Dirt Track Champs, Evel Knievel Exhibit Take Center Stage at Vintage Rally 2013 at the National Motorcycle Museum

Mark your calendar, book a room and plan to attend the National Motorcycle Museum’s annual event at its new location in Anamosa, Iowa. The third annual Vintage Rally showcases new exhibits and motorcycling heroes including Evel Knievel, Bubba Shobert, and more. There’s also a great swap meet, two bike shows and a vintage ride, while the museum holds over 400 great motorcycles from Ariel to Zundapp and thousands of great pieces of art and memorabilia.  

Bubba Shobert, Jay Springsteen, Chris Carr. Hall of Famers, #1 plate guys, among the hardest racing men in Grand National Championship history. Meet them at Vintage Rally 2013. Get an autograph, ask them questions, hear their stories in the Panel Discussion. Or is it beach racing that you marvel at in racing history? Chat with Bill Tuman, Dick Klamfoth and Bobbie Hill plus John Tibben. All at the National Motorcycle Museum June 8 and 9 during Vintage Rally 2013. And all will be on hand as we dedicate Allstate Motorcycle Dirt Track Heroes, a new exhibit on the Grand National Championship with almost 30 race winning Harleys, Triumphs, Yamahas, BSA's, Indians, Hondas, Kawasakis and even a Matchless. Plus leathers, helmets, even a special exhibit featuring Ken Maely and his steel shoe making mastery. Authors Greg Pearson and Gerald Foster will have plenty of their books on dirt track racing so you can get your copy, maybe add some champions' autographs.
