In the 1985 World Supercross Finals at the LA Coliseum, the top two finishers in each heat race were supposed to start the Main Event in a second row behind the slower qualifiers. This led to faster riders sandbagging to get a front row start.

Into this controversy stepped a young Ricky Johnson who summoned the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. and Rocky Balboa to deliver one of the greatest speeches in human (or at least motocross) history.

I didn't include what happened in the final heat race between RJ's interview and his speech when Jeff Ward hid behind the peristyle, out of sight from the fans, to go from 1st to 3rd.
