Prize Money for Top Open Two-Stroke Racers with AHRMA at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca

(Knoxville, TN) – Missing the scent of a two stroke motorcycle engine or the sound of a Yamaha TZ750 on a world class track? Want to put some money in your pocket by racing your own two-stroke motorcycle?

The two-stroke music and aroma return to WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca (WRLS) as part of the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) road race event at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca July 20 and 21. The event is part of the 2024 Bridgestone Tires AHRMA National Roadracing series.

Mojo Yamaha, Rising Sun Cycles and an anonymous AHRMA racer are sponsoring a purse of more than $2,500 for the top finishers in AHRMA’s Open Two-Stroke race event on Saturday, July 20. The first three finishers in each of the following tiers within the race will be awarded prize money:  125cc, 250cc, and 500cc+. 

Any motorcycle powered by a two-stroke engine, regardless of displacement, number of cylinders, frame type, cooling type, or date of manufacture, is eligible for AHRMA’s Open Two-Stroke class.

Bridgestone Tires will award a certificate for one set of tires to the overall winner on Saturday.  Bridgestone Tires, an AHRMA series sponsor, has supported AHRMA’s 125cc, 250cc and 500cc+ two stroke class for many years.

“You can’t have an event for historic road racing motorcycles without some two-strokes,” said Greg Tomlinson, AHRMA 2024 Chairman of the Board. “The Open Two-Stroke class is truly going to be a history lesson come to life because I expect we’ll have TZ750’s and RDs from the 70’s up against newer 125 and 250 GP bikes plus some big-bore exotics.  My eyes, ears and nose can’t wait!”

A current competition license from a known organization is required.  Race school is offered on Friday July 19 and after passing, the racer will be eligible to participate in Saturday’s and Sunday’s events.  All competitors are required to practice on Friday.  Learn more and sign up at AHRMA.org.  Racing friends and family can purchase paddock passes here.
