Action sports renaissance man, freestyle motocross pioneer and co-founder of the Hart & Huntington tattoo empire, Carey Hart is appearing at the 2012 Progressive International Motorcycle Shows stop at the Dallas Convention Center Friday, November 9, and Saturday, November 10.
The TV personality and inventor of the revolutionary Hart Attack — he introduced the backflip to the world of FMX — will be on hand to greet fans and sign autographs on Friday, November 9, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturday, November 10, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., at the Pit Stop stage.

The two have teamed up to form Dodge/Sycuan Casino/RCH Racing, a team that includes racers Broc Tickle and Josh Hill.
