Monty began racing in 1970 when he was only nine years old and proceeded to win multiple championships on both four-wheels and two-wheels.
Due to a critical heart condition Monty has required a total of five open heart surgeries from 1990 to date. It’s because of this heart condition that in 2008, Monty again developed serious heart issues, which resulted in his second open heart surgery. His doctors made it clear to him that racing would have to be put on the back burner until he fully recovered, which caused him to take a mandatory leave from his racing. As soon as he was given the go-ahead by his doctors, Monty, with an amazing show of determination coupled with his love of racing, once again returned to racing motorcycles, but this time his interest led him to Supermoto followed by flat track racing in which he continues to dominate today.
Today, Monty Klein is considered one of the fastest 30+ amateur riders in the country. He is also the only motorcycle racer/race car driver to compete in three different racing disciplines at the Daytona International Speedway (AMA Amateur Supercross; NASCAR Goody’s Dash Series; AMA Amateur Flat Track). In 2017, he competed in the AMA Dirt Track Amateur Grand National Championship in Du Quoin, Illinois, where he finished third in both the 30+ and 40+ classes. In 2021 and 2022, Monty was named the SDTA Florida State Championship taking 1st Place in 50+, 1st Place in 60+, 3rd Place in 30+, and 2nd Place in TT. In 2022, his experience, skill and determination won him the prestigious AMA Flat Track Grand National Championship in the 50+ Class!
