Mike O'Neil is also bringing his 1949 Indian. Arrows out to Mid-America. Here is a link to their last appearance at Mid-America in 2011. The man responsible for bringing us the seven 1949 Indian Arrow Flattrack racers, Bob Stark, passed awayon June 28th. The funeral will be on July 3rd in Cypress, CA. If there is one person who could be credited with keeping the Indian legacy alive and strong from the closing of the original factory in 1953 until the marques recent success, this is the man. Hundreds of vintage Indians are on the road as a result of his efforts to make old and reproduction parts available. More importantly, he always took the time to share his mechanical and historical knowledge with anyone who had the desire to learn about the subject. He assembled the Arrows purely out of a desire to make people aware of an Indian model that had nearly been forgotten. The Arrows will be racing in Bob's honor at Mid-America.
This is shaping up as a must see race. Don't miss it!
Amateur rider Kevin Stollings Jr. leads current AMA Pro Racing Expert rider Ken Maynard, Colby Long and Charlie Gerencer in the 12 rider 450 Main at Mid America Speedway on Saturday June 20th.
This year’s “The Night After the Indy Mile” featuring The Bultaco Astro Cup Presented by Harley-Davidson of Bloomington, IN was a huge success by all measures.
The 2014 event saw 210 entries with 155 unique riders, which is a new record, beating the previous record of 120 riders. Not bad for "just a local track".
A highlight from the night was watching Mick Kirkness ride a Speedway bike like he's never ridden anything else. It was definitely fun to watch! The various vintage classes from the AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series are never boring, as you got to see some very cool old bikes doing what they do best; go fast.
The Bultaco Astro Cup race was definitely the main show. The field was packed with several former stars of the GNC series and it was sure to be a great race. It was thrilling to watch "The Kid" Charlie Gerencer run away with the win, with his father in tow.
The Open - Pro race saw a new winner this year as GNC #1 Brad Baker lead flag to flag. Jarod Vanderkooi, who won the previous night’s GNC Singles event at the Indy Mile kept him honest the entire race. Chad Cose, Mick Kirkness and local fast guy Brandon Wilhelm rounded out the top 5.
Every year this event gets better! This year there were more riders, more spectators and more concession options. Tell your friends about it and don't miss next season’s event as it will surely best this year’s event by a country mile!
