Tickets went on sale mid-week last week for the return of the DuQuoin 'Magic Mile' at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds for round 7 of the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season on July 4. Family Events, the Indianapolis-based promoters of DuQuoin and the legendary Indy Mile, is making the return of the Magic Mile possible after a ten-year hiatus from the series' schedule.
This is a great opportunity for more Midwest fans and fanatics to see The Rolling Thunder Show perform at one of the premier facilities in the area, as DuQuoin is one of the finest and fastest tracks in the nation, and there are virtually NO bad seats anywhere in the grandstands. The last time the track hosted the greatest racing show on two wheels in the world was at the end of the 2004 season when former AMA Grand National #23 Kevin 'Cupcake' Atherton ran away from the field in a romp that saw him win by half a track, and the most recent running of the mile in Southern Illinois was at the end of the 2005 season when former 7-Time AMA Grand National Champion Chris 'The Prince of Peoria' Carr showed the field the way to the checkered flag and also that his skills were not just in top form at the track just outside of Peoria, Illinois from where he garnered his famous nickname.
Looking at the prices of tickets not only for pre-sale but at the gate, this is one of, is not THE best deals in spectator viewing for the dollar. At $20/each for general admission (remember, there is NO BAD SEAT TO BE HAD) you can't afford NOT to make the trip to the DuQuoin event!
In the shot above, final qualifying at the legendary Indy Mile sees Jared Mees on #9 Rogers Racing/Las Vegas H-D/Blue Springs H-D-sponsored H-D XR750 taking the highline with Kenny Coolbeth, Jr. on the #2 Zanotti Racing/Moroney's H-D/Burt Ives Honda-backed XR750 holding his own while hugging the lowline next to the guard rail. Bringing up the rear of these former and current champions is Henry Wiles on the #17 Don's Kawasaki/DPC Racing/EA Racing-sponsored Kawasaki EX650.
Whatever you do, get on board and get your tickets now for the DuQuoin Mile on July 4, as this promises to be another superb showing of action and bar banging in The Rolling Thunder Show, and with Family Events putting on the show, you can't go wrong. These people know how to promote a great flat track race, as they have shown the last several years with their promotion of the Indy Mile, but the ticket prices alone should bring the fans out in droves to see the action in person!
Check out their release below and get your credit cards out to get your tickets lined up for the DuQuoin 'Magic Mile' over the Fourth of July weekend!
