The Warm Up® Races
Flat Track Motorcycle and Quad Races
The Warm Up®
It is almost news…if things go as planned, we will be hosting the first of The Warm Up® events on Thursday night July 18, 2013 as an AMA All Star National Flat Track race. The professional motorcycle and quad flat track event will be held at the Billings Motorsports Park, approximately 6 miles north of Billings on Highway 87. The last time motorcycles ran on the wide 3/8 mi track, AMA Pro Flat Track star Stevie Bonsey was in town to take the win. The BMP track is a 50′ wide dirt track, just a bit longer than 3/8 mi. With the width, the new track surface, grandstands and permanent lighting system installed, it is expected that a number of the AMA Grand National Flat Track Expert and Pro-Singles competitors will be stopping in Billings on their way to the west coast. The classes are not set yet, but there is a chance that we will see both singles and twins (including the throaty Harley twins!) on the track. As we have seen in the past, the combination of a big pro purse and the BMP track makes for some wild racing, with bikes and quads going 3 and 4 abreast. Fast and furious racing, and the only national level motorcycle racing event in 2013 in the surrounding 6 state area.

AMA Grand National Singles in Montana in 2008
The AMA Grand National Flat Track series made a stop in Billings, Montana in 2008. Since 2003, The Warm Up, held the weekend before the Sturgis Rally each year, has included hundreds of profesisonal and up-and-coming motorcycle and quad flat track racers. In 2008, the best athletes in the sport of professional flat track came to Billings to compete on the MetraPark 1/2 mi dirt track. AMA pro racers from the US, Canada, Australia and Japan were on hand to battle it out under the beautiful Montana Big Sky. The two day event was the first of its kind for Montana, and the only AMA GNC race west of the Mississippi in 2008.
Congratulations to Kenny Coolbeth for winning the first ever GNC Singles race in Montana, and moving on to win his 3rd consecutive GNC Twins Number One plate in 2008. Great Job Kenny!
