The remarkable Ronnie Jones started racing professionally in the 1970s and officially retired in the 1990s, yet remains fast enough to give the top Progressive AFT racers a run for their money to this day. Jones sold newspapers and washed cars as a youngster to scrape together enough cash to buy a bike and go racing. Clearly, it worked out well for him… Jones was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2016 on the strength of the ten GNC Main Event wins and 32 podium finishes he logged between 1980 and 1995. Despite his perennial privateer status, Jones finished inside the top ten in the Grand National Championship standings every season between 1985 and 1995 and held a points-scoring streak that extended beyond two decades. In 1990 and 1991, the Oklahoman finished third in the championship, trailing only the legendary Scott Parker and Chris Carr. Five times he finished as the race runner-up at a Mile -- the final discipline he needs to conquer in order to complete the career Grand Slam. Perhaps that missing piece to his racing résumé served as motivation to continue to compete in select Progressive AFT events into his sixties Or perhaps it’s just that he’s remained plenty capable, so why not? Jones earned top-ten Mission SuperTwins finishes in both 2018 and 2019 -- both on Miles, incidentally. In 2021, Jones swept both rounds of the Bultaco Astro Invitational at the Volusia Half-Mile going away.
