Miss Brittney Olson

January 9, 2014

The mailbox continues to overflow!  Today’s item comes from Brittney Olson, wife of Matt Olson.  Brittney races a wonderful 1923 F head Harley short coupled racer that she and Matt built last year, and she has made this short two minute film about her efforts.  The Champion Sparkplug Company are awarding a scholarship for racers, and Brittney is the running to get it!  The winner will be announced soon, based on the votes awarded at the website:


Click on the link to see the clever video that she wrote and filmed about racing a clutchless single speeder at 70+mph on the dirt tracks of the midwest.


From time to time, we all ask about the future of our old bike hobby.  Where are the young people that will replace us?  Who will be riding these old machines in 20 years?  Here is the answer:  Brittney is not only riding and racing, but she is a very energetic enthusiast and is bringing more young people into the hobby.  She and Matt have been very active in the AMCA’s Youth program to bring youngsters into the fold by offering their own time and energy to the next generation.  If Champion can support her (through our votes), and she supports old bikes, that sounds pretty good to me.

Votes can be submitted each day through March 23rd, so vote early and vote often.
