American Motorcyclist Association members save on advance tickets for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days

PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- March 22, 2012 -- Members of the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) can now take advantage of a special discount on tickets for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is July 20-22 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

AMA members can purchase a weekend pass for $35, a $10 savings off the regular advance rate, and a one-day pass for $20, a $5 savings off the regular advance rate. The AMA member discount is in addition to the regular $10 savings on advance ticket purchases, and there is no service charge for AMA members when purchasing through the AMA.

AMA member pricing, available through May 28, is only available by calling the AMA directly at (800) 262-5646. In addition to these ticket savings, kids under 12 will be admitted free with a paying, supervising adult.

"AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is one of my favorite events of the year," said AMA Director of Operations and AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Jack Penton. "The chance to hang out with good friends, see some incredible motorcycles, learn from motorcycling experts, meet our motorcycling heroes, get some great deals in the massive swap meet, and take part in some great vintage racing makes AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days the coolest place on the planet for three days in July.

"The AMA is excited to offer this special pricing so that more AMA members than ever can come out and experience this incredible event," Penton said.

A fundraiser for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days features classic motorcycles of all makes and styles, and honors the riders who made them famous. Activities include the AMA Racing Vintage Grand Championships, which include amateur national championship roadracing, motocross, hare scrambles, trials and dirt-track; North America's largest motorcycle swap meet; bike shows and awards; stunt shows; demo rides of current production bikes; an AMA Life Member breakfast; and seminars on a number of topics by noted motorcycling experts. This year will also include an AMA-sanctioned field meet on the infield, offering prizes and awards to riders who excel at the vintage skill events that have been a part of motorcycling for decades.

In addition to perusing the swap meet, enthusiasts also have the option of taking advantage of free on-site primitive camping as swap meet vendors. If you have some vintage parts, bikes or memorabilia that you would like to sell while immersing yourself in AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days experience, you're encouraged to do so. Swap meet vendor applications are available at > Vendor and Swap Meet Info.
