To us, there’s nothing as thrilling as watching some of the fastest AMA professional flat track riders compete for the top spot at a half-mile race. The sounds of the track are indescribable unless you’ve been there—and surpassed only by speed of the bikes.
This year, we’re even more excited than usual, since we’ve sponsored the AMA Pro Flat Track team Zanotti Racing and their rider Jake Johnson. We’re proud that Johnson has agreed to be part of the Rinehart family. Johnson, under the banner of Zanotti Racing, is a two-time Grand National Champion, winning in 2010 and 2011, and currently sits in the #4 points position in the current 2016 season.
We hope you’ll join us and cheer for Jake Johnson at the Black Hills Half Mile AMA Pro Flat Track Race on Tuesday, August 9th. Gates open at 2:00 PM and the Opening Ceremonies start at 6:30 PM. Before the opening, from 5:15 until 6:15 PM, you can hang out with the riders in the pit for autographs. Track is located at Black Hills Speedway, 2467 Jolly Lane, Rapid City, SD 57703.
The race is part of the legendary Sturgis Rally, taking place until August 13th. Stick around after the race to see our new line of products at the Rinehart Truck at the corner of 5th and Lazelle. We’re happy to talk shop, give you advice about how to upgrade your ride, or make you a part of the Rinehart family by installing one of our performance exhaust systems on-site. Plus, if you come by on Monday, August 8th, you might be able to meet Jake Johnson in person before the race. Rumor is, he’ll be hanging out at the Rinehart Truck to greet fans on Monday, from 2pm to 4pm. Follow Rinehart on Facebook to make sure you have all the latest information about the Sturgis Rally. We don’t want you to miss a moment!
