Dirt Rider - - Tear Offs -

This past June 7, 8, and 9 marked the 25th an­nual run­ning of the AMA Vin­tage Days. The event takes place just out­side of Lex­ing­ton, Ohio. There are plenty of vin­tage bikes around, and cruis­ing the pits takes you back in time to 1985…or 1935. But there’s so much more to the event than just show­ing off a per­fectly re­stored In­dian, Pen­ton, or BSA. One of the most ex­cit­ing parts of the week­end is the rac­ing. Between road­rac­ing, hare scram­bles, mo­tocross, and tri­als, there’s al­most al­ways some­thing go­ing on. Don’t let the old-school ma­chines fool you ei­ther; with of­fi­cial AMA Na­tional Cham­pi­onships on the line, the rac­ing is in­tense.

But, wait, there’s more: a gi­gan­tic swap meet, one of the last mo­tor­dromes (a.k.a. walls of death) tour­ing in the United States, sem­i­nars on top­ics from the in­ter­nal com­bus­tion en­gine to the In­ter­na­tional Six Days En­duro, and a beer gar­den with live en­ter­tain­ment. And the best part? All money col­lected at the gate goes to a good cause: sup­port­ing the AMA Hall of Fame Mu­seum.
