Joyce wins at Blackhawk Farms but Mauk still leads Vintage Cup Championship

(August 11, 2021, Elora, Tennessee) – Tim Joyce is winning races while Andrew Mauk is still the points leader in the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) 2021 Vintage Cup.

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 17 and 18 of the 2021 Bridgestone Tires AHRMA National Historic Cup Roadrace Series, at Blackhawk Farms Raceway, in South Beloit, IL, on August 6 and 7.

Joyce’s twin victories were impressive, but Mauk was able to collect enough points with his two second-place finishes to maintain an overall lead in the series.

On Saturday, Joyce worked his way through traffic, took the lead and held it until taking victory on the Candy 500cc Manx Norton.  He would later report the victory was a challenge due to fuel starvation issues.

Rounding out the podium on Saturday were Andy Mauk in second, riding Keith Leighty’s Honda CB 450, and Wes Orloff, on Dale Coffman’s Honda CB 450, in third. The balance of Saturday’s finishers included Jerry Duke on a Ducati 350, and Andy Findling aboard on his BSA B50 normally ridden by Tony Read.

Sunday’s race saw Joyce again take the lead and the win while also battling the same fuel starvation problems.  Mauk finished a close second, with Duke completing the podium. Colton Roberts, on his Aermacchi Sprint, took fourth in a race-within-a-race with Findling, who was fifth.

“There’s no question Mauk has shown he is a contender but he’s got to win three of the remaining four  rounds to force a runoff with Timmy [Joyce] on Sunday at Barber,” said Kenny Cummings of NYC Norton. “It won’t be easy as he’s heading deep into Timmy’s home track territory. Little Talladega and Barber are the two remaining events on the AHRMA schedule for 2021.”

Rounds 19 and 20 will be at Talladega Gran Prix in Munford, AL on September 4-5 and rounds 21 and 22 will close the season at the Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, AL the weekend of October 9-10.

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.
