country's premier annual celebration of vintage motorcycling. AMA Vintage
Motorcycle Days will take place on July 19-21 at the world-class Mid-Ohio Sports
Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
"AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is a yearly must-do for motorcyclists from
the Midwest and beyond, so we wanted to get the 2013 date out with plenty of
time for riders to make plans," said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman.
"AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is unique in the world of motorcycling in
that all makes and models of vintage bikes -- and all riders -- are celebrated
in a three-day event that brings out the best of motorcycling. I hope to see
Added Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course President Craig Rust: "This event has
such a rich history, and over the years it has become a fan favorite. No other
event on our schedule transforms the facility or uses the grounds like AMA
Vintage Motorcycle Days. It truly is a unique event!"
A fundraiser for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days
features classic motorcycles of all makes and styles, and honors the riders who
made them famous. Activities include the AMA Racing Vintage Grand
Championships, which feature roadracing, motocross, hare scrambles, trials and
dirt-track; North America's largest motorcycle swap meet; bike shows and
awards; stunt shows; demo rides of current production bikes; and seminars on a
number of topics by noted motorcycling experts.
All proceeds from AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days benefit the AMA Motorcycle Hall
of Fame. The goal of the Hall of Fame, located on the AMA campus in
Pickerington, Ohio, is to tell the stories and preserve the history of
motorcycling's legends and heroes. For more information, call (614) 856-2222,
