This is a new event for AHRMA, we are pleased to be able to hold an event in the " AHRMA Great Lake Region" that offers such an EPIC track, history, and facility. Spread the word, either Vintage / Post Vintage AHRMA, or support classes will provide you with a unique opportunity on one of the best track in the country. We hope that it will become one of the top tier events for vintage racers annually.

Very Cool, I knew there was a vintage race at RED BUD, but didn't know the details, back in the AMA / AHRMA friendly days.

Think this will be the first solo AHRMA race at the BUD. So for most of us this will be OUR first. Whatever it is or was it will be THE place to be on Labor Day weekend.

Come out and defend that trophy.....

It's pretty cool Ahrma is putting effort into holding vintage races in a venue like this.

My racing days are long over, but Id love to if I could.

Back then we got to race on allot of great tracks with history.

Southwick, Red Bud, Unadilla, Honda Hills, Budds Creek, Muddy Creek, Hollister, Road Atlanta and Peoria just to name a few.
Glad I have the memories and 2 championships.

Mike 29:

Are the "30+ Open", "40+ Open", & "50+ Open" classes for modern bikes?
(Oh wait, those are Transition classes, up to 1999, never mind)

Will the Promoter Support Classes be mixed in with the AHRMA program or will they run after the AHRMA motos are over each day?

Not sure of the running order, the promoter classes are 2 moto's 1 on Saturday and 1 on Sunday. At Unadilla they run them earlier in the day so vintage riders can ride multiple classes.

On line sign up for the promoter classes is open.

And AHRMA discounted sign up until August 21 is online:

I heard from Amy at the Red Bud info email address. Amy says the Promoter Support class motos will be mixed in with the AHRMA program on both days.

Now I am wondering what changes will be made to the Red Bud track to make it suitable for the short travel bikes on Saturday. I hope they do tame things down for the older bikes.

I think you will see a major differences in track prep Saturday to Sunday which is the primary reason not to run an open practice on Friday. And they may well decide to run the promoter classes as the last groups Saturday to maintain desired track conditions One thing is for sure the Ritchie family at Red Bud have been working this track/dirt for 45 years, they will deliver an outstanding event.

If you have been to Unadilla for the AHRMA events over the past 5 years its amazing how layout and prep can take one of the toughest AMA Pro tracks and make it acceptable for 4" travel bikes.

I would love to race this but no way can I justify only one moto a day for two days of racing sadPhoto

So sign up for more classes, even so practice each day and a moto each day at RED BUD is certainly worth the effort, when is the next opportunity???

I only see one moto available at the AHMRA race for the vintage race bikes I own (86 KX250 & 85KX125)?

I've spun lots of laps at Red Bud on modern bikes and we usually hit at leat one practice day a year there if were not racing :-)

Your bikes fit in the Innovation Support Class. You would have opportunity to race multiple motos each day, but you would need to sign up for multiple classes to do so. You can either bump-up to race in the Transition Class or race in the appropriate Age Class in addition to Innovation. You do have to stay both days to be scored for the overall in both motos per class.

The alternative for your 85 KX125 would be to race in AHRMA Pre-Modern on Sunday only, two-motos, requires AHRMA membership. Weekend memberships are available. For 2017 this class is "Exhibition Only", meaning there are awards, but no National points. The Pre-Modern class is scheduled to be a full National Points Class in 2018.

Know them all... Had great fun racing Bob last weekend in a couple of classes, hooting and hollering in the corners. Bob's wife Sharon got some great pictures :-)

Its been a challenging year for AHRMA VMX/PVMX racing, 2 VMX events and 4 PVMX events rained out, including the last two consecutive events. AHRMA just modified the PVMX Championship qualifications from best 7 to your best 5 based on the number of cancellations.

Lots of post entries this year, maybe the weather and there will be a strong support class turnout.

Should be a nice event, and a great opportunity to ride a great track.

I signed up but in the support classes, I don't have a bike older than 1980 so these classes fit me well. Two classes, one Moto a day in each.
