MYRTLE BEACH, FL, APR. 18, 2014
AMA Pro Flat Tracker Johnny Lewis is bringing flat track to the south.
On May 16, Lewis will be promoting an event called “Mayhem at Myrtle Beach” on a fifth-mile paved oval right in the middle of the 75th annual Myrtle Beach Bike Week.
Lewis hopes the event will bring new fans to the sport of flat track through a good show. His ultimate goal is a little asphalt series in a downtown-type environment to get people interested before events such as the Springfield Mile.. Hopefully, these fans will come to watch flat-track racing on dirt ovals. He is offering a $3,000 purse with 100-percent payback.
