Joyce dominates AHRMA Vintage Cup at Motorsports Park Hastings

(June 7, Knoxville, TN) – The four-stroke vs. two-stroke face-off continued during the second half of the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association’s (AHRMA) back-to-back race events in the heartland of America.

Sponsored by Hagerty Insurance, Roadracingworld.com, and NYC Norton (nycnorton.com), AHRMA’s 2023 Vintage Cup features the Formula 750 (F750) class which includes 750cc two and four-stroke powered machines built up to 1972.

The seventh and eighth rounds of the 2023 Bridgestone Tires National Road racing series took place in the home of Koolaid at Motorsports Park Hastings, Hastings, NE.

Tim Joyce, riding an NYC Norton Nourish Racing Engineering (NRE) Seeley, took an early lead and then victory both days ahead of Colton Roberts on a Yamaha RD400.

The race for third pitted Jeff Hargis on his Yamaha XS 750, Brian Filo on a custom-framed Yamaha XS 750-powered machine, and Brian Larrabure on a Ducati 750SS Imola replica.

Filo was able to hold off Hargis and Larrabure both days for the last step on the podium with his beautifully turned-out Shell Truitt bumblebee yellow machine.

The balance of the grid included, in order of finishing on Saturday, Larrabure, David Crussell on a 1972 Kawasaki H2R, and Mike Dixon riding a 1970 Yamaha XS.  On Sunday, Larrabure was fourth again, with Dixon fifth, and Crussell sixth.

“Last weekend, Tim Joyce swapped victories with Christopher Spargo who was on a two-stroke Yamaha and this weekend Tim had to deal with another two-stroke.  This series is putting on full display the diversity of road racing motorbikes during the 70s,” said Carl Anderson, AHRMA’s 2023 Chairman of the Board. “I can’t wait to see what happens during the rest of the season.”

“Nebraska is the home of the fruited plains, a far cry from the skyscrapers of New York.   I couldn’t be happier to spend the weekend in the sporadic sunshine watching NYC Norton’s rider Tim Joyce bringing home the trophies,” said Kenny Cummings of NYC Norton. “But as a class sponsor, I’m also proud to see the depth of field of the Formula 750 class remain incredibly strong. I can’t wait to do it again for rounds nine and ten at our home track at New Jersey Motorsports Park’s beautiful Thunderbolt Raceway in Millville, NJ circuit later this month.”

The annual Vintage Cup spotlights one of AHRMA’s road racing classes with extra attention on competitors in the selected class during each race event. Enhanced awards for the Vintage Cup competitors are presented separately from other class trophies during the Saturday awards ceremony at each AHRMA National Road Race event.

Highlights from each Formula 750 race will be reported in RoadracingWorld.com’s online edition. At the conclusion of each season, the perpetual Vintage Cup trophy will be engraved with the national champion winner’s name and presented to the winner at the National Awards Banquet to keep for one year.
