California Speedway and Lockhart-Phillips USA are organizing a 15-year reunion of California road racers to be held in the vendor area of California Speedway during this weekend's Yamaha Superbike Challenge. The reunion is open to all motorcycle road racers from clubs such as AFM, ARRA, WERA, etc. Racers are welcome to bring their family, friends and, with prior arrangement, their pre-1987 road race bikes to be put on display. The vintage race machines will be displayed at a hospitality tent that will also feature a presentation of pre-1987 photos, videos and memorabilia as well as closed-circuit television feeds of the action on the California Speedway track.

Fans are welcome to attend the reunion and its display, open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, at no additional charge.
