Heartland Motorsports Park to be host site of AHRMA Classic MotoFest® in the Heartland
Topeka, Kansas, March 16, 2021 – The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) in association with Antique Motorcycle Club of America (AMCA) and Laroque Motorsports confirmed it will host the AHRMA Classic MotoFest® in the Heartland at Heartland Motorsports Park (HMP) in Topeka, Kansas.
The event will take place May 28-30, 2021 and will feature a wide array of vintage 2-wheel action including road racing, motocross, cross country, trials and drag racing. The MotoFest, while focused on the planned vintage competition, will include a swap meet, bike show, and other family friendly activities.
With its mission of restoring and racing on and off-road vintage motorcycles while appealing to a diverse audience, it’s an event that fits HMP. HMP is one of the finest, multi-purpose racing and entertainment destinations in the US. Located on the south side of Topeka, KS, the facility features a championship NHRA-sanctioned 1/4-mile drag strip, and a 2.5-mile road course. In addition, a large off-road area has been designated for the construction of a custom motocross track and 5-mile forested cross-country track specifically for this event.
“The AHRMA Classic MotoFest® in the Heartland is a perfect opportunity for motorsports fans to see a variety of disciplines over one weekend,” said Travis Hilton, Track Manager for Heartland Motorsports Park. “With a facility as diverse as ours, AHRMA’s event utilizing the many different courses is phenomenal. Spectators will certainly have their ticket’s worth of excitement seeing many different types of competition over the May 28-30 weekend. In addition to competition, entertainment options will be available for all in the form of a premiere bike show, widespread swap meet, and live band performing for everyone’s enjoyment. The 2021 AHRMA Classic MotoFest® in the Heartland event will be a chance for new and old attendees to talk about for years—or at least until 2022!”
“We’re really excited to bring such a big variety of what AHRMA is all about to motorcycle fans in the Midwest,” said Arthur Kowitz, AHRMA’s Chairman of the Board. “Plus, the central location of HMP means we’ll attract AHRMA competitors from all over the country.”
AHRMA officials said the HMP event is a chance for racers to compete on and off-road during the same weekend.
“Many of our members like to road-race and do the off-road stuff and vice versa but it’s rare for them to do both at the same event. They may need to make room in their vans and trailers for more bikes!” Kowitz said.
