After a 20-year absence, flat track motorcycle racing is coming back to Maine this Saturday at the Farmington Fairgrounds. Organized by the Franklin County chapter of the United Bikers of Maine, the event is expected to draw racers from as far away as Massachusetts.
In a nod to the sport’s origins, the competition is being held on the horse racing track at the Farmington Fairgrounds. Motorcycle racing got its start more than 100 years ago at similar tracks around the country with local riders challenging each other for trophies and bragging rights.
