The AMA Racing Vintage Dirt Track National Championship
Series recognizes national champions in period-correct classes that reflect the
storied history of AMA dirt-track competition. From the original factory Class
A racing in the 1920s to the Class C production-based structure that emerged
shortly after, dirt-track competition wrote much of the early history of racing

diverse eras of dirt track's history while avoiding non-traditional
modifications that violate the spirit of a vintage meet.
