Pomona, Calif. (September 19, 2013) - Less than 30 days remain until the Law Tigers AMA Pro Flat Track Finals, brought to you locally by Pomona Valley Harley-Davidson and Glendale Harley-Davidson, roars off the start line, Saturday, October 12th at the Fairplex.
With the 2013 Grand National Championship on the line, this spectacular race will definitely feature non-stop high speeds and handlebar-to handlebar action as the top flat track racers in the world go for the gold.
With just one race to go before Pomona, Brad Baker is leading the field by a mere 10 points.
Hailing from Dryad, Wash, Baker has been on a charge all season long. Earning 5 podium finishes and four top 10’s, Baker is determined to bring home this year’s title. However, he is going to have to fight off Bryan Smith and Brandon Robinson who have the exact same goal.
And these are only three of the competitors in this, the final race of the season. Fans will get to see an incredible night of intense, ground-pumping action that will crown both the AMA Pro Racing Flat Track Grand National Champion and the AMA Pro Singles Champion.
Not only will this race pit rider against rider, but it will also pit machine against machine. Back in the 1950’s Harley-Davidson battled BSA, Triumph and Indian. Today, eligible bikes include Aprilia, BMW, Harley-Davidson, Buell, Ducati, Honda, KTM, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Triumph and Yamaha.
Hitting speeds up to 130 mph and racing handlebar-to-handlebar, flat track racing is indeed the most exciting form of two-wheel racing in America today. There is no time to coast, no time to try and figure out strategy. It is sheer go-for-it from beginning to end.
Adding more excitement, will be the inaugural Super Long Track Speedway Bike Invitational. The exhibition from 2012 was a fan favorite, so it has been brought it back as a thrilling addition to the evening's schedule, complete with heats and Main.
And that is not all. Scheduled from 3pm-6pm is the Gasser Customs Vintage Ride-In and Show & Shine. Ride your vintage bike ride and enjoy free parking right in front plus take part in the vintage bike show! Awards will be given for the best of the best but all bikes in any shape or condition are welcome to participate. If you enjoy vintage bikes, you will want to see this show.
Another highlight will be the Ascot Reunion which will take place inside the gates to the event near the Legends Autograph section from 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm ... Come out and see some bikes from the ASCOT era, meet and hear stories by the riders who made ASCOT.
Come early and hear the live music, visit the vendor’s area and watch practice. It will definitely be a day to remember and the event not to be missed.
