PICKERINGTON, Ohio — Racers planning to compete at 2018 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days have only until July 1 to complete their early registration and receive a reduced pre-event rate for hare scrambles, motocross, flat track, road racing and trials.

The flat track competition is a round of the AMA Vintage Flat Track National Championship Series and will be at the Ashland County Fairgrounds in nearby Ashland, Ohio.
The road racing competition is being organized by WERA.
"Each year, hundreds of racers participate in the racing during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days," said AMA Racing Projects Manager Alex Hunter. "For those planning to compete this year, pre-registration cuts down on the race-day lines and saves them money as well. Pre-entry counts are up this year, and we hope even more racers will take advantage of pre-registration before it closes after July 1."
Competitors may register by visiting the racing section of the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days website and then select the racing discipline that they wish to enter: www.amavintagemotorcycledays.com/page/vintage-racing-2018.
Registration also will be available at the track for $10 more. Pre-registration is available for Biltwell Pit Bike Racing, but it is not eligible for the discount.
Participants may register early for the Biltwell Pit Bike races, but will not receive a discount. For the Biltwell Holeshot Challenge, no online pre-event registration is available. Riders must register in person 5-7 p.m. July 7.
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, the nation's premier vintage motorcycling event, includes racing, bike shows, live music at the Old Bike Barn Crossroads stage, seminars and motorcycle attractions.
The AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days Swap Meet, brought to you by Federal Motorcycle Transport, brings hundreds of vendors together to sell, buy or trade bikes, parts and memorabilia.
The event also features the AMA Vintage Grand Championship, which features road racing, motocross, hare scrambles, trials and dirt-track racing.
Current production bikes will be on hand for display and demo rides.
