Decades in the Making!
After a 42 year absence, the spectacular two-wheeled action of AMA Pro Flat Track racing returns to the Santa Rosa Fairgrounds on Sunday afternoon, September 30th.
Run in 1968, 1969 and 1970, the Santa Rosa Mile spotlighted the top level competitors of the time such as Dick Mann, Gary Nixon, Freddie Nix, Chuck Palmgren, Jim Rice and more wrestling BSA, Harley- Davidson and Triumph machines for dominance on the dirt.
In 1968, the late Freddie Nix was the inaugural Santa Rosa Mille winner. Piloting a thundering
Harley-Davidson, Nix captured each of the AMA Pro trail’s four Grand National Miles to claim the title of “Mile Master”.
Factory-level British bikes took the following pair of Santa Rosa Mile Checkers. In 1969, Chuck Palmgren rode a hi-strung Triumph twin to victory and in 1970, Bay Area resident Jim Rice steered his booming BSA to first place. Gentleman Jim won six races that year with a mix if TT, Half-Mile and Mile events. His win at Santa Rosa closed out
the GNC run at the Fairgrounds.
Now it is back. Be sure to be on hand to witness the return of America’s most spectacular two-wheeled competition. Order your tickets now and be part of
this historic event.
