For 2016, with the generous support of Suzuki Motor of America, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days honors the career of Suzuki rider and AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Wes Cooley. The infield display, Celebrating 40 Years of AMA Superbikes, presented by Suzuki, will showcase the rich history of AMA Superbike racing with a number of historic championship-winning machines. The central piece of the display will be Cooley's 1980 championship-winning GS1000, which Cooley will ride in demonstration laps around the road race course each day.
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days features the Moto Armory AMA Off-Road Vintage Grand Championship, including vintage and post-vintage motocross, hare scrambles and trials, as well as vintage and post-vintage road racing on Mid-Ohio's road race course and dirt-track racing at the nearby Ashland County Fairgrounds sponsored by Nationwide Insurance. Mini road racing and a pit bike race also will be held during the event.
The weekend includes North America's largest motorcycle swap meet sponsored by Federal Motorcycle Transport, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Bike Show presented by Old Bike Barn, the American Motor Drome Wall of Death, a classic motorcycle field meet, demo rides of current production bikes, seminars, live music, raffle bikes, a beer garden with the region's best craft beers, and displays of AMA clubs and custom bike builders.
