SKIP VAN LEEUWEN TO BE GRAND MARSHAL FOR THE LAW TIGERS AMA PRO FLAT TRACK FINALS

The Activation Group (TAG) is pleased to announce that Skip Van Leeuwen will be Grand Marshal for the upcoming Law Tigers AMA Pro Flat Track Finals, brought to you locally by Pomona Valley Harley-Davidson and Glendale Harley-Davidson, October 11th at the Fairplex.
 
One of the best Tourist Trophy Steeplechase riders in AMA history, Van Leeuwen dominated AMA TT history in the 1960's.  Known as the Master of Ascot, his local track, Van Leeuwen won numerous races at Ascot as well as others across the country.
 
Born in Orange City, Iowa, Van Leeuwen and his family moved to Los Angeles when he was just two years-old. It wasn't until after high school that he actually became interested in racing.
 
"My best friend Dick Hammer and I bought Triumph 650's", he explains. "In the beginning I was happy just watching. Then we went and watched the Catalina GP and one of our friends did really well.  I decided to race to get enough points to race Catalina.  Unfortunately, they cancelled the race and I never got to compete there."
 
"I started racing and my family wasn't pleased because it meant that I missed church. I told them racing was just a temporary thing and that I was just doing it for fun", recalls Van Leeuwen. "I promised my mom that when I made expert, I would quit racing. Then I went out in my first expert race and there were all the guys I grew up watching who were my heroes. I just happened to get a great start and won the race and of course after that I was hooked."     
 
By the early 1970s, Van Leeuwen was concentrating more on his business interests and he retired from racing in 1972, even though he was still very competitive on the track. 

"When Kenny Roberts and Gary Scott came along, I knew that my racing days were about over," remembers Van Leeuwen. "They were so fast and I figured my days were coming to an end."
 
"We are really pleased to have Van Leeuwen as our Grand Marshal this year," say producers Chris Morgan and Charlie Frank.  "He brings a lot of history and prestige to this year's Law Tigers AMA Pro Flat Track Finals and it is our pleasure to honor him."
 
"I am definitely honored to have been chosen as the Grand Marshal for this race.  I love the AMA Pro Flat Track Finals. It is always one of the best races in the series and I can't wait for the Green Flag to fall. It is going to be an incredible show. "
