Sons of Speed Antique Motorcycle Races to Expand In 2018

While the details are still being worked out, it appears Billy Lane’s popular Sons of Speed antique motorcycle boardtrack races will expand from one to three classes starting with the races in March 2018.

The next Sons of Speed races are scheduled for Bike Week on Saturday, March 17 at the New Smyrna Speedway, south of Daytona Beach.

At this time, the three classes of race bikes are:

45 Shoot-Out (45 cubic inch flathead racers)

Early 61s (the older and slower 61 cubic inch boardtrack racers)

Hot 61s (the faster 61 cubic inch boardtrack racers)

Check out this very short video, below, to give you some idea of the power, speed and fun these nearly 100 year old antique racers produce. And this was just practice!

We at American Iron Magazine have supported, encouraged and raced in the Sons of Speed events and encourage you to experience the amazing event.
