Registration information is now available at http://www.afmracing.org or call 510-796-7005.

During the past 50 years, AFM events have included racers who went on to National and International fame: Kenny Roberts, Eddie Lawson, Kevin Schwantz, Mike Hailwood, John McLaughlin, and many more. There have been chapters in New York, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, and Nevada in addition to the original California chapters. The annual schedule often involved nearly two dozen races at multiple tracks, with more entries than those of the AMA.

Founded in 1954, the AFM is America’s oldest organization dedicated soley to motorcycle road racing. It remains one of the largest amateur road racing organizations in United States, with over 1300 entries common at many races, and is the only one to hold races at three tracks: Infineon, Thunderhill, and Buttonwillow.
