foot print in the moto industry and has touched so many lives.
This afternoon, while watching qualifying with myself, sister, and family by his side my daddy left this world and rode away into the sky. My dad lived life harder than anyone I’ve ever met, he worked hard and played even harder, he lived the life style most of us only dream of. There’s absolutely no words to express the sadness I feel and I’m not too sure how I’m going to navigate my way through a life without my best friend but I find peace knowing he’s somewhere warm, riding his bike, drinking tequila, soaking up the sun, free of pain. You’ve won the race dad, #35 forever💙
As for racing goes, I made a promise to my daddy, his legacy will live on and the 3D Racing flag will continue to fly💙🏁
