AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, July 21 to 23, is presented by Royal Enfield for the 28th year at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

LEXINGTON — The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course are hosting the Permco AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days this weekend.

The event, running July 21 to 23, is presented by Royal Enfield for the 28th year at the facility in north central Ohio.

It will be the 31st anniversary event overall for the AMA as one of the largest annual gatherings in the world focused solely on celebrating the history of motorcycling in America.

An abundance of racing, a massive swap meet, vendors, Q&A and information sessions on motorcycle topics, new demo rides, and other off-track entertainment choices are all in store for attendees. This year’s grand marshal is AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer and multi-talented road, motocross, AMA Supercross and Superbike racer Steve Wise.

The event serves as a fundraiser for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, a non-profit organization that works to preserve motorcycling in the United States.

Nearly all of the 380-acre property is utilized to host this annual motorcycle gathering including road racing on the traditional 2.4-mile, 15-turn natural terrain road course.
