    I read about this on MXA site, from their article:

    "Dick “Bugsy” Mann was one of the most versatile motorcycles racers in AMA road race, dirt track, motocross, short track or ISDT competition. A two-time AMA Grand National Champion, Mann was one of the very few riders to compete on the national level in dirt track, road racing and motocross. When he retired from professional racing in 1974, Mann was second on the all-time AMA Grand National Series wins list with 24 national victories and had competing successfully from the early 1950s to the mid-70s."

    "In 1971, Mann became the first rider to complete motorcycle racing’s Grand Slam, winning in all forms of AMA Grand National Championship racing: mile, half-mile, short track, TT and road racing. Dick was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, on June 13, 1934."
