This past weekend, Neoga, IL was the site of the 2016 AMA Hillclimb Grand Championship, hosted by Pleasure Riders M/C at the brand-new Thunder Ridge Motorsports Facility.
Indianhead M/C members on the whole did pretty well, but no one was even close to Nathan Prebe this weekend. Nathan won 3 of the 4 regular classes he entered…and got 2nd in the 4th class, beaten only by his brother Jacob. He also set the fast time for the event, won the prestigious King of the Hill shootout, and was named AMA Hillclimber of the Year!
Not bad for about 2 minutes’ worth of ride time. Hats off to Nathan, and congratulations for your tremendous achievements!
Indianhead M/C is featured in a 2-page spread in the latest issue a new magazine here in town, It’s Red Wing.
Go and check it out!
In about 3 weeks, the first 2 events of the 2016 season will happen right here at Indianhead M/C in Red Wing, MN – we’re having a double-header on May 14th & 15th!

Classes for the Semi-Pro event:
- Open (801cc & up)
ATVs will be allowed to compete based on displacement in the same classes.
Note that in accordance with the 2015 AMA rulebook, riders must be at least 14 years old to compete in semi-pro events, and at least 16 years old to compete in hill drags events.
Classes for the hill drags are as shown on the entry form. Remember that the hill drags are pre-entry only, and entries must be received by Sept. 12th.
Rider registration for the semi-pro event will on on raceday, from 9:00 to 11:00AM. Entry fees are $30 per class, and riders can enter as many classes as they like. All classes will be cash payback based on the number of entries in each class. Depending on how many entries we get, we may choose to allow 2 riders per bike in a given class, and/or offer an X-Climb at intermission – that decision will be made on raceday.
Our last 2 events of the year are fast-approaching! On Sept. 19th we’ll be hosting our fan-favorite Hill Drags event, with all-cash payback and a guaranteed $1,000 prize for Top Eliminator!

And then on the following day, Sept. 20th, we’ll be hosting a Semi-Pro event too! Also cash-payback, but registration will be on race day. This event will likewise be run in accordance with the 2015 AMA “AA Hillclimb” rules – starting on page 123 of the current AMA rulebook. Rubber paddle tires and alcohol fuel allowed!
We’re pleased to announce that Indianhead M/C will be offering a 0-600cc 2-Stroke class at it’s regular amateur events in 2015! Technically it’s an exhibition class, so no district points…but it’s an amateur class, so same rules as everybody else. Get another ride on your 2-stroke, just like the 4-stroke guys do! And yes – you can qualify into the King of the Hill from this class too!
Indianhead Motorcycle Club has been a part of the Red Wing community since the late 1940s, having held motorcycle hillclimb events at the same location since 1949. As a non-profit organization that promotes a family sport, we strive to actively improve the community we share with our friends and neighbors.
To that end, IMC supports local charitable organizations – like the local youth baseball program and the Red Wing Area Food Shelf, among others. Recently we were surprised to learn that we’d been nominated for a Congressional recognition award that, frankly, we didn’t even know existed.
On Feb. 17th, IMC President Dan Prebe, Secretary Sheryl Marking, and Webmaster Kaleb Northrup were honored to accept the “Star of the North” award from Congressman John Kline who is the representative for Minnesota’s 2nd district.

Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition
We’re honored and humbled by the nomination and the award, and are proud to be a part of our community – and it gives us great pleasure to be able to provide support to worthy local charities as we have done in the past, and will continue to do in the future. Our thanks to Congressman Kline for his recognition!

Stay tuned to this space to see what we conjure up for next year. Thanks!
