Track - 2013 - Indianapolis Motor Speedway

NEWS February 27, 2013


Indianapolis Motor Speedway, also known as “The Brickyard,” is one of the most historic venues in all of motorsports. The 2.5-mile oval put on its first motorized event on August 14, 1909, which also happened to be a motorcycle race. Now every August, motorcycle enthusiasts across the globe unite at the speedway to participate in the celebration of incredible speed and competition. In 2011, Indianapolis Motor Speedway invited GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing and the Harley-Davidson XR1200s featured in the AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series to take part in the Red Bull Indianapolis GP weekend, and the thundering twins were featured in their first doubleheader event weekend alongside the stars of MotoGP. After successful runnings in 2011 and 2012, GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing is proud to bring the Harleys back for a third straight year, with the thundering twins scheduled to hit the bricks on the weekend of August 16-18, 2013.
In last year’s contest, Kyle Wyman took the first of two races on the weekend. Wyman benefitted from a bit of his own good luck -- and other riders’ misfortune -- as a pile-up on lap six took out many of the front-runners. On Sunday, in front of a solid race-day crowd, Tyler O’Hara was crowned victor of race two after an impressive ten-lap shootout.
