Kerry Kleid opened the doors for professional women motocross riders by becoming the first woman to possess an American Motorcyclist Association professional motocross license, as well as being inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame. She applied for the license in the 1970s so that she could enter an all-male racing competition. Although her request was initially denied, she eventually received the license, and consequently succeeded in progressing from the novice to expert class in less than a year at the age of 21. Kleid was also a highly respected member of the Metropolitan Sports Committee (MSC).
