Permco AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days Elevates Pitbike Racing to New Heights

The American Motorcyclist Association will bring vintage form and modern pitbike racing together this July 26 at  Permco AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days presented by Yamaha.

The pitbike competition will welcome older riders competing on minibikes, some as small as 50cc. The competition will range from laid back to blitzing-fast action on purpose-built, highly modified race machines. A fun youth class also will be offered.

AMA-chartered promoter Bagger Racing League (BRL) is partnering with the AMA to promote and operate the pitbike program at 2024 Permco AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days.

As anticipation builds for 2024 Permco AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days presented by Yamaha, let’s take a look back some of the exciting happenings from last year’s event.When Allen Brotz makes his annual pilgrimage to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, there’s one thing he never leaves behind: his trusty cloth.

On the surface, it may seem silly to get excited over an average piece of cloth, but Brotz’s carries great significance, not only to him but to VMD as a whole. Since 1998, Brotz has collected the signatures of each AMA VMD grand marshal on his cloth, which depicts several road racers competing.

“I just thought it would be a neat way to keep them all together,” Brotz said.

Allen will have the opportunity to add the signature of 2024 VMD Grand Marshal Broc Glover to his cloth this year!
