DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 19, 2018) – American Flat Track is pleased to announce that Indian Motorcycle factory rider Brad ‘The Bullet’ Baker will be Grand Marshal for the Indian Motorcycle Minnesota Mile at Canterbury Park on September 29.
Baker, who was injured in July and who’s been focused on his rehabilitation ever since, made his first post-injury race-day appearance at the Springfield Mile II in early September and thrilled the paddock and fans. His scheduled appearance at Canterbury Park as Grand Marshal in Indian Motorcycle’s back yard is sure to be thoroughly anticipated and appreciated.

“It’s an honor to be the Grand Marshal of the Indian Motorcycle Minnesota Mile,” said Baker. “Minnesota has been a second home to me during the last year, as I’ve been staying there with the Anderson family to train for the season. Indian Motorcycle is also from Minnesota, and it makes me happy that I can be there to represent them. The accident that changed my life happened there only nine weeks ago so it will be difficult; but nonetheless it’s a proud moment for me to be able to return.”

“We are extremely excited to have Brad join us as the Grand Marshal for the Indian Motorcycle Minnesota Mile,” said Cameron Gray, COO of AFT Events. “Brad was the first rider I connected with and he helped us to promote our first AFTE event. We are super pumped about him attending and his continued involvement with the American Flat Track community."

American Flat Track recently crowned national champions in its AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines and AFT Singles classes – Jared Mees and Dan Bromley, respectively – but the penultimate round on Canterbury Park’s challenging Mile course will undoubtedly generate hard-core action. There’s also a Friday night Industry Party, live music Saturday by Arch Allies (specializing in the music of Journey, Def Leppard, Boston, Styx and REO Speedwagon), the percussion perfection of the Minnesota Vikings Skol Line – the official drum line of the NFL’s Purple People Eaters – and much more for fans and family alike.

Tickets for the 2018 Indian Motorcycle Minnesota Mile at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN (a suburb of Minneapolis) start at just $35, with indoor and outdoor reserved seating going for just $45. There’s also an exclusive VIP Experience available, though be quick as tickets are going fast. Ticket options can be accessed here: http://www.canterburypark.com/events/ama-racing/ Look for additional details about this penultimate AFT event in the coming days.

We have three races coming up for the month of September on the 8th, 22nd, and the 29th.  The race on the 22nd is our annual Toby Jorgensen Memorial TT and 100cc 4-Stroke National (plus Junior National) event that you won't want to miss.  All 100cc National and Junior National riders will receive a ticket for a chance at winning an XR100 in the raffle. There will be 25 lap mains for the 100cc National riders and 15 laps for the Juniors. Also, a "100cc Dash" will be run for the top 100cc National heat winners.  The lucky 100cc Dash winner will receive a Nicky Hayden commemorative jacket.  The XR100 and commemorative jacket are courtesy of Joe Jack 43q and Al Weber. Thanks guys!

Prizes will be awarded to all 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place National and Junior National main event winners.

The 100cc Junior National riders must be between the ages of 10 to 13.  Maximum 4-stroke engine displacement is 124cc.

100cc National riders need to be 14 years or older.  Maximum 4-stroke engine displacement is 150cc.  Note:  Stock 150cc air cooled bikes are not eligible.

And of course, we will still be running all of our regular season District 36 classes too!
 This weekend on the 8th we are setting up and running the TT course as it will be run on the 22nd to give riders a chance to fine tune their set up for the big event on the 22nd.  Now's your chance to get that 100 out of the garage and dial it in out here this Saturday night!
Short track racing returns to the Lodi Cycle Bowl on September 29th, October 6th, and October 13th (** New Date **)
Our season finale double-header TT/ST will run on Saturday and Sunday October 20th & 21st.  High Point awards will be handed out to winners Saturday night.  On Sunday, after the afternoon races, we will have our end of the season BBQ by the Clubhouse.  Make sure you stop by and grab a bite!
Our updated schedule with the new dates and a Toby Jorgensen Memorial TT and 100cc 4-Stroke National flyer are attached.

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.
