Get on the App! Free Listing

 Well we stepped away from promoting our specific events. Yet, we have a couple of opportunities for events that want to bring Flat Track and Speedway to their venues. We "handed off Hohenwald to Chris Boone Promotions. So with Chris and Kolby and others, there is a lot of Flat Track in this area. 

We have actually postponed our Calsonic event until February 2022. Lofty goals for this event so stay tuned for that announcement. 

Really cool to change the Celebration of Speed App to more of an information source for everyone to benefit. One "click" and you can see where the races are across the USA. We broke it down by region, then State, then specific promoters. Encourage your local track to send us their information and schedules. It's a free App to download and free to list your events.

Racing is going to be "fresh and exciting" this year.

2021 race schedule

 Where is the 2021 AFT schedule? Perhaps uncertainty about lockdowns and the current political spectrum has things on hold. Perhaps it's just AFT securing the venues with promoters. As someone who promotes events I too am concerned with an uncertain environment. Rest assured, not conspiracy thinking. However, planning for different scenarios is prudent. 

Let's hope that the first few successful races of 2021 will continue throughout the year. Let's hope that in 2021 AFT will have a full schedule of races with a full set of grandstands. I would love to hear from anyone as to what the AFT schedule looks like and when we can expect to see it.

2020 is hind sight.

 For many 2020 was terrible. We were some of the fortunate ones. All our races took place. Brand new racers came out along with experienced racers from other tracks. Team AKZ from Poland came to Shelbyville. They inspired the whole event with enthusiasm. We had, arguably, one of the best Speedway events ever in the Tennessee Valley. 

The Tennessee National Raceway joined the Celebration of Speed for an 'epic' event. A beautiful 3/8 mile perfect track. Much of the Country was still shut down, so the riders came to Tennessee. 

We loaded up and went to Northern California for the Youth Speedway National Championships. A great trip that should definitely happen again. 

The year ended with the USA Speedway All Stars and the Boswell's Hooligan State Championship at Calsonic Arena. First time Live stream, went very well.  

It was a very good year for the Celebration of Speed and we look forward to 2021. We look forward to the Tennessee races and the return of some Cherokee, NC racing. What makes the Celebration of Speed series successful is you. You the volunteer, the racer, the sponsor, the track owners and the facility managers. So many friends joined us to create good times. 

Happy New Year to all of you

Shop Talk

 We should have an american made dirt bike. Polaris could do it. They have the engineering and technical experience. Polaris has off road experience in side by sides and ATV's. Obviously Dirt bikes aren't the same as ATV's. However, many items do cross over. Polaris also has the capacity to acquire another specialized OEM or technology. Japan and Europe can do it...Why can't the USA?
