Dirt Track Unlimited and Motorsport Ventures, promoters of the Calistoga Half-Mile, have announced a date change for this year’s event. The race, Round 15 of the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule, will take place Sept. 26, one week prior to its originally scheduled date. The change is being made in an effort to accommodate the greatest number of fans in response to other events happening in the area.
“We’re happy to be returning to Calistoga Speedway and the beautiful Napa County Fairgrounds,” said Michael Gentry, Chief Operating Officer of AMA Pro Racing. “The date change should ensure the best possible turnout for the race, and we’re ready to put on a great show.”
The race remains the penultimate event on the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule and promises to be a crucial turning point for the stars of dirt track racing who will be eyeing championships in the waning moments of the season.
“Building on the extreme success of the 2014 event, we’re thrilled to be bringing back the Calistoga Half-Mile,” said Chris Morgan of Motorsport Ventures, who is working alongside Terry Otton of Ramspur Winery and Steve DeLorenzi of Dirt Track Unlimited, to promote the event. “This date is our best option to showcase the awesome talent of the best dirt track riders in the world to the greatest number of fans.”
Calistoga Speedway, nestled in the heart of California’s famous wine country, provides one of the most picturesque venues on the AMA Pro Flat Track schedule. Last year, Brad Baker took his first and only checkered flag of the season on board his Factory Harley-Davidson in the premier GNC1 class.
