Short Track: Digger Helm National

Short Track: The Digger Helm National from Peckhammer on Vimeo.

Digger Helm and Eddie Mulder combine forces each September to put on The Digger Helm National. Mulder has described this Flat Track race as a fist fight in the bull ring. There’s lots of physical contact, and lots of sideways racing. If you’ve never seen one of the oldest forms of motorcycle racing in this country, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Don’t expect to see a bunch of gray haired old farts puttering around in the dirt. These racers move. And there is plenty of young blood out there too, from the youth division right up to contemporary National-level racers such as Joe Kopp and Jared Mees.
