About The AFM
The AFM (American Federation of Motorcyclists) is a non-profit California corporation that was founded in 1954 by a group of sport riding enthusiasts in the North Bay Area. It is the oldest racing organization in the country dedicated soley to motorcycle road racing.
Northern California has one of the largest populations of sport riders in the country. Many of those sport riders find their way from the areas mountain and canyon roads to the AFM and the race track. Many of them, after a season or two on the track, cut back or quit street racing when the relative safety of pushing their limits on the track becomes clear.
The AFM welcomes spectators and racers alike, and we try to provide the best show possible with the safest and most responsible crew you are likely to find. We are a volunteer organization and are always looking for interested people to join in the fun.

2019 Round 1 Race Report
AFM ROUND 1 - BUTTONWILLOW RACEWAY - MARCH 16-17, 2019
It has been a long winter; obviously, it feels this way every winter, time is fixed. After the close of our 2018 season at Thunderhill the waiting game was on. A game that would seemingly never end; I can not recall a wetter start to the track season in California.
But that is all in the past now. The only evidence of the slow start to 2019 at Buttonwillow was the lush green grass. The paddock was full, and the level of competition on track was stunning, from top to bottom.
Starting at the top, with the Hustle Hard Racing Formula Pacific class, things were tight. Andrew Lee was always going to be tough to beat, he took a hat-trick of wins home from the 2018 AFM opener at Buttonwillow, and with a Graves Kawasaki hauler behind him in the pits, knocking him off the top step was going to be a frightful task. Lee was not the only Motoamerica rider on the grid; however, first, he was joined by his new Graves Motorsports teammate, Canadian Braeden Ortt, although Ortt will be riding a 2019 ZX6R.
Bryce Prince was back with his Tuned Racing R6, and he too was ready to embarrass some big bikes. Omega Moto was present with their gorgeous R1 SBK, now with the incredibly quick Cameron Peterson on board....
