(Jan 2018) – When races can be won or lost by hundredths of a second, you need the world’s finest Speedway wheels. Lighter and stronger than conventional materials, carbon fiber improves handling by reducing rotating mass.
Weight is reduced without compromising strength by combining woven and unidirectional carbon material to form a monocoque (single unit) design with hollow spokes. This technique produces a wheel strong enough to exceed stringent (US) DOT (Department of Transportation) and (Japan) JWL (Japan light alloy wheel standard) safety standards. The JWL is the most stringent wheel standard in the world.

(Sept 2017) – Billy Janniro, of Winters, Calif., captured his eighth AMA National Championship during the final round of the AMA Speedway National Championship Series at Fast Fridays Motorcycle Speedway in Auburn, Calif., on Sept. 16.
“Billy is a talented racer and fierce competitor who has cemented his place in AMA speedway racing by tying Greg Hancock’s record of eight AMA National titles,” said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. “The AMA is pleased to award him his eighth AMA National Championship, and we look forward to him returning to defend his championship again next year.”
Du Quoin, IL (July 2017) – Only 14 years old, the Escalon teen who lived most of his young life in Manteca raced as an amateur for the final time during the week of Fourth of July. Brooks captured the 251-500cc DTX championship in the Amateur Motorcyclist Association Dirt Track Grand Nationals in Du Quoin, Ill.
It’s the third straight year that he’s returned home with a national No. 1 plate, but along with it came an even bigger prize — the Nicky Hayden AMA Dirt Track Horizon Award, which recognizes a pro-ready rider who exhibits a good attitude and enthusiasm as well as merit.
Du Quoin, IL (July 2016) –Congratulations Hunter Brooks, winning the 2016 AMA amateur dirt track national at Du Quoin, IL. Hunter raced the 201cc to 250cc class on his Yamaha with GPS Racing Carbon Fiber Flat Track Wheels.
Las Vegas (Nov. 20, 2015) –For the first time in history, Carbon Fiber Wheels were used in AMA Pro Racing. And for the first time in history, a Carbon Fiber Wheeled bike podiumed in an AMA Pro Racing event.
At 46, Joe Kopp came out of retirement to race the final round of the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track series in Las Vegas.
When Joe heard about the SuperPrestigio in Vegas, he thought it would be fun to race in it. But there was a problem: to get an entry for the SuperPrestigio on Saturday, he would have to win the GNC 1 race on Friday. For most people, that might be the end of it, but if you’re Joe Kopp, you build a world class motorcycle and head to Vegas .
Joe showed up with the best looking bike at the race. His immaculately prepared Husqvarna featured GPS Racing/BST Carbon Fiber Wheels.
Kopp knew it was a long shot, but he rode spectacularly and came as close as you can get, finishing second!
Joe’s second place finish is the first time a Husky has finished on the podium at any AMA Pro Flat Track race.
It’s also the first time a bike with Carbon Fiber Wheels has finished on the podium at any AMA Pro Flat Track race. Not bad for our very first AMA Pro Flat Track race!
Congratulations Joe! You Rock!
Oakdale, California (Sept. 16, 2015) –For the first time, carbon fiber wheels will be allowed in AMA Pro Flat Track competition. After the 2015 Delmar round, riders can use the carbon fiber wheels from GPS Racing.
We partnered with BST of South Africa to make the wheels. BST manufactures the carbon fiber portion and bonds it to a billet GPSR hub.
Before AMA Pro Flat Track decided to allow our wheels in competition, they reviewed stress test data for impact, torsional, radial, and cornering loads. The data shows that the wheels exceed TUV, DOT, and JWL safety standards.
We are proud to introduce carbon fiber wheel technology to flat track. When races can be won or lost by hundredths of a second, racers need the best equipment and technology that’s available.
Made for framer and DTX models, the wheels are in stock and available.
Sacramento, California (May 30 2015) — Congratulations Nick! In front of a home crowd, GPS Racing’s Nick Armstrong won a hard fought battle with Tristan Avery to win the 2015 Sacramento Mile GNC2. It was a thrilling race. On the final lap the two riders were neck-and-neck, but Nick put his wheel across the line first to win his first AMA Pro Flat Track race. After four rounds, Nick moves to first in the GNC2 point standings!
