Vintage and Post-Vintage competition will be held in hare scrambles, motocross, trials, dirt track and road racing.

“The AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days Vintage Racing program acknowledges the heritage of our sport,” said AMA director of racing Kevin Crowther. “The fun, low-pressure environment, along with a large variety of disciplines and age classes, creates lifelong racing memories with family and friends. There truly is no other Vintage Racing event like it.”

The class winners in the hare scrambles, motocross and road-racing disciplines will be recognized as AMA National Champions and receive a highly-coveted AMA National number-one plate.

In addition, two outstanding riders will earn the AMA Off-Road Vintage Grand Championship and the AMA Senior Off-Road Vintage Grand Championship for excelling in eligible Expert-level classes.

New this year, the Old-School Ironman Award will honor the athlete who competes in the most classes in hare scrambles and motocross.

Other updates to the racing program at this year’s AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days include the addition of Youth classes to the hare scrambles and motocross events, and a new exhibition 50cc class.

AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days also features the return of pit-bike racing on Friday afternoon, July 7, and the addition of a new holeshot competition on Saturday, July 8.
