News from across the pond!

Round 2 of the DTRA season is this weekend and is part of the "MCN Festival of Motorcycling" at the Peterborough Arena.

I've attached a write up of the opening round from Leicester. PDF

It was a great day with record race entries and some very competitive racing.

Well, the Springfield Mile is in the books, and while most of the top GNC teams are heading out west to Sacramento, California, for the Grand National Mile on May 30, several top riders – AMA National #1 Jared Mees, AMA National #23 Jeffrey Carver, AMA National #27 Rob Pearson among them - are heading to Plymouth, Wisconsin, for the May 29th Dairyland Classic first!  How cool is that?  And damn near unprecedented, which goes to show how highly the top stars of the Grand National Championship appreciate what we do each year!  Several riders whose team owners won’t let them come to Plymouth the night before Sacramento have each expressed their condolences, with several citing the Dairyland Classic as “the best non-National of the year”!

Tomorrow night, I will be promoting the upcoming Dairyland Classic on the Flat Track Weekly Radio program, 7pm CST (8pm EST).  You can hear it online Tuesday evening.  I am currently slated to join the show at the 7:15pm CST mark.  The show is hosted by current AMA National #65 Cory Texter and former AMA National #43 Scottie Deubler (who also does the announcing at all AMA Grand National events).

The Sheboygan County Fair Park has invested a LOT into upgrading the facility this year!  New track prep equipment, several inches of fresh new clay, we are looking forward to another great event on Friday in our second race on the recently reconfigured track!

My family and I thank you for your support of our efforts to continue presenting Wisconsin’s premier dirt track motorcycle racing event, and we look forward to seeing you THIS FRIDAY!

An afternoon with Nicky

                                                                                                                                              Photos and text by Jamey



Spotted at Perris Raceway on Friday the 13th, was Nicky Hayden burning laps on the 1/4 mile oval. Hayden who was out of the country for Moto-GP  testing last week returned to sunny California this week for some fun and relaxation before heading back to Europe next week. What to do? Dirt Track where his roots lie was the answer, hence Nicky grabbed his gear and headed to Perris where some top GNC riders were spending time testing suspension with Race-Tech's  Jimmy Wood. On hand was the current Grand National Champion Jared Mees along with National #7 Sammy Halbert, National #54 (2 time Daytona short track winner) Mikey Rush and National #98 Kayl Kolkman. The GNC riders were getting ready for the opening two rounds of their series which kicks off at Daytona in March. Nicky; he was just having fun and staying in shape.










February 14th - PROS




Kayl Kolkman 98, lead the first few laps until he got sideways and Sammy tagged him and they both went down.





Mike Rush 54, lead the restart until he was black flagged for his pipe hanging off the bike.





Sammy and Davis Fisher 67m, had a great race, passing each other until Fisher pulled away in the closing laps.



Look close, Sammy is on the outside!

Indians at Volusia



I thought that you might enjoy seeing this.  We still bring out the seven 1949 Indian Arrows annually.  This year we ran the Volusia short track during Bike Week.  The riders raced them hard and put on a close and excellent show.  Yet, nobody fell and we went hope with seven running machines!  The riders are:

1.  David Aldana (no mistaking those leathers!)

2.  Timmy Mitchell

3.  Joe Baggott

4.  Chris Carr (someone said he had ridden in a few of these flat track races before)

5.  Shane Fox

6.  Beau Braswell (sings the new country "flat track" theme song)

7.  Charlie Seale (another former national number)

The photo with the riders mounted was taken in staging just before the riders went out for their first heat race.  The other photo was taken right after the main.  Fans came out of the stands and applauded as the riders dismounted.  They put on a great race.

Best Regards,

Mike O'Neil
