Finally; a Victory!


A little bit of history was made last night at the Sacramento Mile. A Harley-Davidson XG 750, ridden by Dalton Gauthier won the Production Twins Main Event. It was the first time an XG has won in American Flat Track. A second XG, which was ridden by James Raspoli finished fifth after leading the race early on.

I consider the Production Twins class to be the modern day equivalent of the old Class C. It would tickle me to see it become the Premier Class, so that privateers might have a chance at winning for a change.

I hope the Harleys can do as well at the Springfield Mile on Labor Day weekend.

Oh; the Singles race was a real barn burner with a pack of 8 bikes in contention for the win. NBCSN will be showing it on August 25 at 7:00 PM (ET) If you've never seen a flat track and you've got cable, I recommend you watch it.

I have been to Laguna Seca since 2006 for MotoGP and later World Superbike, along with stand alone AMA races. Two years ago my local town of Santa Maria Ca. altered their 1/3rd mile dirt track infield section to accommodate the AMA Speedway bikes. It might have been a 1/5th mile track and hosted their finals. I enjoyed the pros, but their was a big difference between the level of the classes running that night. My bucket list since I was a kid seeing On Any Sunday in a theatre was to watch a mile race. This had to be THE BEST NIGHT EVER of watching motorcycle racing for me in person! It was beyond cool!

I liked watching the Sacramento Mile but the San Jose Mile was is a true Legend and was my favorite for many years.
Too bad it's gone.

I just looked at the 10 day forecast for Springfield on Weather Underground and it looks like high temps in the mid 70s and lows in the mid 50s and a very low probability for precipitation.

In other words, the weather is supposed to be beautiful!
