AMA Event News

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce the 2011 dates for the country’s premier annual celebration of motorcycling heritage.

AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days will take place next year on July 22-24, 2011, at the world-class Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

The 20th Annual AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days features classic motorcycles of all makes and styles, and honors the riders who made them famous.

Activities include the AMA Racing Vintage Grand Championships, which feature road racing, motocross, hare scrambles, trials and dirt track; North America’s largest motorcycle swap meet; bike shows and awards; a Marque of the Year display that showcases the history of a unique brand; a Grand Marshal; a new-product vendor midway; stunt shows; demo rides of current production bikes; and seminars on a number of topics by noted motorcycling experts.

Rob Dingman (AMA President and CEO) says: "For many motorcyclists, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is the premier event of their riding seasons. As we’ve seen over the years, the appeal of this event goes beyond classic motorcycle collectors and strict vintage competitors. Motorcyclists of all eras are drawn to AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, brought together by their common love of all things motorcycling."

Tickets will go on sale Monday Nov. 22 at 8:30 a.m., and begin at $20 per day or $35 for the weekend. Please visit midohio.com or call 800-MID-OHIO (643-6446) for more information or to order tickets.

Michelle Trueman Gajoch (President of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and The Mid-Ohio School) says: "We are proud to be the host site of this excellent event for the 17th year. It will be a phenomenal time for the motorcycle crowd as racing, the swap meet, seminars and more will capture their attention throughout the weekend."

"This year will be a special one as Mid-Ohio celebrates its 50th Season of Racing, giving fans another historic reason to attend AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days."

All proceeds from AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days benefit the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum. The goal of the Museum, located on the campus of the American Motorcyclist Association in Pickerington, Ohio, is to tell the stories and preserve the history of motorcycling’s legends and heroes.
