The promoters of the revived Sacramento Mile, SMI, announced today that round 8 of the 2014 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship at the Cal-Expo Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 26 will feature a special appearance by 7-Time AMA Grand National Champion Chris Carr and 3-Time AMA Grand National Champion Jay Springsteen.
Both riders will be honored at the event and will partake in a special exhibition race during the evening's events that will take place on the mile oval in Sacramento.
In the shot above, Springer #9 and Carr #4 battle--or more like play--during a special Honda CRF150R exhibition short track race held on the front straightaway at the Illinois State Fairgrounds during the Labor Day weekend running of the Springfield Mile I on August 31.
For all of you west coast flat track fans, this will not only be the night to see some of the best of the best in The Rolling Thunder Show duke it out at over 125mph at the Sacramento Mile's great venue, but to also see two of the sports' greatest ever stars and athletes compete in what will surely be an evening for the record books. If you haven't gotten your tickets yet, you'd better act quickly or they will be gone before you know it.
