On Sunday, August 31 of Labor Day weekend, the Bonneville Performance Triumph Factory team was back in Springfield, Illinois for the 2nd Springfield Mile AMA Pro Flat Track race of the season. This is the only venue that hosts 2 races every year and was historically the most important race of the flat track season. We improved on our performance of the Springfield Mile 1 on Memorial Day weekend, and finished in 11th place, after winning third in our heat race and transferring to the GNC Main Event.

Heat Race #1
When a rider is able to transfer to the main, the schedule gets a bit more relaxed because the team sits out all of the semi-final races. More attention can be given to preparing the bike and to the fans during open paddock.
I Rode the Mile – Special Event
The “Class of 79” sponsored a fundraising event at the Springfield Mile. For a donation, the contributor could ride a motorcycle around the Springfield Mile just before Opening Ceremonies. Our own PR Publicist, Christy Cottrell of Horsepower360 went around with Mikey Martin #91 on a Bonneville Performance customer bike, a modified 2008 Bonneville Black, complete with BP Mikuni Carb Kit, Oil Cooler Kit and Oil Pressure Gauge Kit.
