COSTA MESA, Calif. – MotoAmerica has announced that it will host Flat Track at the Brickyard as part of the MotoAmerica Superbikes at the Brickyard weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Aug. 21-23.

The two days of racing will mark the first time motorcycle flat track racing has been held at the speedway.

Held in conjunction with round eight of the MotoAmerica Series, the Steve Nace Racing Promotions flat track events will feature Amateur and Pro-Am racing on the Brickyard’s quarter-mile dirt track that’s located inside turn three at the speedway on Aug. 21.

The following day, the AMA All-Stars will take over the oval with a full slate of racing, including a round of the Hooligan National Championship and a special invitational Bultaco Astro class. The Bultaco Astro class features many previous national number plate holders and former flat track champions all riding the Bultacos. Additionally, proceeds from the Bultaco Invitational will go to fund the Class of ’79, a charity for injured racers.

Spectator entry to the Flat Track at the Brickyard will be free when purchasing a MotoAmerica Superbikes at the Brickyard ticket.

“As most of our fans know, I started my career racing flat track and it’s always been near and dear to my heart,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “Everyone at MotoAmerica is pumped that we are going to be working with Steve Nace and his group to bring flat track racing to the Brickyard for the first time in conjunction with our five MotoAmerica classes. We will have a lot going on during our MotoAmerica Superbikes at the Brickyard event as we continue to build this into a real motorcycle festival. Our fans are going to love it.”

“We’re thrilled to bring our series to Indianapolis Motor Speedway as part of the MotoAmerica weekend,” said Steve Nace of SNRP. “It will give our racers and teams a great opportunity to race in front of a different crowd. Who doesn’t get excited about racing at the Brickyard? We’re all looking forward to August 21-23 and putting on a show for MotoAmerica and our flat track fans.”
