Popular online motorcycle talk-show host Barry Boone has been named as the master of ceremonies for the popular California race, coming up in late September. Many AMA Pro Flat Track fans are familiar with Barry as the former voice of AMA Pro Racing events for both flat-track and road-race event. Boone reluctantly stepped away from the announcer’s booth to grow his popular internet radio show “Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone,” which airs worldwide on Wednesday evenings.

Barry is excited, to say the least, and has this to say about his role at the Calistoga Half Mile event:

“I could not be more excited to work with the Ramspur Winery team at Calistoga. The fans at Calistoga love Grand National flat-track racing, and are extremely enthusiastic. The Ramspur Winery Half Mile National, presented by Triumph Motorcycles, features amazing on-track activity. Thanks to Terry Otton and his great team, there will be much to do in addition to the race, and we plan to do it all! Thanks to the support of Triumph Motorcycles and their loyal customers, this race is going to be epic, and I am humbled to be a part of it.”

“You never have too much professionalism,” said race promoter Terry Otton. “Barry Boone is a great fan of flat-track racing, and his love for the sport is obvious. His career in motorsports is extensive, and I feel his talents are missed by our fans and racers alike. Barry’s professional work ethic, energetic announcing skills, wit and humor is just the kind of flair we are looking for. We felt this was a great way to showcase our sponsors as well as our teams. Our goal is to make improvements every year to our event and to improve our fan experience. I consider Barry’s involvement a great asset to our public relations team.”

Race day is Saturday, September 26. However, the fun will start with a barbecue on Thursday, September 24, at Marins Speed Shop, located at 135 Front Street in San Rafael, California. Friday, September 25, is Media Day at Calistoga Speedway, in the morning; it will be officiated by Barry Boone. Saturday, September 26, is race day! The day will kick off back at Marins Speed Shop for a group ride to the Speedway and a riders’ parade down the closed streets of historic Calistoga, California, and the scenic wine region surrounding the city! Barry Boone will take fans and race teams through race-day activities via local media sources, track media, and public-address systems.
