The program is free with a paid museum admission, and it will be hosted by emcee Ricky Elliott. Amongst the featured speakers are American Motorcyclist Ass’n (AMA) Pro Racing official Daniel Johnsen, veteran riders John Tibben and Bob Weirbach, former AMA Grand National champion Joe Kopp, and current AMA flat-trackers Sammy Halbert, Henry Wiles, past Knoxville winner Jared Mees, Bryan Smith, Rob Pearson, Aaron King and past Knoxville winner Shayna Texter.

“We are very excited to be offering a Flat-Track 101 program about the lives and careers of select veterans, current champions, and up-and-comers in the sport of AMA flat-track motorcycle racing,” said museum volunteer Bob Colbert. “My thanks to Matt George, Brian Stickel and Bob Weirbach for helping make this happen, as June 13-15 has the potential to be a huge weekend featuring the best of the AMA flat-track motorcycle riders and the best of the World of Outlaws (WoO) dirt-track sprint car racers. Our program, and the vintage racing bikes in the museum, will just add to the excitement of the entire AMA/WoO weekend.”
