Saturday Night Drags to be Highlight at AHRMA Classic MotoFest™ in the Heartland
Classic Drag Racing to be Held at Heartland Motorsports Park
Topeka, Kansas, April 1, 2021 – The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) in association with Luke’s Racecraft confirmed it will host the 1st Inaugural Classic Drags at the AHRMA Classic MotoFest™ in the Heartland.
The event will take place Saturday, May 29th at the world class NHRA sanctioned quarter mile drag strip at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, KS and will feature five classes of vintage and next generation super bike drag racing under the lights in single elimination, king-of-the-hill format. Single elimination grudge matches will also be offered to competitors.
“The Heartland Motorsports Park facility is the perfect venue for us to launch, pun intended, vintage and just-past-their-prime drag bikes,” said Arthur Kowitz, Chairman of the AHRMA Board of Trustees. “Plus, it’s a chance for our road racers to test their skills on a real, traction-enhanced, drag strip.”
Look for 3-wheel sidecar rigs and modern electric bikes in the mix as well as exhibitions of exotic multi-engine and semi-pro team rigs. The intense head-to-head competition will get underway at 6:30 PM EST and run until all class champions are crowned.
Competition classes include Vintage Flyweight 0-250cc, Vintage Lightweight 251-500cc, Vintage Middleweight 501-750cc, Vintage Superbikes up to 1982, and Next Generation Superbikes from 1983-1992
“I have been intimately involved with promoting and increasing AHRMA membership for some time and with the growing sport of vintage drag racing globally, I feel that drag racing is a natural fit for AHRMA,” said Luke Conner (Luke’s Racecraft, the 2021 series sponsor). “Drag racing started here, and it’s an American Sport. AHRMA is the premier motorcycle racing program and we are truly multi-disciplined, so AHRMA events are a great place for vintage motorcycle drag racing.”
