Jimmy Adamo Memorial Race Slated For Sportsman Bikes At Loudon AMA National

During the AMA National weekend June 15-17 at New Hampshire International Raceway in Loudon, New Hampshire, there will once again be a Jimmy Adamo Memorial race on the program to remember the late AMA Pro Twins racer, who died during the 1993 Daytona 200.<BR><BR>"We have such a strong road race following up here," said Jerry Wood. "We have a place with everyone to race with the AMA with the 600, the 750, and all of that, but we don't have a place for 125s and Sportsman bikes. That's what the Jimmy Adamo Memorial Sportsman race is. It is CCS Sportsman bikes, all of them and 125s, because they do the same lap times here at Loudon. What it does, it gives all of our guys who are top Experts in our club a place to race at the national."<BR><BR>The 10-lap race is open to Expert license holders from any club as long as they are an AMA member. The entry fee is $75, including post-entry, and a purse of $1500 will be paid out. "We are not letting any cherry pickers in," laughed Wood. "We just put in that you can not have finished on the rostrum in any AMA or F-USA pro race in the preceding 12 months. Looking over the grid, that's exactly what we've got." Of the 37 riders already signed up for the race most are riding Suzuki SV650s and air-cooled, two-valve Ducatis although Singles, Aprilia RS250s, 125cc GP bikes, and machines with push-rod engines are also eligible. <BR><BR>
