AMCA Appoints Executive Director


Keith KizerThe Antique Motorcycle Club of America (AMCA) announced today that Keith Kizer has been appointed as its Executive Director. Kizer, who formerly ran the AMA Prostar Drag Racing Series and served as the Senior Director for AMA Pro Racing, will oversee the AMCA’s various strategic projects, events, programs and daily operations. Kizer will work from his office in Huntsville, Alabama, and report to the AMCA’s Board of Directors. The appointment is effective immediately.


“Keith has a long history of developing and growing membership-based organizations, from his co-founding of the AMA Prostar Drag Racing Series to reviving the road-racing side of AMA Pro Racing from 2006 to 2008 prior to its sale,” said Richard Spagnolli, AMCA President. “His experience and management expertise are sure to help the AMCA continue the culture and tradition of serving the antique motorcycle community as it has for the last 60 years.


“The addition of Keith will give us the opportunity to grow the organization through overseeing a new strategic plan to be adopted by the Board,” Spagnolli added.


The Antique Motorcycle Club of America was founded in 1954 by four men who had a passion for preserving old bikes. In the decades since, the AMCA has grown to become one of the largest organizations of antique-motorcycle enthusiasts in the world, with more than 10,000 members in the United States and more than a dozen other countries.


“After four decades in the motorcycle-racing world, I embrace this new chapter in my motorcycling career and look forward to helping the AMCA fulfill its vision for the future,” said Kizer. “The world of antique motorcycling offers an amazing network of enthusiasts, fabricators and historians, all devoted to preserving the heritage of this sport. I look forward to working with them and to expanding this network to a new generation of riders and racers.”
