Flat Track Motorcycle Enthusiast!
Welcome to The Sacramento Mile National newsletter.
After a December meeting in Daytona with AMA Pro Racing management, staff and some team owners and other promoters, I am convinced that Flat Track racing is on its way back in a big way. With the leadership exhibited by the AMA Pro Racing management and with the quality staff who will be focused on the sport of Flat Track racing, this is the first time in my 40 years of involvement with the sport-as a racer, sponsor and promoter-that I feel Flat Track will be getting the attention it deserves. With the resurgence of Flat Track racing and with multiple brands winning races, the timing could not have been better. But no matter how good all of the above is, Pro racing does not exist without the race fans.
The fan support that the 2010 Calistoga Half Mile National received encouraged us to look again at the Sacramento Mile. We are exited about working with the management at Cal Expo to bring back the Sacramento Mile as a headliner event of the California State Fair. With the addition of The Mile, GNC racing in Nor Cal is on its way to being all it can be--the most exciting form of motor sports!
See you at the races!

The Sacramento Mile National
Mark July 30 on Your Calendar!
What's that rumble you're hearing? It's the rolling thunder of the impending return of The Mile motorcycle racing to Sacramento! Yes, it really is true - after over a decade away, the AMA Pro Racing Grand National Championship series is on its way back to our capital.
In the wake of 2010's wildly successful, first-ever Calistoga Half-Mile National [which is returning on 10/1/11], this year's schedule includes two inaugural events. On Saturday, April 23 - the Salinas TT will offer exciting outdoor competition occuring on a shorter dirt track, complete with a jump & other challenges. Saturday July 30 introduces the return of the iconic Sacramento Mile after over a decade away. This trend reflects the nationwide revival being enjoyed by AMA Pro flat track racing and motorsports enthusiasts alike.
Despain's Take on The Mile
".....The Mile. Pile on the gearing and tighten up your gut. Imagine hitting the end of a 130-mph straightaway - eyes big as dinner plates, engine screaming for mercy and hay bales dead ahead - surrounded by a dozen like-minded maniacs packed tighter than a fat man's lunch bucket. Bar banging is likely. Together you pitch your 350-pound dirt-trackers sideways into a corner so vast you can't see its exit. And no one even thinks of letting off. Welcome to dirt-track racing's toughest test -vehicular and testicular....."
