The United States Classic Racing Association (USCRA) has announced that it will present the 2017 North American Vintage Invitational, presented by Vanson Leathers, September 8-10, at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey, in conjunction with the penultimate round of the 2017 MotoAmerica Series.

Through a unique partnership with MotoAmerica, the premier championship motorcycle road racing organization in North America, the USCRA will host a series of sprint races featuring vintage motorcycles dating to 1970 as part of MotoAmerica’ s Championship of New Jersey, presented by K&N Filters.

“We’re really looking forward to having the United States Classic Racing Association join us at New Jersey Motorsports Park,” said MotoAmerica partner Chuck Aksland. “I’ve been around motorcycles for my entire life and I always enjoy looking at motorcycles from our past and getting to see them up close and on track will be a lot of fun. We think MotoAmerica fans will really enjoy going back in time and seeing some of the motorcycles that make up a big part of road racing’s history in action at NJMP.”

Spectators will experience the action and excitement of vintage road racing at its best as the USCRA showcases a field of outstanding historic motorcycles and riders from across North America through an invitational process.

Scheduled to participate in the event are several machines of provenance, including: a 1967 MV Agusta 500/4, ex-Giacomo Agostini; a 1971-73 BSA A75R, Triple 3-cylinder, 745cc, Ex-Dick Mann; and a 1967 “Arter” Matchless G50.
