Spring Poker Run is scheduled for Sunday, May 17, 2015. We will offer two routes for this event, just as we did for the 2014 Bruce’s Turkey Run. Choose between a leisurely all-asphalt road ride, and a more challenging Adventure Ride including gravel roads and dirt lanes. GPS data will be available for download to your device.
Stars of Tomorrow Flat Track Series TT is scheduled for Sunday, July 19, 2015. This is a Pro-Am event featuring a full schedule of District 17 Amateur classes PLUS the two Pro classes race fans are accustomed to seeing. Come out and support all the young, up-and-coming amateur racers.
AMA Grand National Championship TT is scheduled for Sunday, August 16, 2015. This is the event that PMC is known for… a real fan favorite. Watch all the top-ranked professionals – the best in the sport – race their hearts out to break Henry Wile’s record-setting streak of ten consecutive wins. You won’t want to miss it.
Bruce’s Turkey Run - Ride and Dinner, is scheduled for Saturday and/or Sunday, September 12 and/or 13, 2015. As you can tell by the dates we are considering a Saturday ride in place of, or in addition to, the Sunday ride. We plan to offer two routes as we did in 2014 – an all-asphalt road ride, and a more challenging Adventure Ride including gravel roads, tractor lanes and maybe a water crossing!
AMA District 17 2-Day Observed Trials is planned for the weekend of September 19 and 20. This is fun to watch, as riders test their skills, balance and timing. Unlike many forms of motorcycle competition, spectators can get very close to the action.
All of the scheduled events for 2014 are complete. Mother nature tossed us a couple of curve balls our way year, in the form of heavy rains. PMC had to cancel the Stars of Tomorrow & Heroes of Today TT races schedule for Sunday, July 13, due to heavy rains just days before the event. This was very disappointing on a number of levels. One, this event was PMC’s schedule stop in the Stars of Tomorrow Flat Track Series, a new program focused on District 17 Amateur Flat Track racing. Our July event was also a tribute to war veterans; our Heroes of Today. To make matters worse, the rescheduled date of Sunday, August 24, was also rained out due to a really gully washer on Saturday, August 23.
The Budweiser / AMA Pro Grand National Championship TT race on August was a success. Attendance was good despite a cloudy sky in the morning. Race fans who came to the event, saw some very good racing action in both Pro Singles and Expert Singles. The big news of the day was Henry Wiles winning the Expert Singles main event, making that his tenth consecutive GNC TT win at the PMC Race Park.
Our two road ride / poker runs were successful as well. The legendary Bruce’s Turkey Run held on Sunday, September 14, offered something new this year. Actually, it was something old… an Adventure Touring route that took riders down some rugged gravel roads. This was a huge throwback, since the original Turkey Runs hosted by Bruce Walters and PMC, was an On/Off Road ride, with riders slogging through creeks and navigating dirt roads.
The District 17 Two-Day Observed Trials was also a hit, with many new sections for riders to test their balance, agility, timing and judgment. Great weather made the conditions ideal for negotiating logs, rocks, off-camber hillsides and chunks of concrete slabs. What a way to wrap up the year.
