Welcome to the Vintage Flat Trackers web site. This page is dedicated to the continual revival of Americas true motorcycle sport, flat track oval and TT racing on fire breathing, nickel plated, ageless two wheeled monsters.   dennis@vft.org

      My wife and I had the good fortune to take a month long motor trip around the USA. Among the many stops at historic houses, art and history museums, national monuments and presidential homes, were the last of the major motorcycle museums I had not visited. The Barber Vintage Museum is obvious the crown jewel and not because of the sheer numbers, but the building and presentation are unbelievable. I meet Dennis Kanegae at the new Haas Museum and spent a very enjoyable morning there. It worth your time. I had often wondered about Wheels Through Time as I’m not a big H-D fan. Very impressive collection and the casual style works. Also it is near the Biltmore Estate, which is is the largest privately owned house in the United States. 35 bedrooms, 65 fireplaces, and 43 bathrooms.

      The AMA Hall of Fame has a lot historical competition machines on display and the Sturgis Museum was a wecome surprise when we realized we were at Mount Rushmore and Sturgis was just down the road on our way home.

      Probably the best automotive museum in the country is the Revs Institute in Naples, Florida. I love race cars and this museum has the Briggs Cunningham cars and the largest collection of Porsche race cars in the country. Also a Mercedes  W154 and other F1 cars. It’s to bad its so far away from the main stream as you really have to want to go there. We also stopped at the Petroleum Museum in Midland, Texas to see the Chaparral cars. Neat place. Next year we hope to do the Northeast again and visit the museums in New York and Maine that we haven't seen.  dennis vft

WFT Humboldt Half Mile Race Cancelled

Today's a sad and angry day for Westerm Flat Track, our riders, pit crew, fans and sponsors.
A small number (1-4) of self-serving, greedy, thoughtless, community-destroying residents of Ferndale California attacked this event, hiring a lawyer who threatened a lawsuit and an injunction order to block the race.  Their expressed reasons were just cover for their real agenda - a continuing vendetta in attempt to destroy an organization and a couple of individuals.  
Those people robbed the racing community and thousands of fans of a great day of family entertainment and Humboldt County of tens of thousands of dollars in revenue.
Humboldt County was ill-prepared for this attack even though they were well aware of this group's history of creating havoc in the very community in which they reside.  You may have already read this release.


Refunds Are In Process

Today, we are beginning the process of refunding all sponsorship, registration, membership and spectator money that we have received for this event.  We ask for your patience as it may take us a few days to process all of these refunds.  

Humboldt Citizens Speak Out!

We highly encourage anyone who lives in Humboldt County to pick up your phone or send an email to your County Supervisor and share your thoughts about our event and what happened in your community.  Since this is a County-owned facility, all five Supervisors have a responsibility for what happens at the Humboldt Fairgrounds, so it would be appropriate to contact all of them.

Our Humboldt Sponsors

We wish to publicly thank our Humboldt Half Mile sponsors.  Thank you for your kind and comforting news when we told you about the situation.  And thank you for your loyalty in not hesitating to commit to next year.

Hello Flat Track Race Fans & supporters, Although this comes a bit late, it comes with much gratitude for your continued support of Dan Rouits endeavor to keep the roots/history of flat track alive for us and for future generations. Without your tireless physical & financial help, keeping all the Museums memorabilia and assets in one place to enjoy would be impossible.
The 2 main fund raisers that I will continue to keep going each year will be "Movie Night" which is on the 3rd Saturday night in January from 6:00PM to 10:00ish PM and the "Annual Memorial Open House" the 3rd Sunday of May, from 10:00AM to 3:00PM PST. Both gatherings are in loving memory/tribute to Danny Rouit and his life and love of the people and machines involved with flat track racing.
I have to apologize to some of our most generous supporters that I failed to include on this years T-Shirts! Brian Bergen DBA B&M Transmissions, Jerry Turner DBA Turners Auto Wrecking, Scott Ellis DBA Ellis Construction just to name a few, plus any others I left out! Please contact me, Kathy Rouit, by phone or drop me a note to include you on next years shirt! These shoes of Dannys are impossible to fill, but we have to give it our best shot for his sake! This is what he wanted!
                                                                                                Sincerely with Love, Kathy

He's got one hell of a motorcycle collection — and one hell of a life story to go with it

Tom White had a plan.
The motorcycle entrepreneur was going to sell his multimillion-dollar parts company, buy a horse ranch on the Central Coast and retire to live the good life.
Fate had something else in store for him.
In 1997, his then-teenage son Bradley had a near-fatal motorcycle accident that left him blind and a quadriplegic. A few years later, his wife, Dani, suffered a series of brain seizures. She needed ongoing medical care, too.
