Post-Race Showtime

AMA at Road America 2013There is no form of motorsport with a better salute to the fans on the cool down lap than motorcycle racing. I have nothing against Zanardi style donuts but the pure showmanship that will be on display during the upcoming MotoAmerica round this weekend at Road America is not to be missed. Superbike riders will send the front tier skyward at various points around the track. A premium location starts at the exit of Turn 8 where riders in total control ride one wheel all the way down to Turn 9.

Three details I really like about this classic ride by Danny Eslick:

  1. The fan on the right, arm raised in a “Hell Yeah!”
  2. Danny Eslick looking directly at the camera making sure I got the shot.
  3. Sponsorship is placed on the underside of the bike knowing it would receive exposure on the cool down lap.

Life really is different on two wheels.
