SMDTRA Sanctioned!
A great track that is being resurrected by an inmate that lives and breathes old skool. It's an infectious motorcycle fever he can offer to young and old alike.

This is a link to the site listed above

Should be a great evening of racing. Hope to see lots of inmates there! I have a feeling if you bring it, you can run it one the track (for the half-time show) :lol3 :evil Shooting flames are a plus.

The SEMDTRA race on Sept 7 will be quite an event, the Open Pro class will have a couple of "Surprises" in it!?!? Our "Local" Pro riders better be extra ready!!! It sure would be nice to be in the truck with the RIDEAcademy crew heading for Springfield... Stoopid job! RIDEAcademy will be representing at the Tar Heel race.

Anybody that will be in Springfield on Thursday, the RIDEAcademy will be doing a one day school. Go by and check 'em out. Even if you don't participate you may get to hear Mike Hacker, "Deuce", Johnny Lewis, the Texters or a couple of other Pro riders giving tips to current and up n coming riders. The new RIDEAcademy training simulators will be in use and just watching that will change how you thought this "flat track thang" is done... Y'all be safe out there and think about us while we are at home being "responsible"

Just looking for a good time and relighting the flat track fire in our area... Did a Supercamp years ago and like you said, it was a hoot!!! Did a RIDEAcademy a couple of years ago and it was cool to be on my bike at speed at Aonia Pass, GA. with Jake Johnson "pushing" me around... We built some training simulators for Hack that he will debut at Springfield.

If the millionaire thing works out, look for a plane ticket in the mail to come hangout and run some laps...:deal

Graded the track this afternoon and started the watering process... It looks nice and has a good established base so it should make a fast track by Saturday night.

Fund raising auction Sept 7th
Tar Heel Speedway Auction
Just talked to Mike Hacker and he said he rounded up some cool stuff while he was at Indy to auction at the race Saturday night to raise some funds for
St. Baldrick's Foundation. We got stuff from Jared Mees, Kenny Coolbeth Jr, Johnny Lewis, Joe Kopp and Brad Baker... Oh yeah, and some dude named Hacker LOL!!! We can't thank these guys enough for chipping in. Bring your checkbook and pick up some cool Flattrack collectables and donate to a worthy cause during Chidhood Cancer Awareness Month. "Racing for a Reason"!!!

Oh yeah... And some junk from a Jake Johnson fella???

Great Event!!!!
Had a blast last night IT! :clap:clap:clap:clap

Very good cause and a lot of money was raised. Update us on the total when you get a chance.

This is what a real track owner should look like...

IT 400 09-08-2013 10:31 AM

Thanks for the support, it's always a better time when you and the CFO are in attendance. When the numbers are totaled we'll post it. I want to thank all the inmates that showed up and supported...

Mike Hacker... Joe Kopp ?
IT these CAN NOT be the same guys I knew back in the day. No, these guys were running out of Maroni's, partnered with Jones Powersports and riding to the races via "Dave Burks Motorsports." Kind of a low buck effort if I remember correctly, I donated work to do some sort of "Flaming Eyeball" graphic work on Kopp's XR one year.

No, can't be them... I do recall our, "Mike Hacker" returning a demo jet ski to the dealership (Jones Powersports) in (if I remember correctly) more than one piece. I think OUR Joe Kopp may have done some good one a KTM on year ;)


joleyjames123 09-08-2013 01:25 PM

Yes. Now the track is completed fine.

AJay112 09-08-2013 01:45 PM

Tell me more of this, "Streetbike" racing... I have a multi-purpose 1200 Sportster with a neat paintjob that needs scuffin in ;)

AJay - I want... no, make that, "Need" to go fast.

Times are GMT -7.   It's 01:04 PM.
