    If you're in the Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin area there will be a AMA District 16/Classic flat track co-sanctioed half mile at the Walworth County Fairgrounds in Elkhorn Wisconsin. The event will include a $1000 pro purse and many national number experts are expected. Last year Henry Wiles and the Springsteen/Werner Kawasaki team were in attendence among others.
    The races start at 1 PM and the event includes a swap meet. Sunday MAY 5 is the date.
    Last year was the first time motorcycles raced at this track in 22 years and it was a real treat to see them return. Back in the '70's, Elkhorn was one of the most popular tracks in the greater Chicago/Milwaukee area. It's the only real cushion track in the area and was quite popular with riders and spectators alike. It was my second favorite track...Only Santa Fe Speedway stood above it for me.
    If you're able to check the races out...You won't be disappoited!
    The bikes that will be in the Classic classes will be just as cool as all the photos in this thread....Cooler actually because they'll be actually there and IN action!

    No, I regret not doing one. I'm too busy to be a photo journalist!

    I should do an after the fact build thread, just so others can learn from my build or steal ideas.

    Well it was a miserable rainy day today, good thing the races were indoors!:clap

    I volunteered to work track side flagging the indoor flat track races today at Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville, TN. It seemed to be a very good event and a good track despite a couple of holes that developed that we tried to fill, pack, and smooth during the breaks.

    There were riders age 6 to better than 60. It was hard to tell who was having more fun but I had the most fun watching these young guys dice for position.

    They also included quads in the event today. That amount of power with the traction to back it up was a sight to behold. Not sure you could get me on one of those. I think the 2 wheeled bikes were actually safer.

    Looks like someone got a little motorcycle on their pipe.
