Left coast fans of the AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship were rewarded last week when it was announced that the Sacramento Mile had been resurrected and that the race would return to the schedule on Saturday, July 26 for round 8 of the 2014 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season. Today the great folks who will be bringing you that iconic event on the schedule announced that tickets are now on sale.
With just over two months until The Rolling Thunder Show returns to the Cal-Expo Fairgrounds, now is the time to make your plans and get your tickets in hand as they will surely go fast and the event will undoubtedly be standing room only, as most of the big west coast venues usually are.
In the shot above, riders get ready to hit the track for the first time for the day at the Springfield Mile II in round 11 of the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.
(Back row) Briar Bauman on the #14 Monster Energy/Werner-Springsteen Racing Kawasaki, Rob Pearson on the #27 Weirbach Racing/Werner-Springsteen Racing Kawasaki, eventual Rookie of the Year Jake Shoemaker on his #55A Montgomeryville Cycle Center/Motion Pro Kawasaki, JD Beach on the #95 TJ Burnett Farms/Red Bull Kawasaki, and Jake Johnson on the #5 Lloyd Brothers Motorsports/Ramspur Winery Ducati 1098/1100 (no, it's NOT a 749 folks!) all get ready to head out for their first spin on the mile oval at the house of speed in Springfield.
(Background and front row) Henry Wiles on the #17 Lloyd Brothers Motorsports/Ramspur Winery sponsored/owned Harley-Davidson XR-750, Jared Mees on the #1 Rogers Racing/Blue Springs XR-750, eventual winner Brandon Robinson on the #44 TJ Burnett Farms/USC Racing Kawasaki, and eventual 2013 Grand National Champion Brad Baker on the #12 Dodge Brothers Racing/Sefnco Communications XR-750 get set to lead the first pack of fast guys out of the gate.
With the overall lack of west coast events being a hot topic, especially with the starving fans who readily support the greatest racing show on two wheels in the world in that area, now is the time to show your support and pick up your tickets for what will be another barn burner, and to see if Flyin' Bryan Smith can make it four in-a-row at the Sacto Mile!
You can check out the full press release below to see what you need to do to get your hands on some hot seats for this late July stop on The Rolling Thunder Show, as we all get ready to see the big bikes burn rubber and smoke out the competition this Sunday as the restrictors come off for the first time and the Twins Series roars into town in Springfield for the annual trek to the Memorial Day weekend mile at the Illinois State Fairgrounds this Sunday.
