Personal News Cycle | February 23, 2022

Bill Dill, who owned and ran the New England-based 3D Racing Yamaha team in Monster Energy AMA Supercross and Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross, died Saturday night, Feb. 19, after battling brain cancer.

Bill Dill, owner and operator of the 3D Racing Yamaha team for over 20 years, has died after battling brain cancer for over a year.

As the team’s owner for over 20 years, many future stars have passed through his organization, including Keith Johnson, Kelly Smith and Jason Thomas.

Dill’s daughter Kailyn said via social media: “It is with a very heavy heart that I must announce the passing of the man himself, Bill Dill. There is nothing that meant more to him, his team and his motorcycle family, he left a permanent mark on the motorcycle industry and touched so many lives.

“This afternoon, as I watched qualifying with myself, my sister and my family by his side, my father left this world and flew to heaven. My father lived harder than anyone than I’ve ever met, he worked hard and played harder, he lived the lifestyle most of us only dream of. There are absolutely no words to express the sadness I I’m feeling and I’m not sure how I’m going to navigate a life without my best friend, but I find peace knowing he’s warm, riding his bike, drinking tequila, enjoying sunshine, no pain. You won the race dad, number 35 forever.

“When it comes to racing, I made a promise to my father, his legacy will live on and the 3D Racing flag will continue to fly.” NC
