AMA Flat Track Re-Schedules DuQuoin Short Track for April 16


The beautiful Southern Illinois Center on the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds will host the first AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship event in seven years on April 16. The round was originally scheduled for the previous weekend, and AMA Flat Track and Steve Nace Racing were able to work it out to postpone it for one more week in order to keep the event on the schedule. This is a beautiful little facility that hosted a couple of AMA Flat Track events in '04 and '05 along with the then-season ending rounds on the infamous Magic Mile at DuQuoin.
Steve Nace and his group have been running numerous events here and it has had a great turn out in terms of riders over the off season, including 7-Time GNC Chris Carr, J.D. Beach, James Rispoli and Sammy Halbert. Mark your calendars now to attend what will surely be a great event at a super nice facility in Southern Illinois.

AMA Pro Racing News Release

Du Quoin AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship Event Date Moved

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 19, 2011/1730 EST) - After working closely with both the promoter as well as the paddock, AMA Pro Racing is pleased to announce that the Du Quoin, Ill. event originally scheduled for April 9, 2011, will be moved to April 16, 2011.

After considering the potential conflicts with previous dates, it looked as though the event might be forced off of the 2011 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule. Finally, after careful deliberation, it was concluded that the paddock's desire to keep the Du Quoin event on the schedule overshadowed the original concern regarding the distance to be traveled between Du Quoin, Ill. and Salinas, Calif. in less than one week.

After seven years, AMA Pro Racing is excited to be returning to the Du Quoin State Fair Grounds.
