Glorious memories of the Indy Mile go back for decades. Top riders have always highly coveted a win at this race, long considered the "Crown Jewel" of AMA Pro Racing's oldest and most tradition-rich professional racing series. After a hiatus that began in 1999, the race returned to the Indiana State Fairgrounds in 2008 to record-breaking crowds. In 2009, a near-capacity crowd again returned to witness another night of sliding, drafting, handlebar-to-handlebar duels, 140 mph straightaway speeds, and inches-close finishes. As a special treat in 2009, motorcycle racing legend "King" Kenny Roberts electrified the crowd with a no-holds barred, high-revving 3-lap curtain call on the infamous Yamaha TZ-750 he rode to victory in 1975. It was another "Indy Mile Moment" to be savored by fans for years to come. Valentino Rossi and other top Moto GP riders cheered on Roberts while marveling at the guts and skill of today's flat track stars.
Harley-Davidson factory rider and three-time AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Champion Kenny Coolbeth of Morris, Connecticut won the 2009 Lucas Oil Indy Mile main event in the Expert Twins class. J. D. Beach on a Honda won the AMA Pro Singles main event in 2009.
