Miller and Adams Split AHRMA Vintage Cup Wins* at AHRMA Classic MotoFest™ of Monterey

(July 20, 2022, Elora, Tennessee) – Mark Miller and Curtis Adams split wins during the latest rounds of the 2022 American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) Vintage Cup at Laguna Seca.

Rounds 15 and 16 of the 2022 Bridgestone Tires AHRMA National Historic Cup Roadracing Series during the AHRMA Classic MotoFest™ of Monterey were held at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA July 16 and 17.

The 2022 Vintage Cup, sponsored by RoadracingWorld.com, features the Vintage Superbike Heavyweight class.  With most of the series regulars not participating in these West Coast rounds, the podium was filled with fast racers from California.

On Saturday, Mark Miller, who was aboard a 1979 Kawasaki KZ1000, led the opening laps as Curtis Adams of Riverside, CA worked to reel him in.  On lap five, Adams took the lead, but Miller pounced coming out of turn eleven to take the victory.  Darrin Gauvin rounded out the top three aboard his 1981 Honda CB900F.

Following the race, Saturday’s results were made provisional pending an official appeal filed by Miller’s team after another competitor protested the eligibility of the machine.  AHRMA officials are currently reviewing the protest under the appeal process.

On Sunday, Kevin Rammer, aboard a 1982 Honda CB650SC, took the hole shot but Adams was able to take the lead by the end of the first lap and ride to victory. California rider, David Crussell was second and Rammer third.  Rammer, of Newnan, Georgia, earned valuable points as he is currently second in the points lead for the overall Vintage Cup title.

“The race today on Sunday was an opportunity to go out and test some tires,” Adams said. “AHRMA changed the rules this year allowing slicks in this class so we were working with Bridgestone to provide feedback that will help the series and other riders.  We had to run a good pace just to do some testing.”

While Adams is relatively new to AHRMA, he has decades of racing experience. “A couple years ago I wanted to ride something.  AHRMA put on a good show at Willow Springs, so I built a little single to go ride at an AHRMA event and hang out with everybody and give me a reason to be there,” Adams said. During 2020, and almost by chance, he was able to purchase his CB750F.  “Once we owned it, we said ‘let’s see how far this goes.’”

The Vintage Superbike Heavyweight class is sponsored by International CBX Owners Association (ICOA).
