At last year’s Law Tigers American Flat Track Arizona Mile, fans were treated to one of the closest finishes in AFT Twins history, with Indian Motorcycle factory rider Bryan Smith pulling out a half-bike margin win over teammate Brad Baker.
In the AFT Singles class, Shayna Texter took her first win of the season – and her first National win in nearly four years – on her Honda CRF450R. With the thundering, large-displacement AFT Twins and 450cc-class AFT Singles bikes in action, this year’s Mile is sure to offer the same sort of heart-pounding, wheel-to-racing.
There’s a lot more to see and experience over and above the racing action, too. This year’s ’70s/’80s ‘Throwback’ theme means you can break out your best Evel Knievel or On Any Sunday T-shirts, boogie to a live band, take part in the ‘70s/’80s costume contest, enjoy the vintage motorcycle show, and check out the vendor row with great brands and items. New for 2018 is the Arizona Mile Celebrity Mini Bike Race presented by Arizona Mini Bike and Go Kart. This mini bike race will pit local TV, radio and media personalities against each other in a three-round, winner-take-all format.
Tickets for this year’s event go on-sale Thursday, February 15 at 9 am PDT at ArizonaMile.com. Tickets start at just $39, with lots of other options including VIP trackside or rooftop, air-conditioned Turf Club & Club House, and much more.
