World-renowned Artist and Road Racer Supports AHRMA National Event

(August 22, 2023, Knoxville, Tennessee) Renowned artist and motorcycle road racer Larry Poons is adding an artistic touch to a world class motorsports festival.

Poons is donating an original, matted-and-framed, acrylic and watercolor on paper creation that will be auctioned during the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, AL.

Bids for the silent auction will be accepted in the AHRMA road race registration area until 5:00 p.m. Saturday, October 7 and a live auction will bring the auction to a conclusion during the road race awards ceremony Saturday evening.  Proceeds from the auction will benefit AHRMA, which is a not-for-profit organization.

“Larry was one of the first AHRMA racers I ever met, in the early 1990s,” said Carl Anderson, AHRMA’s 2023 Chairman of the Board.   “He continues to brighten the AHRMA paddock with his colorful personality, his generosity, and his enthusiasm for the sport.  We owe him many thanks for his continued support.”

Poons has competed in a variety of AHRMA road racing events for decades aboard Ducati and Seeley-framed machines.  He was the 500 Premier class Champion in 1998 and 2003.  In 2003, he and his wife Paula received AHRMA’s John & Ginny Demoisey Memorial Award for an outstanding husband and wife racing team.

His career as an artist was kickstarted in 1963 with his first solo exhibition at Richard Bellamy’s Green Gallery in New York.  His works have appeared in shows along with other notable artists including Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. He pioneered ground-breaking techniques along with his contemporary and collaborator Frank Stella.

Poons continues to create original works including the piece to be auctioned during the Barber Vintage Festival.  Read more about Larry Poons and his art at
