This is the 49th running of the Sacramento Mile. The
race, which first ran in 1959, is one of the most tradition-filled events on
the AMA Pro Grand National Championship calendar. This year fans have the
opportunity to potentially see history in the making. Michigan’s Bryan Smith is
slated to return and try to win a fourth-straight Sacramento Mile. That would
mark the longest winning streak in the history of the race.
“I look at Sacramento as a home away from home,” Smith said. “That
race has always been good to me. To have a chance to be the first to win four
in a row there is a real honor, especially considering all the great riders
who’ve raced Sacramento over the years.”
The past Sacramento Mile winners Smith refers to reads like a
Who’s Who of American motorcycle racing. The legendary Carroll Resweber was the
first to taste victory at Sacramento, when he rode his factory Harley-Davidson
to victory in the AMA Grand National held at the track on July 19, 1959. Since
then Motorcycle Hall of Famers such as Joe Leonard, Gary Nixon, Hank Scott, Jay
Springsteen, Ricky Graham, Bubba Shobert, Scott Parker and Chris Carr have all
stood atop the Sacramento Mile podium.
Fans will also have the unique opportunity this year to witness
female racing sensation Shayna Texter make her Sacramento Mile Grand National
Championship debut. Texter, who twice won the Pro Singles support class race at
Sacramento, is hoping to make history as the first woman ever to win an AMA Pro
Grand National Championship race. And she is hoping to resurrect Triumph’s
fortune in GNC racing. The last a Triumph motorcycle to win the Sacramento Mile
was 50 years ago when the late great Gary Nixon rode the British-made machine
to victory in 1964.
The AMA Pro Grand National Championship series is one of the
longest running motorcycle racing championships in the world. Known by its fans
as flat track racing, many consider this form of motorcycle racing the most
exciting on the planet. On the long straights of the Sacramento Mile top speeds
can reach 130 miles per hour and, running just inches apart, riders then
broadslide their machines into the turns at triple-digit speed, controlling
their arc through by throttling up and spinning their bike’s rear wheel, all of
this on a racing surface made of dirt! Flat track racing has produced many of
America’s Motorcycle Grand Prix Champions such as Kenny Roberts, Eddie Lawson,
Wayne Rainey, Kenny Roberts, Jr. and Nicky Hayden.
Practice for the Sacramento Mile begins at on Saturday, July 26 at
2:15 p.m. and opening ceremonies for the evening program kick off at 6:15 p.m.
