“It is an honor to unite the long history of flat track racing to the roots and heritage of the Harley-Davidson brand in a way that will positively propel the development of the sport in Canada”, states Aaron Hesmer, president, Flat Track Canada. “Harley-Davidson’s brand carries a strong history and loyalty, which is a great fit to our organization and brings an appeal to the sport unlike any other motorcycle brand.”
Harley-Davidson has been involved in the sport since the 1920s, and the XR750 currently holds the record as the most award-winning motorcycle in motorcycle racing history. Harley-Davidson has also recently introduced a new Street® model called the XG750A – the Harley-Davidson Street Rod™ (MSRP $10,399). As the Street Rod™ begins to make its way towards the racetrack, it too is on the verge of achieving race-winning legacy.
“Harley-Davidson Canada is excited to build upon our Flat Track Canada partnership, and elevate the experience for racers,” says Karen Mayberry, Harley-Davidson Canada. “This partnership allows us to further encourage the dreams and aspirations of Canadians in the motorcycle industry, supporting freedom of riding and the close bonds of camaraderie based on the love of this sport.”
There are twelve races in total starting May 19 until September 29. Race schedule and ticket purchase available at: www.flattrackcanada.com
