He was live on FB a few minutes ago. He has been doing a lot of “training” in advance of the event. Lookup Flat Track Fite Klub on FB. Tons of smack talking from most of the riders.

I don’t now. He has never raced against this caliber of riders at a pro event, and these Astros are much different than the other bikes he has raced on the TT’s.

Being that they are on Bultaco Astros is going to the a huge equalizers for the retired guys. If any of the current riders I have ridden and Astro, it is most likely a very short amount of time, and most have never used a decompression lever. The older ... more »

I ran a 1/4 mile flattrack for 12 years that had a great reputation for both the surface and dust control. We would start watering on Tuesday for a Saturday race. Try to do it once it starts cooling off. This allows the water to settle into the ground ... more »

I have been riding flattrack and speedway for the last 15 years, but rode MX for 15 years before that. Sponsorship is hard to come by in MX. I have found that it is much different in speedway as I was able to get almost all of my airfare, hotels, entry ... more »

I have been involved in MX, Speedway, and Flattrack since about 1978. In the fall of 2018 another rider was raffling off a pretty nice Kawasaki 700 flattracker for $350/ticket. He was only selling 40 tickets and my wife told me to buy a ticket. I ended ... more »

I was the second person to ever ride a flattrack bike with their soon to be released flattrack tires and they were amazing. They don’t compare to anything on the market right now.

I promoted flattrack for 12 years and it was $792/race, if you did a two day race, it was 1/2 price for day two. Had to have an ambulance on sight. Feel free to email me at Jimterchila@yahoo.com if you have any other questions.

I promote flat tack, and we use Jones Birdsong and have used them for several years. They are also AMA approved if that matters. They are very easy to work with, and do offer a lower rate for practice/clinics etc.
