Joey Brown racing

There will live entertainment and a “bench” party (people telling stories) at and around the Island Bar. There will be adult beverages, music and good ol’ friends sharing memories.

This event holds a special place in many hearts around this area and beyond. We lost a local racer and businessman Joey Brown last year. His passion for motorcycles has been passed down to his family and friends.

Godspeed Joey Brown 19z. May you be watching down on this fun day and be smiling.
