Milwaukee, Feb. 15—Grassroots indoor motorcycle racing action returns to Milwaukee this weekend and Harley-Davidson will be live-streaming the action from Mama Tried’s Flat Out Friday. Racing will take place on the concrete floor of the BMO Bradley Center arena on an oval circuit soaked with sticky Dr. Pepper syrup, and race fans can catch every lap on a Harley-Davidson Facebook Live broadcast beginning at 7 p.m. CST on Friday, Feb. 17.
Rusty Butcher (of the Harley Hooligans) aims to defend his title in the Hooligan class while AMA 450 Pros race for more than $15,000 in prize money in the Charlotte Kainz Memorial Race. Nine other classes will also be competing: Open amateur, four stroke brakeless, youth 85, open vintage, inappropriate, women, boonies, Z125 and Bultaco.
To check out the action live and in person, purchase tickets here.
In addition to Friday’s races, Harley-Davidson is sponsoring a full slate of Mama Tried events in Milwaukee throughout the weekend.
