Jackyl to Headline Motorcycle Week at NHMS
New Hampshire Motor Speedway is an anchor point for motorcycle enthusiasts during the 93rd annual Laconia Motorcycle Week with on-track racing, off-track stunt shows, demo rides and rockin' entertainment June 11-19. Just added to the lineup, speedway officials announced today that Jackyl, the "hardest working band in rock 'n' roll", will headline the frontstretch stage on Saturday, June 18 at 6:30 p.m.
Jackyl, which blends heavy metal and southern rock, will provide a 75-minute concert following the 93rd running of the Loudon Classic, the longest running motorcycle race in the United States.
"We're looking forward to rocking out New Hampshire Motor Speedway - or as we like to call it, Jackylstock - this June," said Jesse James Dupree, lead vocalist of Jackyl. "Bike Week is a time-honored event to the region and we know how passionate riders are in that area, which draws folks from across the country. It's an honor to be playing at one of the nation's longest running motorcycle rallies. It's going to be a great time."
Jackyl is a multi-platinum selling band that has long established itself as "America's Rock Band." The legacy of Jackyl's wild, untamed and uncouth approach to rock 'n' roll is well established, with such hits as "Down on Me," "When Will it Rain," "I Stand Alone," and "The Lumberjack," during which lead singer Jesse James Dupree performs a chainsaw solo.
Motorcycle Week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway will run from June 11-19. Home to Bike Week's largest demo display, Arrive & Drive Demo Days will run June 13-18, and will include manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson, Victory, Ducati, Indian, Yamaha, Slingshot, and Can-Am.
Merchandise vendors, which will be on property June 10-18, include J&P Cycles, CIRO S&S Cycles, Vance & Hines, Ultimate Seats, California SideCar and many more.
The USCRA FIM Vintage Road Racing North American Championships event will begin the on-track action with races on June 11 and 12. Mike Baldwin, a four-time winner of the AMA Laconia National, will serve as the Grand Marshal. Baldwin is a five-time AMA Formula One champion, the all-time series win leader with 27 AMA National wins and is a member of the AMA Hall of Fame.
The Loudon Classic motorcycle races will hit the 1.6-mile road course on June 17, 18 and 19. On top of the annual headlining Loudon Classic Middleweight Grand Prix race, there will be the popular AMA Super Moto, team challenge races and close to three dozen races over the three days of on-track action.
