LAS VEGAS – Following record sales in 2017, this year’s 27th annual Mecum Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction will feature an estimated 1,750 antique, vintage and collectible motorcycles to cross the auction block Tuesday, Jan. 23 through Saturday, Jan. 27 inside the South Point Arena and Equestrian Center and Priefert Pavilion. The extravaganza has become an annual gathering of consignors, buyers and spectators sharing a passion for the history, beauty and camaraderie among enthusiasts from around the world.
     Featured collections and offerings abound in the 2018 auction lineup, with many historic race bikes and more among them including Jeff Ward’s Championship-winning “Works” 1985 Kawasaki SR250, a 1911 Flying Merkel Single, a five-time national championship-winning 1948 Vincent Rapide Series B Hillclimber, the first production bike built and sold by Eric Buell—a 1984 Buell RW750—and so much more.
     Among the auction’s seven featured private collections are 160-plus consignments from collector Tom Reese, who holds a long-term goal of presenting the world’s finest dirt-bike museum: the Moto Armory. From Aprilla to Zundapp, all off-road racing disciplines are represented within the Reese assemblage, whether it is MX, ISDT, Flat Track, Hill Climb or Trials bikes. From Malcolm Smith’s gold-medal original 1967 Husqvarna ISDT to Chris Carr’s Harley XR750—this offering has it all.
     From his own private assemblage of investment-grade motorcycles, Ray Hott will also bring a selection of offerings, which will include seven no-reserve motorcycles donning the badges of Harley-Davidson, Indian, Motobecane and Whizzer. Bob Weaver, Jeff Schwartz, Roger Hanke and several others will bring collection offerings as well, and the auction will be further headlined by the main-attraction sale of the Excelsior-Henderson brand and its related intellectual property.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 21, 2017) – American Flat Track has announced its 18-race calendar for the 2018 season, which begins with the DAYTONA TT at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday, March 15, 2018, and finishes up just a stone’s throw from downtown New York City. The Meadowlands Mile, an incredible new event to be held on the mile-long horse track at the famed Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment facility in East Rutherford, New Jersey, wraps up the season on October 6.

America’s original extreme sport enters its 66th consecutive year of competition in 2018, and the championship will once again launch during DAYTONA Bike Week, but this time on a bigger, better and faster DAYTONA TT circuit built inside the legendary tri-oval at the World Center of Racing. Seven-time Grand National Champion Chris Carr has redesigned the track to better showcase the speed and ferocity of pro flat track competition.

Comprised of eight Mile races, five Half-Miles, three TTs, and two Short Track events, the 2018 series features two new venues – the mile track at New Jersey’s Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment and the short track at Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, New York – and one location returning to the calendar, the mile track at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota. Both the Minnesota Mile and Meadowlands Mile will take place at high-end horse-racing facilities with modern amenities, while Weedsport Speedway, situated between Rochester and Syracuse, New York, recently received significant upgrades and is now hailed as one of the country’s finest dirt speedways.

American Flat Track enters its second year of broadcast coverage on NBCSN and fifth year of live streaming coverage on FansChoice.tv. The American Flat Track series concluded 2017 with record-breaking TV and live streaming numbers that resulted in the largest viewing audience in the storied history of the sport. An enhanced broadcast package, featuring improved coverage and exciting new broadcast airdates, is planned for 2018 and will be announced in the coming months.

Tickets for the 2018 running of the DAYTONA TT are now on sale and going fast. To reserve your seats at the World Center of Racing for the biggest spectacle of DAYTONA Bike Week, visit Daytona International Speedway’s website http://www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or call 1-800-PITSHOP.
