Daytona Bike Week to feature AMA amateur dirt-track racing

January 09, 2013

One of the biggest weekends in motorcycling -- Daytona Bike Week -- will include several opportunities for AMA amateur dirt-track racers to compete in half-mile and short-track events, including the Daytona Flat Track limestone oval, March 8-12 in Georgia and Florida.

In addition to events in the AMA All-Star Flat Track National Championship Series, the week will feature AMA Amateur Dirt-Track Holeshot races and rounds of the AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series. In all, youth, vet/senior, the next generation's stars and vintage racers will line up to compete during one of amateur dirt track's biggest weekends.

"Motorcyclists from all disciplines converge on Daytona Bike Week for good reason: In early March, this is racing central," said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. "Dirt track is no exception, and we're looking forward to kicking off the season with some great racing at one of the country's most historic locations for motorcycle competition."

Promoters Steve Nace of Steve Nace Racing and Dave Joiner of Fast Fridays are working with the AMA to ensure the AMA amateur dirt-track events are run smoothly and provide all the excitement of a national-level event, from pre-entry to the podium celebration.

About the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation

Founded in 1990 by the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, the goal of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame is to tell the stories and preserve the history of motorcycling. Located on the campus of the American Motorcyclist Association in Pickerington, Ohio, the Hall of Fame's three major exhibition halls feature the machines and memorabilia of those who have contributed notably to the sport. The Motorcycle Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to motorcycling, including those known for their contributions to road riding, off-road riding and all categories of racing, as well as those who have excelled in business, history, design and engineering. More information can be found at MotorcycleMuseum.org.
