The Indy Mile will run again at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in 2008, the night before the Indianapolis GP race. The Indy Mile hasn’t run since 1999 and what a perfect time to bring it back when so many will be in attendance for the MotoGP.
Flat Track is about as American as it gets in motorcycle racing yet it doesn’t get the coverage of many other racing formats nor is it as popular. That seems to be the reason Harley Davidson is releasing their new XR1200 in Europe and other countries around the world and not in the U.S., but, maybe they were thinking ahead and maybe they knew the Indy Mile was coming back. Wouldn’t the return of the Indy Mile be the perfect reason to bring out the XR1200 here? If Harley isn’t already thinking along these lines, they should be.
