Mid-America Speedway in Indy January 2014 Newsletter

Mid America News
Mid-America is looking forward to our 7th Season in 2014.  Our 2014 schedule was released on December 8th which is the soonest that we have ever been able to get our schedule out.  The schedule is very similar to last year, although the biggest news is that our Night Before the Indy Mile is now the Night After the Indy Mile as the Mile is moving to Friday, August 8th.  This will also be round 10 of the AMA Vintage National Dirt Track Series, and just like last year it will feature the Pro 450 Class, and the Bultaco Astro Cup along with some limited modern bike classes.  The full schedule is posted to the right.  Please note that the Columbus race dates which are promoted by the Midwest Motorcycle Club are tentative dates as the fair board in Columbus has a meeting in late January/early February to decide who gets which dates.  However they are the same weekends that Columbus ran in 2013
Considering the current weather conditions in central Indiana, it is hard to believe that are our first event is a little over three months away, but rest assured that once the weather breaks we will be prepping the track in order to give the riders and spectators the best possible track possible.  Note that riders meeting will be at 4:30, and practice is at 5:00pm for the April event.

Indoor Ice Racing
While it may be too cold to ride outdoors right now, the folks at Extreme International Ice Racing ( asked us to remind everybody that they have indoor events scheduled for St. Louis, MO on Jan. 25th, Everett, WA on Feb. 7th, and Danville, IL on February 21st.  More events will be added in the near future.  The Extreme International Ice Racing series is a professional series attracting crowds between 3,000 and 10,00 people depending on the size of the arena.  Traditionally they have run speedway bikes and quads, but two years ago 450's and pit bikes were added, and they have turned out to be a huge hit.  The 450 class pays $500 to win, making it one of the better paying indoor events out there.  Interested riders must contact Anthony Barlow at 636.795.4773 to reserve a spot in the lineup so that their name can be added to the program.
