In less than 12 hours, The Rolling Thunder Show will take to the track at the Colonial Downs Raceway in New Kent, VA. for the running of the Virginia Mega Mile in round 9 of the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles Grand National Championship season.
With this being a new venue for the series, it will be game on and roll the dice for the series' stars as they try to figure out the necessary set-up for the 1 1/4 mile facility. Everyone will be on a level playing field in trying to determine what set-up is the needed combination in order to come out on top after the day's events are concluded and you can bet, as always, that the action on the track will be it's usual on the edge show.
First practice rolls off at 10:15 AM EDT as the local noise and neighborhood ordinances will take precedence in getting the event concluded before the curfew time of 5:00 PM EDT in order to satisfy the locals in town.
In the shot above from last week's Indy Mile, Jared Mees on the #1 Rogers Racing H-D XR750, Henry Wiles on the #17 Lloyd Brothers Motorsports XR, Steve Bonsey on the #80 Zanotti Racing XR, Brad Baker on the #12 Dodge Brothers Racing XR, JD Beach on the #95 TJ Burnett Farms Kawasaki and eventual winner Bryan Smith on the #42 Howerton Motorsports Kawasaki get ready to go out for their sighting lap prior to the 25-lap National main at the Indiana State Fairgrounds-hosted event.
