Steve Nace Racing All-Star AMA National Flat Track Series Heads to Peoria June 15 & 17
With yet another 15 days before round 5 of the 2012 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com season heads to the pea gravel-slinging Lima, OH. half-mile at the Allen County Fairgrounds, Steve Nace Racing's All-Star AMA National Flat Track Series heads to the Peoria Speedway today and on to the Peoria Motorcycle Club's famed TT track on Sunday June 17, just two weeks after the Dairyland Classic in Plymouth, WI. and the Chilton, WI. short track rounds.
For those of you unfamiliar with Steve's All-Star Series, based out of Paducah, KY., Steve Nace, Kelly Bell, Kevin Snyder and a host of other super folks run a national-caliber flat track series on some of their off-weekends when not doing their thing for AMA Pro Flat Track. For several years now, Nace and his crew have been putting on a full schedule of races, hitting some of the fairground tracks throughout the nation that attracts riders from all around for the action.
In the shot above, Jared Mees can be seen from round 15 of the 2011 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com season at the Springfield Short Track on September 3. Mees had an uncharacteristic finish at Springfield on his #9 Lucas Oil/National Cycle/Rogers Lake Racing/Montgomeryville Cycle-sponsored Honda CRF450R by finishing in the 10th spot that evening.
Mees, who regularly campaigns the SNR All-Star Series, is last year's double champion in the Expert Singles and Expert Twins Series classes and is coming off of a double win two weekends ago at the Plymouth and Chilton, WI. rounds. Plymouth just celebrated it's 28th annual event that has been promoted by Bert Sumner and has been followed by one of SNR's events in the area for some years now.
Mees is one of a big handful of AMA Pro Flat Track racers who will be on-hand this weekend trying to steal the show at tonight's Peoria Speedway round and Sunday's Peoria TT round.
You can check out the flyer below to get all of this weekend's event info, and if you are in the area you owe it to yourself to head to both rounds to see a great program with a super bunch of people running the show. Most of these events are like 'mini-Nationals' so you should see at least one or two of your favorite riders on-hand trying to capture all the glory and give some of the National riders a run for their money.
