Go Fast, Turn Left! AMA Dirt Track Racing

Tomorrow, Saturday August 24th, Colonial Downs in New Kent County, VA will be hosting AMA Pro Flat Track racing. This will be the inaugural running of the "Virginia Mega Mile", flat track motorcycle racing on Colonial Downs 11/4 mile oval race track. These races will be fully sanctioned AMA Pro Grand NationalChampionship and AMA Pro J&P Cycles Pro Singles class heats.

The track at Colonial Downs will be the largest on the circuit this year, and with the longer straight ways, speeds up to 130 and 140 mph are being forecast for these races. The venue is making a regular hootenanny out of this event, as they should. Gates open at 9am Saturday with vendor tents and concessions on hand, in addition, live music will be offered on a track side concert stage. There is even a race "After-Party" scheduled, with more live music and prize drawings. I'm definitely headed west tomorrow, looking forward to a hot diggity time!
