Racers at AMA Dirt Track Grand Championship to compete for AMA Fast Brain Award
PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- June 2, 2015 -- Racers at the AMA Dirt Track Grand Championship in Du Quoin, Ill., July 6-10, not only will race for AMA National No. 1 plates, but some of the fastest -- and brightest -- also will compete for the AMA Fast Brain Award, which includes an educational scholarship for the award winner.
"AMA champions represent the best of the best on the racetrack," said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. "But while we value the speed and athletic ability necessary to win titles, we also recognize the dedication it takes to stand out in academics."
Funded by AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Bill Werner, Zanotti Racing's Dave Zanotti and AMA Life Member Stan Simpson, the 2015 AMA Fast Brain Award and its $1,500 educational scholarship benefit a young racer whose talent with a throttle is matched by his or her aptitude in the classroom.

Reigning AMA Grand National Champion Jared Mees will serve as this year's honoree at the AMA Dirt Track Grand Championship, where racers will compete in individual dirt track disciplines, including half-mile, TT and short-track races. Non-youth classes also will run on Du Quoin's world-famous Magic Mile.
