Mauk retains Vintage Cup Championship lead after Talladega Gran Prix Wins

(Elora, Tennessee) – Andrew Mauk won two key races but Tim Joyce still has a chance to win the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) 2021 Vintage Cup championship.

The Vintage Cup, showcasing the 500 Premier class for 2021, sponsored by Roadracing World (roadracingworld.com) and NYC Norton (nycnorton.com) was featured during rounds 19 and 20 of the 2021 Bridgestone Tires AHRMA National Historic Cup Roadrace Series, at Talladega Gran Prix Raceway, Munford, Al, on September 4 and 5.

On September 4, Mauk, riding Keith Leighty’s Honda CB450, led from the green flag to the checkered flag.  Joyce had a complicated weekend as the 500cc Candy Manx he typically races experienced mechanical problems.  Joyce ultimately raced John Turner’s BMW to a second-place finish.

Tony Read took third aboard Andy Findlings’ BSA Goldstar and Jerry Duke was fourth on his Ducati 350.

Sunday’s race was a replay of Saturday, with Mauk taking first, Joyce second, Read third and Duke fourth.

“Andrew Mauk is the dark horse, but he’s been here all along, showing he’s a serious force to be reckoned with,” said said Kenny Cummings of NYC Norton. “Leading Tim Joyce in any championship is a big feat and Andrew is getting it done.

Mauk now leads the 2021 championship by 171 points.  However, Joyce can still take the title depending on how the pair finish during the final two rounds at the Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, AL October 9 and 10.

“Statistically, Andrew needs to win both days.  If Tim wins on one of those days, he will prevail and take home the Vintage Cup.  We are gonna have a slamma in Alabama,” said Cummings.

A special 2021 Vintage Cup Trophy will be awarded to the 500 Premier class winner at select events including Roebling Road, Heartland Motorsports Park, New Jersey Motorsports Park, Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca and Barber Motorsports Park.  Race dates and event registration links are available at: ahrma.org/schedules-results.
