The National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa, will tell the Dirt Track Heroes story in an in depth special exhibit opening later this year. Dirt track is no doubt, the most all-American form of motorcycle racing. A century ago, born on horse racing tracks, man and machine still duel it out to this day for the podium finish. But winning the GNC called for extreme talent from 1954 to 1985. When riders had to be masters of the Mile, these were the glory days. They earn road racing points to lock up the Grand National Championship at the short track and TT .
The Dirt Track Heroes exhibit will focus on this period, but also cover dynamic bikes and riders up into the 1990′s.The exhibit will be completed in mid-May 2013 and will be dedicated June 8 as part of the Vintage Rally 2013, which will be held June 8 and 9, 2013, in Anamosa, Iowa.
