2013 Flat Track Calendar
OXNARD, CA - This summer Speedway Bikes make their historic return to the Ventura Raceway. On June 29th, the fifth-mile high banked oval will feature a round of the AMA National Speedway Championship. Speedway Bikes have a tremendous history at Ventura dating back to the early 70s where Tuesday night Speedway was a staple for Southern California motorcycle racers and fans. Some of the most famous names in Speedway have graced “The Commotion by the Ocean” including 8-time AMA Speedway national champion and 2 time world champion Greg Hancock, who won the 1994 American Final at Ventura; 5-time national champion Billy Hamill, and local favorite Eddie Castro. Speedway Bikes have been featured in exhibitions recently at Ventura but this will be the first complete Speedway show since 2000.
Speedway Bike racing is one of the most unique forms of racing on the planet. Powered by a 500cc, single cylinder engine, Speedway Bikes have no gears and no brakes. Each race is started from a standing start and when the starting line tapes go up, the riders drop the clutch and the race begins.
The 16 rider field is yet to be determined but will likely include Hamill, who is also the defending champion, three-time national champion Billy Janniro, and last year’s runner-up Charlie Venegas. 14 riders will receive automatic seeds into the round with the final 2 spots to be determined in a run-off to be held the night of the event. The 2013 AMA Series is presented by noted Speedway promoter and US World Cup team manager, Steve Evans. The series will run using an identical race format to the Speedway Grand Prix Series.
In addition to the AMA national championship round, this night will feature a support division, a vintage speedway class, a 250cc junior speedway class, and a 150cc junior speedway class. Ticket information for this event will be available at a later date. Speedway Bikes return to Ventura Raceway for the first time in 4 years and the best of the best will battle for a national championship.

Hey everyone, I hope you all are getting ready for some good fun out at the Spokane Speedway flattrack! Our first events are just around the corner!
There has been some confusion as to what times our first two races are going to be on April 20th & 21st, as I guess I did not clarify that very good on our new race event posters. My bad!! Sorry!
Both of those races on April 20th & 21st are going to be DAY races, with gates opening at 9AM, Practice at 11AM, and racing at 12 noon both days!
Every other race after that for the rest of the summer is a night race!
Plus our first open practice on April 13th is coming up soon too, and it will start at 3pm and go until 8pm!
Anyone needing some race posters to hang up here or there, please see me at the first practice or whenever and I'll get you some!
Remember, our first race event is a double header weekend on April 20th & 21st, with both of those events being DAY races! Two complete days of racing, as the first day is a shorttrack race, then the second day is a TT race (which the 21st is also "Ladies Day" at the races, which is FREE general admission for the ladies!)
Please help me get the word out on this. Thanks and I'll see ya at the track soon!
American Supercamp Making Big Changes for 2013
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (November 8, 2012)- Lead officials at American Supercamp are always looking for ways to improve their establishment by coming up with different ideas that will benefit the camp's overall value. Beginning in 2013, American Supercamp will now be offering a new opportunity that divides those who want to see what American Supercamp is all about and those just looking for a little tune up. For the first time in 16 years, American Supercamp will offer two types of one-day programs.The first change to American Supercamp will be providing a one-day intro to the camp. This program will be a full day of riding with students experiencing a little bit of everything we do at our two-day camp. Though each participant won't get as much out of this camp as they would our normal two-day camp, the price of admission and time spent will still be a solid bang for their buck as this camp is cheaper and takes up less time than the normal two-day camp."Over the last few years, we have been doing more and more one-day programs, mostly for our corporate groups and our one-on-one training," said Danny Walker, founder of American Supercamp. "What we have found is that we can give folks a great experience without putting the financial burden and time constraints that may sometimes occur with the typical two-day camps that we offer."The second one day program we are putting in to action in 2013 is our Repeat student Only! "Retread Camp". This is a more competitive camp and is precisely what the title states as this camp requires students to have previously attended American Supercamp at least once in the past. This camp will contain a lot of riding and a quick overview of some of our favorite drills.For those students who are still interested in our two-day camp, have no fear as this camp will still run at each of our locations. American Supercamp has simply broadened its realm of opportunity for all motorcycle riding enthusiasts across the US.
