I was on a business trip outside of Atlanta and, while trying to find a customers' address, I thought I saw a street sign that read "Bob Hannah Boulevard". Google maps lists a Bob Hannah Circle and Bob Hannah Drive. Anyway, I thought it was interesting to see a former MX stars name in ordinary, everyday life. Any other former, or current, MX stars have anything similar (not a product) named after them? Sorry, grainy pic.

While it would be nice for it to be named after him, Hannah is a pretty standard southern name and might be fore the local farmer or school teacher in the area.

Or it could be this former actor...

Bob Hannah, Atlanta, GA - died August 14th 1996 of a heart attack

Bob Hannah played supporting roles in a number of major dramas during the '80s and early '90s. He specialized in playing Southerners in films such as Norma Rae (1979), Coal Miner's Daughter (1980), Driving Miss Daisey (1986), and Fried Green Tomatoes (1991), where he played a defense attorney.

1980's Motocross was the best! It was Heaven and we never knew it!

I can't believe what I'm reading.....one of those roads (Bob Hannah Circle or Bob Hannah Dr.) has to be named after the Hurricane!

I figured - I remember hearing something about one of the things Hannah liked about the RA round of the Trans-AMA was being able to get some Chick-Fil-A

Just a little more on Bob Hannah circle in lilburn GA.
A super fast local georgia racer Marvin Mcdaniel once lived on that road. I asked about the street name but it was given that name years before our Hannah was star.
