1999 – Aprilia Cup

28 Bikes, 13 Crashes, One Jump Over A Drainage Ditch: 
Racing In The Aprilia Cup At Pocono

By Sam Fleming

For the past few years we have tossed all the race equipment in the trailer and trucked it up to Pocono Raceway for F-USA weekend. We never race. We usually just go to help out with the Team Hammer Advanced Riding School and let the AOD pit crew mess around on the track with their streetbikes.

The track, like the F-USA series, struck me as being pretty impressive in 1997. Both have degraded in tandem such that the moniker "Formula Pocono" is becoming increasing apt.
