AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance GNC Expert Singles will compete at six rounds, broken down into three Short Tracks and three TT, while the mighty Expert Twins will contest the remaining 11 rounds, consisting of six Half-Mile and five Mile tracks.
The 2012 season kicked off with a bang last month at the Daytona Flat Track with two riders taking their breakout Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship wins as Johnny Lewis held off Matt Weidman and Sammy Halbert for his first in the Thursday night final and Matt Weidman taking the checkered flag over Jared Mees in Friday’s main event.
USA Raceway has been renamed to Tucson Int’l Raceway and the recently announced Half-Mile event, scheduled for Oct. 6, 2012 as the penultimate round on the schedule, will now be called the Tucson half-mile.
Two previously announced TBA events which were in negotiation will not be included in the 2012 schedule bringing the final count to 17 rounds, with the 2012 AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com schedule coming to a close on Oct. 13 on the half-mile track at the LA County Fairplex in Pomona, Calif.
