Flat Track Motorcycle Racing Will Return to Phoenix in May
PHOENIX---The chase for the 2017 national championship in high speed professional motorcycle dirt track racing will return to Turf Paradise in Phoenix on May 13 this year, following the inaugural race last year that featured a huge crowd and a rider roster that included every top racer in the country.
The Law Tigers Arizona Mile, sanctioned by American Flat Track, formerly known as AMA Pro, will be the fourth stop of the 18-race series stretching from Daytona in March to Southern California in October that leads one rider to the coveted #1 plate and a national title.
Last year at Turf Paradise Bryan Smith, the widely acknowledged "mile master" of the American Flat Track series from Flushing, MI, stormed to the first of his four race victories to claim the Grand National championship in one of the most-hard fought title chases in the sport's decades-long history, in which he claimed the title from four-time champ Jared Mees by a scant five points.
But in addition to a new name for the national sanctioning body, other changes in the series promise more excitement in 2017. Smith and Mees may again battle for the rights to the Number One plate, but will also be teammates on a new bike with a new manufacturer. They will ride alongside 2013 Grand National Champion Brad Baker on a team fielded by Indian Motorcycles, which is mounting a challenge to long time stalwarts in the sport such as Harley Davidson.Read More
