According to museum volunteer Bob Colbert today, “We are very excited to be offering a Flat-Track 101 program about the lives and careers of select veterans, current champions, and up-and-comers in the sport of AMA flat-track motorcycle racing.  My thanks to Matt George, Brian Stickel and Bob Weirbach for helping make this happen, as June 13-15 has the potential to be a huge weekend featuring the best of the AMA flat-track motorcycle riders and the best of the World of Outlaws (WoO) dirt-track sprint car racers.  Our program, and the vintage racing bikes in the museum, will just add to the excitement of the entire AMA/WoO weekend.”
