Harley-Davidson Insurance was recently announced as a presenting sponsor of the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Vance & Hines double-header will be run as part of the Red Bull Indy GP weekend, August 26-28, 2011.
The paddock will be open to fans all three days, allowing access to the big bore bikes as well as the riders who dare to try to harness them. Chris Fillmore, Steve Rapp, and Kyle Wyman will be among the top regulars who will be competing against AMA Pro Daytona SportBike star Jason DiSalvo and 2010 British XR1200 Trophy Champion Jeremy McWilliams. Approximately thirty-five XR1200 riders will be traveling the Brickyard.
The races will run at 4:10 pm ET Saturday and 3:30 pm ET Sunday. If you can’t make it to the raceway, you can catch all the action on SPEED TV, which will be presenting a one-hour special featuring both races that will air Sunday, August 28, at 6 p.m. ET.
