Brammo to Race in TTXGP U.S. Final at Miller

This just posted on Brammo’s Facebook Page:

Brammo will be at Miller with Steve Atlas on the Empulse RR. This will be a great circuit for the teams with higher top ends like Mission and Lightning, so we hope they’re able to make it to show what’s possible on a “fast track”. Kudos to TTXGP for making something happen after the series was dealt a huge blow by the cancellation of the AMA races at VIR, an event outside of their control.

Miller Motorsports Park September 3rd and 4th Bike Fest:During bike fest, bikes from all over the region converge to race, show off and mingle. The racing is fun and the bikes are hot. And Brammo will be there to race in the TTXGP.

Miller Motorsports Park is about a 30 mile drive southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah.  That’s about a 12 hour drive from Ashland, Oregon, for the Brammo folks.  Good to hear that they will be there, considering the necessity of competing in, and finishing this race.
