Dale Singleton (1955-1985) - The Flying Pig Farmer

Dale Singleton was one of the greatest racing heroes that most of us have never known. In his short career, he accumulated a staggering number of motorcycle racing wins both on amateur and professional circuits. Known as "The Flying Pig Farmer," Dale fueled his success by a pure passion for the sport and raced as a privateer against major sponsored teams. His professional career was hallmarked by winning the Daytona 200 in 1979 and again 1981. Dale was working toward building a new career in stock car racing when his life was tragically cut short in a plane crash in South Carolina.

Dale's legend continues to inspire us today and the friends and family of Dale have assembled this web site to share his story. We hope you enjoy it.

Out in Front

dale singleton on track number 6What was it that enabled Dale Singleton to be so successful on the track? By most standards, his bike was slower and heavier than his competitors, his operating budget was smaller, and his crew was less experienced. The question of success is one that piques curiosity not only in motorcycle racing, but in any competitive arena. We all have challenges we face and try to overcome; sometimes with success, but all too often falling short. Looking back 30 years to what Dale had to overcome and how he mustered win after win begs us to look at the roots of what makes a man a "hero".

Dale's Last Ride

The last bike Dale raced before moving to 4 wheels might be going up for sale in 2014. Dale's 1979 Yamaha TZ750, which was retired in 1982, has been in storage for over 30 years with only a handful of public appearances. The bike was fully restored in the mid 1990's by Dale's younger brother, Spencer Singleton, as a tribute to the racing legacy of Dale Singleton.
