(Go Fast, Turn Left)
If you've ever had the desire to pitch a motorcycle sideways in a corner, then accelerate through a controlled broad slide, dirt-track racing is the place for you. Dirt track races are run on various lengths of prepared oval tracks: short tracks, which are less than 2,250 feet in circumference; half-miles, measuring from 2,250 feet up to roughly five-eighths of a mile; and miles, which as the name implies are a mile in circumference.
As in all types of AMA amateur racing, classes are available for riders in different age groups and skill levels and on a wide variety of machine types and sizes. Each year, the amateur dirt-track season culminates with the AMA National Championships in short-track, and half-mile competition.
