AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series kicks off during Bike Week

January 11, 2013

PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series kicks off its 2013 season on March 9 in Savannah, Ga. The popular series features period-correct vintage dirt-track motorcycles and exciting handlebar-to-handlebar racing action.

"The American Motorcyclist Association has a long and rich history in dirt-track racing, dating to the original factory Class-A competition in the 1920s," said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. "When the Class-C production-based format made its debut, the sport's popularity grew, laying the foundation for modern competition. We're excited to continue paying tribute to our past with this series, and we're looking forward to another action-packed season of racing for our amateur competitors."

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 AMA-sanctioned disciplines.

Class rules and equipment regulations, updated and improved for 2013, are available at www.americanmotorcyclist.com/racing/rules. The full series schedule is below.

The first three rounds of the 2013 AMA Vintage National Dirt Track Championship Series are part of an extensive dirt-track program in southern Georgia and Florida during Daytona Bike Week.

Following Bike Week, the 12-round series travels through Alabama, Illinois, New York, Ohio and Indiana before the finale in Cuddebackville, N.Y., on Sept. 21.

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.
