Orie Steele, Sr.
Motorcycle Hillclimb Champion

 

List of Victories

This is and accurate listing of the wins my grandfather accumulated during his career that I have documentation to prove. It is in no way near complete. There are many blanks to be filled in. If anyone has more information about wins please let me know. Thanks. 3-26-2001 - I had a long conversation with my cousin Glenn Steele, who went through various medals and let me know of a bunch more events. Some of them we are unsure of the class or the place, but I am listing them because he participated in those events.
