For all of you My Life at Speed fans near the historic Pomona Half-Mile in Southern California, this Saturday is a “must see” event. The AMA Pro Racing Flat Track Finals are back at Pomona!! If you haven’t had a chance to see a Flat Track Race in person, it is some of the craziest, coolest, “flat out” racing around. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to race against a Flat Track Legend, Joe Kopp, who I now call a good friend. His long time sponsor and mentor, George Latus, allowed us to follow Joe to the races and below, is a video we did for Latus Harley Davidson. I think it gives you a great idea of the action you will see. There is also an autograph signing session on Saturday Night, with some of the sports legends including another one of my good buddies, Eddie Mulder.
