Sons Of Speed Inaugural RaceSons of Speed has announced they are postponing their inaugural race. The contest had been set to take place at New Smyrna Speedway during the 75th Anniversary of Daytona Bike Week in March 2016. The debut race date is to be determined.“Well, obviously, we hate to postpone,” said Billy Lane, renowned bike builder and founder of Sons of Speed. “But we have really high standards, and we worried about meeting them under the time constraints we faced. There has been so much enthusiasm from potential sponsors, fans and participants–we have to get it right.”
Sons Of Speed is a motorcycle race inspired by early twentieth-century board-track racing. Featuring stripped-down bikes with pre-1925 American V-Twin engines and a steeply banked racetrack, Sons Of Speed hearkens back to a wide-open, full-throttle, thrilling style of motorcycle racing. Co-founded by veteran motorcycle builder Billy Lane, the first Sons Of Speed race will feature some of the sport’s most accomplished riders, builders, and enthusiasts, including Jay Allen (motorcycle racer/promoter and proprietor, Broken Spoke Saloons), Buzz Kanter (publisher, American Iron Magazine), Shelley Rossmeyer-Pepe (GM, Bruce Rossmeyer’s Harley-Davidson), Warren and Billy Lane, and many more.
