Me and my Buddy Gene, will be Heading down to Frederick Maryland tomorrow/4th, for the Races in Frederick.

This btw is a Pro Race, but Not a GNC Points Race. This Hotshoe Race will feature all the Top Guns racing for Cash !

NOTES -- This year's Fritchie Classic will be the first Hot Shoe race to combine Pro Twin and Expert Twins classes. The AMA made this move, which will be in effect for the rest of the season, to streamline the class structure and improve racing quality. The twins class will run according to the Expert Twins Class Technical Standards. ... Expert 750/1000-cc, Expert 450 Singles and Pro Sport 450 riders will compete in the Fritchie. Gates open at 10 a.m., heats begin shortly after noon. The purse is $10,000.
