ROT is gearing up for our second annual ROT Flat Track Races. This year, we are proud to announce that we have partnered with JT Powersports, and this year everything is about Dirt, Circles and Speed. Witness some of the best in racing with over 12 classes of races across a broad multitude of motorcycle types, talent specifications, and raw craziness sometimes.
Starting on Thursday, come out and see Hooligan, Vintage and Open Pros. On Friday, we will open up the track to anyone where you can come and ‘Run what you Brung’, with no bike restrictions. And just because the sun goes down, doesn’t mean we are done because this year we are extending Friday races into the night. On Saturday, Hooligan and Open Pro races will make for the ultimate show – and a great way to close a flat track weekend.
ROT will offer a purse, free entries, and free camping to the Pros participating. We will have races for all levels.
Purchase your ROT Rally tickets for all access to some of the best flat track racing out at the Travis County Expo Center. Grandstand seating will line the front straightaway so everyone will have an incredible view. Bonus = beer gardens will be open and plentiful around the racing venue if you need to cool down during the races.
