We’re excited to continue paying tribute to our past with this series, and we’re looking forward to another action-packed season of racing for our amateur competitors.” The AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series recognizes national champions in period-correct classes that reflect the storied history of AMA dirt-track competition.
