Rossville, TN, August 25th, 2021 - Memphis Shades, the world’s leading brand of motorcycle fairings and windshields and the longest running sponsor of the Springfield Mile, has stepped up for the September Miles with the introduction of the Memphis Shades Babe DeMay Challenge, a $5000 winner-take-all “dash for cash” for AFT Production Twins.
Babe DeMay, a beloved Hall of Famer whose race shop had been in the Memphis Shades factory for 20 years, passed away in October of 2020. The folks at Memphis Shades thought the only fitting memorial would be a race in his honor September 4th and 5th.
American Flat Track motorcycle racing is America’s original “thrills, spills and chills” extreme sport, and Progressive AFT is a high adrenaline, competitive racing series that features world class athletes who reach 140 mph on the straights and 90 mph in the corners.
Progressive AFT races are televised on NBCSN and can be watched live on NBC Sports Gold.
