AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series kicks off March 8

December 30, 2013

Racers of classic dirt-track racing motorcycles will begin their hunt for 2014 titles on March 8 in Savannah, Ga., when the AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship kicks off with its first of 13 rounds.

"Motorcycle dirt-track racing is one of motorsports' great historic disciplines, and the AMA is honored to support the vibrant community of vintage dirt trackers with national championship recognition," said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. "The AMA has a rich history in the sport, dating to the original factory Class-A racing in the 1920s and the Class-C production-based format that continues today. The motorcycles that helped write that history are amazing machines, and it's thrilling to see many of them still on the track, competing for AMA national No. 1 plates."

The AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series recognizes national champions in period-correct classes that reflect the storied history of AMA dirt-track competition. Class winners are honored at the annual AMA Championship Banquet, which recognizes national champions in all amateur racing disciplines.

Class rules and equipment regulations are available at www.americanmotorcyclist.com > National Championship Series > AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series. The full series schedule is below.

The first three rounds of the 2014 AMA Vintage National Dirt Track Championship Series run in conjunction with the AMA-sanctioned amateur dirt-track program that has grown up around Daytona Bike Week.

Following Bike Week, the 13-round series travels through Illinois, North Carolina, New York, Ohio and Indiana before returning to New York for the Sept. 21 finale in Cuddebackville.
