Family Events Now Has Tickets On Sale for the Return of the AMA Pro Flat Track DuQuoin 'Magic Mile' on July 4

Tickets went on sale mid-week last week for the return of the DuQuoin 'Magic Mile' at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds for round 7 of the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season on July 4. Family Events, the Indianapolis-based promoters of DuQuoin and the legendary Indy Mile, is making the return of the Magic Mile possible after a ten-year hiatus from the series' schedule.

This is a great opportunity for more Midwest fans and fanatics to see The Rolling Thunder Show perform at one of the premier facilities in the area, as DuQuoin is one of the finest and fastest tracks in the nation, and there are virtually NO bad seats anywhere in the grandstands. The last time the track hosted the greatest racing show on two wheels in the world was at the end of the 2004 season when former AMA Grand National #23 Kevin 'Cupcake' Atherton ran away from the field in a romp that saw him win by half a track, and the most recent running of the mile in Southern Illinois was at the end of the 2005 season when former 7-Time AMA Grand National Champion Chris 'The Prince of Peoria' Carr showed the field the way to the checkered flag and also that his skills were not just in top form at the track just outside of Peoria, Illinois from where he garnered his famous nickname.

Looking at the prices of tickets not only for pre-sale but at the gate, this is one of, is not THE best deals in spectator viewing for the dollar. At $20/each for general admission (remember, there is NO BAD SEAT TO BE HAD) you can't afford NOT to make the trip to the DuQuoin event!

In the shot above, final qualifying at the legendary Indy Mile sees Jared Mees on #9 Rogers Racing/Las Vegas H-D/Blue Springs H-D-sponsored H-D XR750 taking the highline with Kenny Coolbeth, Jr. on the #2 Zanotti Racing/Moroney's H-D/Burt Ives Honda-backed XR750 holding his own while hugging the lowline next to the guard rail. Bringing up the rear of these former and current champions is Henry Wiles on the #17 Don's Kawasaki/DPC Racing/EA Racing-sponsored Kawasaki EX650.

Whatever you do, get on board and get your tickets now for the DuQuoin Mile on July 4, as this promises to be another superb showing of action and bar banging in The Rolling Thunder Show, and with Family Events putting on the show, you can't go wrong. These people know how to promote a great flat track race, as they have shown the last several years with their promotion of the Indy Mile, but the ticket prices alone should bring the fans out in droves to see the action in person!

Check out their release below and get your credit cards out to get your tickets lined up for the DuQuoin 'Magic Mile' over the Fourth of July weekend!

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (APRIL 23, 2015) - Tickets for the return of the DuQuoin “Magic Mile” AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Motorcycle race set for July 4, 2015 are now on sale.  Gates for the Independence Day event will open at 2:00pm (CDT) on July 4th, with practice and qualifying from 2:30 – 4:30pm, Rider autographs from 4:30pm – 6:00pm, opening ceremonies at 6:30pm, and racing beginning at 7:00pm.  The National final is set for 9:00pm.  All seats will be General Admission, with tickets for children age 2-12 years old only $10.
Historically one of the fastest miles on the AMA Pro Flat Track circuit, the DuQuoin State Fair’s dirt surface has not hosted the top flat-track riders since 2005.  That last race was won by Chris Carr, who collected his only win on the Magic Mile on his way to his seventh and final championship season. 
The DuQuoin State Fairgrounds has its origins in the 1920’s.  In 1946, the “Magic Mile” track was created on land that had once been a strip mine.  Since then, the track has been the site of hundreds of internationally-noted horse races, auto races, motorcycles races and top-name concerts.  Racing legends like A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti, Bobby Unser and more competed on the Magic Mile in Champ cars in the 1960’s.  Its oval shape with long straightaways makes the Magic Mile particularly well suited for AMA Pro Flat track action.     
The lightning-fast competition roars from a wheelie-inducing standing-start as a huge pack of riders duel handlebar-to-handlebar with one foot down and the bikes pitched sideways into the first of dozens of power-sliding, full-throttle corner battles. The riders then put their chins on their fuel tanks and often drop their non-throttle hand from the handle grip to their backs in an effort to gain an aerodynamic drafting edge at straightaway speeds reaching 120mph. 
Fans will be able to camp on the north end of the historic, sprawling and scenic grounds of the DuQuoin State Fair.  The Fairgrounds boasts over 1,000 hookups with water and electric. Two bath houses with toilets and showers and a dump station are also on site.  There is unlimited primitive tent camping, a covered picnic pavilion with electric and water, a fishing lake (license required, bank fishing only), and paved roads for biking and walking.  For more information on camping, click:

AMA Pro Racing Creates New Competition Advisory Board to Help Oversee AMA Pro Flat Track

AMA Pro Racing announced last week the creation of a new competition advisory board to help oversee AMA Pro Flat Track. The board will consist of seven members, headed up by 3-Time AMA Grand National Twins Champion Kenny Coolbeth, Jr. as the current and only full-time active competitor.

From the looks of the release, the other members of the board seem to be excellent choices in terms of the backgrounds and length of time in the sport, including Weirbach Racing founder Richard Weirbach, Rogers Racing head honcho Craig Rogers and former 2000 AMA Grand National Champion Joe Kopp, among several other headliners in the sport. Jeff Gordon, head stooge and wrench spinner for 2-Time AMA Grand National Twins Champion Bryan Smith has also been selected as one of the board members. With all of the technical minds 'on board' here this can really help the sport to grow in terms of level rule judgements and playing grounds for all of those involved.

In the shot above, Coolbeth aboard his #2 Zanotti Racing/Moroney's H-D/Burt Ives Honda-sponsored Harley-Davidson XR750, awaits the second round of qualifying at round 14 of the 2014 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship at the Springfield Mile II on August 31. Coolbeth went on to score the win at the mecca of speed to take his second mile win in-a-row.

Big kudos to Ronnie Jones, new flat track director this season for AMA Pro Flat Track, and AMA Pro Racing for going the extra mile to get this committee in place in order to help oversee any/all discrepancies in racing and the the interpretations of the rules. Check out the full release below.

AMA Pro Racing announces the creation of a competition advisory board for AMA Pro Flat Track

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 22, 2015) - AMA Pro Racing announced today the creation of a competition advisory board for AMA Pro Flat Track.

The seven-member competition advisory board is composed of riders, team owners and tuners elected by the paddock during the AMA Pro Flat Track preseason meeting in Daytona Beach, Fla. in March. The board will meet with AMA Pro Flat Track officials to discuss competition aspects of the sport, with the goal of fostering collaboration and enhancing the communication of information throughout the paddock.

The advisory board for 2015 consists of:
  • Kenny Coolbeth, multi-time Grand National Champion and rider of the No. 2 Zanotti Racing machine
  • Craig Rogers, team owner of Rogers Racing, fielding defending Grand National Champion Jared Mees
  • Joe Kopp, former Grand National Champion, closely involved with testing and development for Latus Motors
  • Jeff Gordon, longtime paddock fixture and engine builder for 2014 GNC1 runner-up Bryan Smith
  • Mike Scott, team owner, motorcycle businessman and former rider
  • Dick Weirbach, second generation and long-time team owner, former GNC2 championship owner
  • Craig Parkinson, team owner of the highly-successful Parkinson Brothers Racing
"Open and constructive communication is vital to the success of any organization," said Ronnie Jones, Senior Director of Competition for AMA Pro Racing. "As we usher in a new era of growth for flat track racing worldwide, we need to be in constant and direct communication with the paddock. This advisory board is comprised of key stakeholders recognized by their peers as leaders in the sport, and we are looking forward to working together as we continue to build the sport of dirt track racing in North America and throughout the world."

3-Time World Superbike Champ Troy Bayliss Confirmed to Ride 5 Mile Events in AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship on Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati

Big news for fans of the AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship came down today in the form of former 3-Time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss being confirmed to ride the Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati at all five mile races this season. Bayliss won all three of his WSBK titles under the Ducati banner, and is only one of three current men to have won a MotoGP World Championship event aboard the Italian marque as well (Casey Stoner, Loris Capirossi).

This is big news for the series and it's fans, as Bayliss has a world wide legion of fans, starting from his days of racing in his home country of Australia and grew exponentially after dominating in the World Superbike Championship with 52 wins, three titles ('01, '06, '08) and 94 podiums throughout his illustrious WSBK career. The Australian also scored 26 pole positions throughout his six+ seasons racing in the premier superbike championship in the world. TB21 also won the '99 British Superbike Championship aboard a Ducati 996.

This should also help to give The Rolling Thunder Show a broader fan base and maybe even open up the series for a more broad based throng of fans, with many of today's motorcycle racing fans more familiar with the World Superbike and MotoGP Championships. With Bayliss following, it could help to put more paying butts in the seats and to open up the fan base to a younger crowd that isn't familiar with the greatest racing series on two wheels in the world.

In the shot above, Mike Lloyd, half of the Lloyd Brothers Motorsports brothers and team owners, works on getting the #5 Ramspur Winery/Lloyd Brothers Motorsports/Parkinson Brothers Racing-sponsored Ducati 'L' twin back-up machine of rider Jake Johnson ready for some practice and qualifying action at round 14 of the 2014 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship at the Springfield Mile II on August 31. Along with the LBM Ducati and three other mounts prepped by the team, Johnson finished third in the 2014 championship standings.

The LBM team has been campaigning the big Ducati in AMA Pro Flat Track for what will now be their seventh full season, after transitioning from the Aprilia twins they had raced before making the move to the big 'L' twin, with which 2000 AMA Grand National Champion Joe Kopp finally got the team their breakout win at the Prescott, AZ. mile in May of 2010.  Their dedication to the sport as well as their leading edge of professional appearance in the AMA paddock has put them at the front of the sport in terms of their approach and outlook on the series, and they have set the bar across the board in these areas as well as putting some of the best and finest racers on their equipment over the years including Kopp, Larry Pegram, Henry Wiles and last year's team rider, 2-Time AMA Grand National Champion Jake Johnson.

Mike and Dave Lloyd also had a special bike prepped and ready to go for '02 AMA Superbike Champ and '06 MotoGP Champ Nicky Hayden at the 2010 Indy Mile, which the Kentucky Kid used to thrill the crowd during a short on-track demo ride. And with their long association of building the big Italian twins (both with and without direct backing from the Bologna, Italy-based factory or it's U.S. entities) have always managed to rep the brand, the series, their sponsors and the fans in a way that has made their level of diversity in the series stand out among the rest.

It has also been reported today that former AMA Supermoto Champ and Daytona Short Track winner Johnny Lewis will be joining the team and will compete in the majority of Twins Series events as well as the XGames this summer under the LBM banner.

Check out the full press release below thanks to AMA Pro Racing, as we offer a big congrats to the LBM boys for being able to get this deal put together in order to bring one of the most popular riders in the World Superbike Championship over to run one of their rigs, and for getting a rider of Lewis' background and magnitude to ride one of their bikes for the full season. Make sure and get your tickets to one (or ALL) of the five mile races this year as seeing Bayliss race one of the LBM Ducatis is not only going to be big, but it's going to be fast and fun, too!

Three-Time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss to race at iconic AMA Pro Flat Track Mile events in 2015

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 21, 2015) - Troy Bayliss, the Australian road racing superstar and winner of three World Superbike titles, is coming to the USA to compete in the most iconic and historic form of American motorcycle racing.
Bayliss will run five events on the AMA Pro Flat Track schedule, putting him in the field against the best dirt track racers in the world. He is set to make his debut on a Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati May 24 at the legendary Springfield Mile in Springfield, Ill., and will run the four remaining Mile events on the 2015 schedule.
"Having Troy Bayliss race with AMA Pro Flat Track, at some of our most storied venues, really multiplies the excitement and positive momentum we have as a sport right now," said Michael Gentry, Chief Operating Officer of AMA Pro Racing. "With his own exhibition race, as well as the Superprestigio and with his impressive resume with World Superbike, British Superbike and MotoGP, Troy is one of the motorcycle racing greats. Seeing him on American dirt is a mouth-watering prospect for USA race fans. We are looking forward to the excitement created by his presence in our paddock. A lot of work went into making this a reality and we are thankful to David and Michael Lloyd of Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Jim Dillard, Vicki Smith and Ducati North America for their vision, support and participation."
Top road racers have long used dirt track as a training regimen, but Bayliss has taken it to a new level since his retirement from full-time competition in 2008. For the last three years, he's successfully promoted the Troy Bayliss Classic flat track exhibition in Australia, an event that has attracted top AMA Pro Flat Track riders such as current Grand National Champion Jared Mees, Sammy Halbert and Henry Wiles.
Following the Springfield Mile, Bayliss is scheduled to race the Sacramento Mile on May 30. July 4 and 11, he'll run the Du Quoin Mile and Indy Mile, respectively, before finishing with the second running of the Springfield Mile Sept. 6.
"Dirt and flat track racing are where I cut my teeth as a junior. Everything I have learned on the dirt helped me through my career in road racing and to find myself back where it all started makes me feel young again," said Bayliss. "To race the Grand Nationals will be a challenge, but to compete with Lloyd Brothers Motorsports on the Ducati had to be done. Flat track is on the up here in Australia. We have run the Troy Bayliss Classic for the past three years and mixing it up with Henry Wiles, Jared Mees and Sammy Halbert has been great. I really look forward to my time in the US of A."
Bayliss, 46, recorded 94 podium finishes in 152 World Superbike starts, including 52 victories. He recorded his only MotoGP victory as a wildcard entrant in 2006, filling in for the injured Factory Ducati rider, Sete Gibernau, in Valencia, Spain. His decorated resume also includes a British Superbike Championship, which he won in 1999.
Next up, the stars of AMA Pro Flat Track will visit Springfield, Ill., for the first Springfield Mile on May 24, 2015. Fans can get their tickets by calling (217) 753-8866.

You can check out the complete revised schedule here thanks to AMA Pro Flat Track, and the full press release below that details the changes being made for the Left Coast fans at the Napa County Fairgrounds.

Calistoga Half-Mile Moved to Sept. 26

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 7, 2015) - Dirt Track Unlimited and Motorsport Ventures, promoters of the Calistoga Half-Mile, have announced a date change for this year's event. The race, Round 15 of the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule, will take place Sept. 26, one week prior to its originally scheduled date. The change is being made in an effort to accommodate the greatest number of fans in response to other events happening in the area.
"We're happy to be returning to Calistoga Speedway and the beautiful Napa County Fairgrounds," said Michael Gentry, Chief Operating Officer of AMA Pro Racing. "The date change should ensure the best possible turnout for the race, and we're ready to put on a great show."
The race remains the penultimate event on the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule and promises to be a crucial turning point for the stars of dirt track racing who will be eyeing championships in the waning moments of the season.
"Building on the extreme success of the 2014 event, we're thrilled to be bringing back the Calistoga Half-Mile," said Chris Morgan of Motorsport Ventures, who is working alongside Terry Otton of Ramspur Winery and Steve DeLorenzi of Dirt Track Unlimited, to promote the event.

Team Pata Honda Suffers 2 Top-10s and 2 DNFs at Motorland Aragon World Superbike Round

Tough day in the office for Pata Honda duo
Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
Motorland Aragon - Spain    12.04.2015
Tough day in the office for Pata Honda duo
The third-round of the World Superbike championship this weekend has been a challenging outing for Michael van der Mark and Sylvain Guintoli at Aragon, Spain.
Over the weekend the team strived to improve and find the optimum setting for the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP around the 5.077km circuit.
In the first of two 18-lap races, van der Mark was forced to retire due to a small technical problem on the tenth lap. The second race saw the SBK rookie make a gallant attack moving up from his starting grid position in 11th to sixth place, but on the last lap had to settle with eighth.
Meanwhile van der Mark’s teammate Sylvain Guintoli finished race one within the top-ten taking ninth place after making his way forward from his qualifying position in 14th. During the second installment he had made his way up to tenth but crashed out of the running on the sixth lap after loosing the front.
The team will now take and analyse all the data collected from each session this weekend in preparation for its home race at Assen, the Netherlands next weekend 17-19 April. 
Michael van der Mark
Michael van der Mark - DNF    8th
I felt quite confident going into race one today, but I knew I had some work to do starting from 11th. My lap times were getting better and better and I was improving on each lap, but unfortunately we had a small technical problem, which meant I had to finish the race early. Race two was better, I managed to get up to speed quickly and move further forward towards the front. I’m happy to leave here with some points and we now have some work to do before Assen next weekend, where I hope we have some better results. 
Sylvain Guintoli
Sylvain Guintoli - 9th    DNF
This weekend we have been working hard to find the right settings for the Fireblade around this circuit, which hasn’t been easy. I think in race two I could have challenged for sixth position but I got a little hungry and lost the front, which resulted in me crashing out unfortunately. It’s not normally something that happens to me, but sometimes it does and you have to learn from it. The guys have collected a lot of data from this round and will be working towards finding solutions for Michael and myself to get the results we all want. 
Pieter Breddels

Aragon has been a bit of a challenge for us as we have tried to find the optimum setting for the CBR1000RR and we knew that both races would be difficult. In race one Sylvain got off to a good start immediately going into the top-ten and finished the race ninth. Michael recovered his start well and was building good momentum and producing lap times that could match the guys in front of him. Unfortunately after ten-laps he had a small technical issue with the bike, which forced him out of the race. In race two Sylvain had a crash after loosing the front, which ended his weekend. For Michael it was a lot better, he fought all throughout the race to get into sixth position but on the very last lap had to settle for eighth. Both riders rode well all weekend but there is a gap at the front, which we now have to go back and an alyse and think how we can close this, and get closer to the action.
