AMA Supermoto National Championship Series kicks off March 7 in Las Vegas, Nev.

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association and USA Supermoto are pleased to announce the AMA Supermoto National Championship Series. The six-round series will kick off at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nev., on March 7.

“Supermoto is an amazing sport to watch and an even more amazing sport to compete in,” said AMA Vice President of Operations Jeff Massey. “Since the beginning, supermoto has needed a true grass-roots network U.S. to help sustain the top level of competition. This series will help accomplish that goal by giving today’s amateur and sportsman-level competitors a place to race, feeding the sport with expert-level talent going forward, and providing a showcase for sponsors and teams active in the discipline.”

The AMA Supermoto National Championship Series will include novice, youth, intermediate, age- and displacement-based classes as well as classes that will feature some of the best supermoto talent in the country. Online registration will be available soon at www.amanationalsupermoto.com.

“We had a great inaugural season in 2013, and we’re excited to step up our program for the new season as an AMA National Championship Series,” said Matt Stewart, president of USA Supermoto, the AMA’s promoting partner for the series. “We have been working with the AMA for some time to strengthen supermoto racing in the United States, and everything has been positive. We’re looking forward to watching our racers compete for AMA national No. 1 plates in 2014.”

Supermoto combines exciting elements of motocross, dirt track and road racing into one dynamic discipline. It features jumps, high-speed straights and both dirt and asphalt surfaces. Track variations and venues can vary considerably. Supermoto events have taken place at purpose-built facilities, in sports stadiums, on casino properties and on closed-course cityscape street layouts.

The discipline originated in the United States in the late 1970s and was initially popularized by the “Superbikers” show that featured the best dirt trackers, motocrossers and road racers of the time.

REDLINE MOTORSPORTS JOINS WEIG RACING AS TITLE SPONSOR FOR 2014 SEASON

redlinelogo

I am really excited to announce that on January 30th Redline Motorsports signed up and offered its support as a title sponsor for the 2014 supermoto race season. Redline Motorsports is the # 1 volume dealer in the state of Washington where they offer a huge selection of pre-owned motorcycles, parts, as well as fantastic service. Redline has been making deals and helping people from all over the world get on two wheels through their website for many years. Another well known fact in the Pacific Northwest is that Redline Motorsports is a regular hangout and workplace for the greatest dyno tuner in the northwest, Nels Byersdorf. If you are a racer and haven’t had your bike on Nel’s Dyno , you are truly missing out.

Please visit www.BUYREDLINE.com to check out the latest sales inventory and rock bottom pricing.

I am certainly going to have to work hard to do well this season because the USA Pro Supermoto race grids are stacked with talent, but with this added support from Redline Motorsports I have no doubt that 2014 is going to be the most successful race season I have had yet. I have been busting my butt in the gym and on the bike this winter in order to make sure that I am physically prepared for a great race season and I hope that many of you will be there to take part in the action as a fellow racer or a fan in the stands cheering for us. My complete race schedule can be found on this page: http://weigracing.com/scheduler/

Once again, I would like to thank David Slater and the entire staff at Redline Motorsports for their support this season. I highly encourage all of you to check out www.BUYREDLINE.com the next time you are looking for a motorcycle to purchase, parts to buy, or to get service work performed. It pays to support those shops that are involved in and supporting our sport.

SST On The Strip At Caesars Palace

vegas_ban_2c1-520x211

Charlotte, N.C. (October 18, 2013) – Caesars Palace Las Vegas has hosted some of the greatest entertainment acts in the world – from Evel Knievel, to Frank Sinatra and Celine Dion, to the Formula One World Championship events in 1981 and 1982. On Thursday, November 7, 2013, taking part simultaneously with the automotive industry’s premier trade show, SEMA, Las Vegas history will once again be made as the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks™ event (SST) makes its way to Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip.
The race track for this special one-day only event will be constructed in front of Caesars Palace. High-flying SST trucks will propel past The Colosseum and through the Caesars Palace marquee. Fans will be thoroughly entertained as the high horse-powered SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks battle door-to-door, drifting around the seven-turn asphalt racecourse and flying over specially constructed metal ramps.This event is open to the public. Tickets can purchased onsite at Caesars Palace or in advance at http://www.stadiumsupertrucks.com.

An event at Caesars has long been a vision of series President, Robby Gordon. The unique form of racing that SST offers was immensely popular more than 20 years ago – known then as the Mickey Thompson Off-Road Championship – and fittingly Gordon, one of the world’s greatest off-road racers, has brought it back to life.

“Bringing SST to Caesars during SEMA Show week, the world’s most premier automotive specialty products trade event,is something unheard of,” said Gordon. “We would like to thank everyone at Caesars Palace and The Forum Shops at Caesars for giving us the opportunity to present a race like this. Getting to race SST trucks on this property is something phenomenal.”

“Through the years Caesars Palace has always set the standard and continually raised the bar on the Las Vegas Strip,” said Caesars Palace Regional President Gary Selesner. “An event like this is special because it pays homage to the historical attention-grabbing events that Caesars Palace is known for – like Evel Knievel and the Formula One races, yet also brings forth a new element of exciting entertainment for our guests. We are thrilled to welcome SST with this monumental event and encourage locals and race fans alike to join in on the action.”

In addition to the SST lineup, USA Pro SuperMoto and Modified Trophy Karts will be competing with a full program of qualifying and main events.
Keep up with all the latest news and results on SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Series by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter.

On the day of the event, access to the valet at The Forum Shops will be limited.CAESARS PALACE

World-renowned Las Vegas hotel and casino, Caesars Palace features 3,960 hotel guest rooms and suites, including the brand new 181-room Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace and Forbes Star Award-winning The Laurel Collection by Caesars Palace.

SoCal Supermoto launches a new website in honor of my 1 year Sumo Birthday! ;)

It’s my birthday and I’ll toot if I want to.
302449_10151117591880914_2099239302_n
(pic from my first supermoto trackday)

I have been ranting and raving about this stinkin’ So Cal Supermoto company and the nut job Brian that runs it for about 15 months now…. I feel it’s pretty warranted, here’s why: June of 2012 I signed up for a SoCal Supermoto school for the very first time. I fell in love with it from the very first session of the day.

Fast forward 3 months and it is September of 2012 – I built my first supermoto race bike and went racing for the first time.

246444_110173912469426_2011898752_n
(pic of my first supermoto bike and race)

That’s right, one year ago this month I raced Supermoto for the very first time and now one year later I am signed up to race in my 2nd PRO race and I am finishing on the podium in just about every single race that I enter. This is all due in large part to the introduction to supermoto and the training that I have received along the way from So Cal Supermoto.
As a celebration for my one year anniversary of owning and racing a supermoto race bike, SoCal Supermoto has completely redesigned and launched a new website. Check it out: www.socalsupermoto.com

(ok.. perhaps its just a coincidence that they created a new site on my birthday… but thats the story I am sticking with)

(pic of me getting ready to kick butt at the local race series just last month)

Go check their calendar and find a date that works for your schedule and then do yourself a huge favor and give supermoto a try, you will love it!
