Sideways Saturday Coming to Columbus, Ohio


AIMEXPO, North America’s Largest Powersports show, brings “Sideways Saturday” indoor flat track racing to Columbus, Ohio. At the core of powersports are events that support, engage, and keep the community excited and thriving. Sideways Saturday is a new indoor flat track race that will be held on the show floor of AIMExpo presented by Nationwide.

Johnny Lewis (Moto Anatomy & Flat Track Futures) will be joining the AIMExpo USA team along with premier Harley-Davidson dealer AD Farrow and fellow Flat Track racers in an indoor concrete exhibition race at this year’s AIMExpo.

It’s a great feeling to be part of the 2019 AIMExpo presented by Nationwide where flat track will be showcased. The flat track vibe is good right now; from American Flat Track to Harley-Davidson Hooligan racing in X Games and the international growth of the sport, it’s becoming one of the most interesting forms of racing. As a result, it’s catching the attention of some of the best off-road and road racers across the world.

Bringing the spirit of heritage racing to Columbus on Saturday, September 28th, this AMA-sanctioned Indoor racing event will feature hooligans, e-bikes, wild customs, and much more thanks to amateur and pro racers willing to bang bars and put it all on the line for a fun-loving crowd.

Sideways Saturday is a great event for Central Ohio. The fastest growing sport in the country is coming to Columbus. It’s a fun and exciting indoor flat track motorcycle race that brings families together as spectators or participants. We haven’t seen excitement like this since … well, we just haven’t seen it! Get ready Columbus, you’ll be getting sideways and lovin’ it!

Swapping uniformed pit crews and umbrella girls for hard-nosed racing on a sticky, soda syrup-drenched concrete floor, Sideways Saturday will bring together powersports industry leaders, influencers, racers, fans, and riders from across the country to enjoy one of the most entertaining forms of motorcycle racing.

Our host city of Columbus and the infrastructure of the Greater Columbus Convention Center allowed us to create a race on the show floor at the industry’s biggest trade show with the assistance of flat track veteran Johnny Lewis. We’re excited to be able to bring great racing to our industry event, pulling together all the elements of motorcycling that are important to us, and allowing attendees the opportunity to immerse themselves in everything two wheels. It’s going to be a great night and we’re excited to be working with Johnny, who is a true industry advocate and ambassador!
