As part of the Harley vs. Indian Vintage half mile flat track races, Brittney Olsen will race against ten time board track class champ, Jim Wall and his 1928 Indian racer on Tuesday, August 5th at 11:00 a.m. at the 2014 Pappy Hoel Half Mile Classic hosted by The White Plate Flat Trackers Association and Steve Nace Racing.
These antique races bike may look small and similar to the bicycles you rode as kids, but they can reach speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour on a half mile track without brakes, clutches or transmissions. All it takes is a simple push to start their engines and they are off. Admission to the AMA sanctioned race is only $15!
“Watching these primitive machines really brings back the bygone mechanical era, where Harley and Indian would duke it out every race at the old wooden tracks. Just seeing them run today on a track is a spectacle in its self, most bikes like these are held in museums, only to be viewed from a distance!”
After the races, fans are invited to come down to meet the 20th Century Racing antique motorcycle racers for autographed posters and see their antiquated board track racing motorcycles up close! You won’t want to miss this incredible event!!!
