    Up here in MA we had Sideways Promotions

    http://www.sidewayspromo.com/index.html

    Until the death of Pete Giammalvo just about a year ago. The track was closed last year, not sure if it will ever re open. Does anyone know of more small tracks like this in New England?

    opps, sorry Dogboy, just realized this was a ama flat track thread. Thought it was just a general FT thread. No AMA races up near New England, we use to have one in NY at Vernon Downs

    What about Triumph? I heard something about a built up modern Bonneville air-cooled twin running, true?

    I hope the Az. dates come back to Prescott Downs (assuming they are under new ownership). That place was a great venue and the crowds were huge.

    The OH race will likely be at Greenville on the TBA. Treaty City MC is very active at promoting that race.

    The big NY race used to be at Syracuse where they ran for many yrs.

    I think you will see more additions as the year progresses.... perhaps Knoxville.

    Look for more riders on Kaws than ever. They are a lot more inexpensive to own and run than an HD and just as fast now.

    Look for K. Coolbeth to make a big comeback this year. Remember how he finished up last year after the injury!

    Hopefully we will see JD Beach at a few more races this year. Should be a great season.
