Re: Flattrack Races

Its a vintage racing organization but thy always run a modern class or two as well. Vintage is bikes from 60's- early 80's depending on class.

Re: Flattrack Races

Races have been cancelled due to safety concerns as I have been told. There will still be cars running though. The Waco half mile though is still on for April 1st & 2nd.

Re: Flattrack Races

Waco races have been cancelled due to high chances of rain this weekend. I don't know if they will reschedule sometime soon or wait until October.

Re: Flattrack Races

RAT'S I wanted to ride up there and watch. Being a old flattracker myself it would be great to see a race again. Still have my Ken Maley shoe in the garage.

Re: Flattrack Races

The VDTRA says though the races are cancelled, there will be an open practice for anyone that wants to show up and turn some laps until the rain starts. Practice will start at 10:30 AM.
