Flat Out Friday will kick off the weekend at 7:00 p.m. Feb. 17 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. More than 220 racers will compete in 11 classes ranging from amateur and professional to vintage, youth and hooligan. Racing on a flat track oval covered in Dr. Pepper syrup for traction, registered riders include flat track pro racer Jerad Mees, Hooligan riders Carey Hart and Mark “Rusty Butcher” Atkins and Milwaukee native Loyal Prach in the youth class.

    It is really a fun weekend, From the indoor flattrack, to the show, to the ice racing, it was a blast.
    My son and I were invited last year to display our ’77 XLCR we race at Bonneville, and Sunday morning up walked Bill Davidson with his parents Willy G and Nancy. Willy spent a considerable amount of time talking to my son about the bike, and told him XLCR #1 was sitting at home in his garage. He was kind enough to sign the top of our tank which ended the weekend with a bang. All sorts of cool people and even cooler motorcycles to see. Highly recommend going! 🙂

    This is a great event. Last year was the first time at this location, and the lighting was horrible, unless you were looking at the bikes along the west wall where the windows were. That was the ONLY downside. Super inspirational – great bikes, great people, great stories.

    Surprised to see this mentioned on this blog. I always look to this page as a reference of what not to do in the motorcycle world
