4th Annual Indy Mile Pre-Race Party to Feature AMA Pro Road Racing and Grand National Flat Track Racers.

Upper Arlington, OH (August 9, 2012) - The Team Ohio Racing #26 Harley Davidson XR1200 crew will join fellow AMA Pro  Vance & Hines XR1200 and AMA Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Flat Track racers at The 4th Annual Night Before the Indy Mile Race Party. The pre-race party will be held at Indianapolis Southside Harley-Davidson & Buell on Friday August 17th, starting at 2PM and ending at 8PM.

In attendance will be AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Flat Track racers Kenny Coolbeth, Dan Ingram, Nicole Cheza, Willy McCoy and Mike Martin. Team Ohio Racing will bring out their #26 Oxford Consulting Group/RevZilla.com/RIDER Insurance XR1200 Harley-Davidson and Wounded Warrior Project Alumni pit crew immediately after their qualifying session. The pre-race party will have free food, DJ, autograph signing sessions, racer Q&A and a silent auction to benefit the STEEL SHOE FUND.

Team Ohio Racing’s team owner and rider Pete Cline stated “I think thissouthsideharley.com is a great opportunity to cross-market the XR1200 road racer to the AMA Pro Flat Track crowd. When we had the bike on display at Lima in June, the crowd was very receptive to the XR road race series. The flat track riding talent that will at the dealership is pretty amazing, and to be included with those riders is very humbling. I hope we can get some more XR1200 racers to come to Southside Harley-Davidson & Buell. We want to highlight our working relationship with the Wounded Warrior Project Alumni crew, and we hope people can come out and say hello to our crew and fellow racers.”

Sherry Long, Advertising and Marketing Director, Indianapolis Southside Harley-Davidson & Buell, “Our pre-race party has always been about the racers. With the on stage interviews planned for this event, the racers can share their story with the crowd. Motorcycle race fans that attend can expect an up close and personal experience with the racers. Team Ohio Racing & the Wounded Warrior Project Alumni Pit Crew will be a great addition to this year’s event. We are looking forward to meeting them.”
