BikerFest Mke Unveils Empowering Flat Track Racing Program for Milwaukee Youth, Supported by Industry Visionaries and Community Partners

Milwaukee, WI – September 6, 2023 – BikerFest Mke, a pioneering force in motorcycle culture and industry, is thrilled to announce the launch of “Sliders”, a transformative Flat Track Racing Program for underrepresented youth in Milwaukee. This groundbreaking initiative is made possible through strategic partnerships with industry luminaries, including Jeremy Prach from Flatout Friday, Scott Johnson from Mama Tried Motorcycle Show, Tiger Mabato from Cream City Moto, and the generous support of the ThriveOn Collaboration Grant through the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.

Empowering Milwaukee’s Youth through the Heartbeat of Racing

BikerFest Mke, known for its unwavering commitment to motorcycle safety and community building, is taking a monumental leap by empowering Milwaukee’s underrepresented youth through the exhilarating world of Flat Track Racing. This program aims to not only nurture a passion for motorcycle racing but also provide a platform for personal growth, mentorship, and lifelong lessons in discipline, teamwork, and community engagement. We believe that every child, regardless of their background, deserves equal opportunities and access to experiences that inspire and uplift. By introducing them to the exhilarating world of racing, we ignite their passion, nurture their talents, and expose them to a supportive community that encourages their growth. This program goes beyond racing; it becomes a catalyst for personal and academic achievement, career development, and social mobility. We envision a future where these underprivileged youth become the leaders and trailblazers of their communities, breaking stereotypes, shattering limitations, and realizing their dreams.

The Sliders Flat Track Racing promises to be a beacon of hope and empowerment for Milwaukee’s young individuals. This project is dedicated to serving a population that has been historically marginalized and disproportionately impacted by systemic inequities: black, underprivileged youth in Milwaukee. These young individuals possess incredible potential, resilience, and talent, yet are often denied the opportunities and resources necessary to thrive. Our goal is to break the cycle of limited access and create a pathway for their empowerment.
