RIP Loretta Lynn

We are saddened to report the passing of country music icon Loretta Lynn.

In a statement provided to the Associated Press, Lynn’s family said she died Tuesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. She was 90.

While the world knows Loretta for her hit songs “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “The Pill,” and more, the motocross world knows Loretta and her Ranch for hosting the biggest amateur race in the entire world. 

In the 1980s race promotor Dave Coombs suggested Loretta’s iconic ranch as the host site and in 1982, the race made its debut. It has been hosted there ever since. 

Racer X has a really good history of the race, which you can listen to below.

RIP, Loretta.
