Short Track Racing begins at 3:00 PM with races in Open Pro, Open Vintage, Open Sportsman and Class C categories; 40 races in all. Spectators can expect to see competitive, bar banging, sideways bike racing in the Open Pro competition, with the winner receiving $2,000. Traction scrambles in all classes mix up traditional motorcycle racing with fun and competition.
Guests to the event can see hundreds of motorcycles up close at the vintage motorcycle show accompanying the day of racing. The show will feature classic flat trackers, race bikes, Japanese and Euro vintage bikes, custom built street bikes and dirt bikes. After the racing, all are welcome to join in the celebration with a live band and food at the Island Bar and nearby overnight camping.
