AMA Motorcycle Road Racing is Returning With Wayne Rainey’s MotoAmerica to NJMP (New Jersey Motorsports Park) on September 9 – 11, 2016!

Motorcycle racing fans can once again rejoice because  Motorcycle Road Racing is returning to New Jersey at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, NJ.

This three-day event includes Superbike/Superstock 1000, Supersport and Superstock 600 races.  We look forward to seeing motorcycles from manufacturers like Aprilia, BMW, Ducati and MV Agusta plus Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki battling on track this year.  MotoAmerica is celebrating 40 years of AMA Motorcycle Racing this year.

We at We Ride Motorsports have believed that motorcycle road racing has never really reached its potential regarding its growth and marketing – efforts to both develop North American racers as well as to attract more fans to the such an exciting sport have been sorely lacking and have left much to be desired. MotoAmerica’s proclaimed intentions for road racing in North America are greatly anticipated in this sport that we all love. We wish Wayne Rainey and MotoAmerica tremendous success and hope to do all that we can to help them to achieve these goals!  We’ll see you at the races in 2015!

AMA Professional Road Racer Dane “Wolverine” Westby Died on Monday, 3.23.15

 

Professional AMA Racer Dane "Wolverine" Killed in Motorcycle Accident

We are stunned to learn that talented professional AMA motorcycle road racer Dane “Wolverine” Westby died in a motorcycle accident on the street near his parents home in Oklahoma on Monday night.

According to reports, Westby was heading home after dinner at his parent’s home when his motorcycle collided with a utility pole.

Authorities are still investigating, however, no mention has been made of other involved vehicles.

Westby was only 28 years old.  He was a promising AMA professional motorcycle road racer who had finished second in the 2012 AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike Championship.

NewsOn6 the local Oklahoma News Organization offered the following:

Family and friends are trying to understand how a professional motorcycle racer at the top of his sport was killed in an accident.

Dane Westby had just left his parents house Monday night from just having dinner when he crashed his motorcycle on Peoria, just north of Cherry Street.

Those who loved Westby, like his longtime friend Dustin Meador, didn’t waste any time hanging a cross on the utility pole he hit, in his memory.

“I think he was really fixing to shine and prove his talent,” Meador said.

When Westby wasn’t standing on two feet, it almost guaranteed he was riding on two wheels.

“He was a bicycle nut, he bicycles all the time. If you see Dane he’s either on a bicycle or a motorcycle,” Meador said.

Meador said he wasn’t just Westby’s former racing partner and friend, he said they were family.

“We’re not related, but I would consider him as close as a brother,” he said.

They grew up hanging out together at Kinetic Playground. Their parents were business partners at the motorcycle repair shop, a shop where Westby’s first race bike is waiting for a tune-up.

“This is where he started, right here. This motorcycle is where Dane Westby started,” said Meador.

Westby was a world-class road racer, known as The Wolverine. He’d won championships, raced the Daytona 200 and even had his share of wrecks.

That’s the hardest part for Meador, knowing such a skilled rider died in a crash with a utility pole in midtown Tulsa.

“We ride so fast on the track and we crash at over 100 miles an hour and we get up, often unscathed. For him to lose his life on the street, it’s just hard to comprehend,” Meador said.

Westby was adventurous, free-spirited, supportive, smart, full of life, and in an interview with his sponsor, Yamalube, he was loving the life he lived.

“There’s such a short time in my life where I’ll get to be ‘that guy.’ I get to stand up on the podium and everybody’s looking at him and I’m pouring the champagne on the trophy. It’s something I’ll never forget,” he said.

Westby is a friend that his family – on and off the track – will never forget.

“I feel proud to have worked with Dane Westby. He’s truly a top-notch professional,” Meador said.

Police said they don’t know yet what caused the crash, but said they don’t believe another vehicle was involved.

Westby’s friend went to the spot to see for himself and said, based off the skid marks, he thinks Westby hit his brakes to try and avoid something in the street.

Police said Westby was wearing a helmet and friends said he was also wearing full protective gear.
