Brittney Olsen has etched her name in the record books as the first winner of the Sons of Speed boardtrack races. Riding her 1923 Harley “J” Model boardtracker, Olsen was fast all day on the banks of New Smyrna Speedway, the 20th Century Racing rider using her experience and finely tuned machine to rocket to the win.

“I just feel so proud and honored to be out here. It’s really awesome to be invited. I thought well, I race on dirt and that’s kind of a tricky surface but I’m really, really happy with my team and my mechanics back home.

Dirt, it’s how Americans race. That was the story in 1961 anyway, when Daytona still referred to a beach. Honda wanted to crack the American market, and that meant building dirt bikes; they’d dominated global GP racing, but were mostly absent on the rough stuff.

The Motorrad Vision Next 100 would have a self-balancing system that keeps the bike upright both in motion and when still.
