2011 AMA Pro Racing to Infineon Raceway

AMA Road Racing

AMA Pro Racing will return to the scenic Sonoma Valley once again as part of the 2011 AMA Pro Road Racing season for the West Coast Moto Jam at Infineon Raceway, May 13-15, officials from both companies announced today.

Dating back to 1977 when Paul Ritter took the SuperBike win at Infineon Raceway, the full package of AMA Pro Road Racing will once again return to this scenic and popular Nothern California racetrack.

The AMA Pro series, featuring Superbike, Daytona Sportbike, Supersport and XR1200 Series, has a long standing tradition of racing at Infineon Raceway and with the many fan friendly activities on offer during the West Coast Moto Jam, fans will once again enjoy a full slate of exciting activities on and off the track.

David Atlas (AMA Pro Chief Operating Officer) says: “We couldn’t be happier about returning to Infineon Raceway, this track is a first class facility for our competitors, fans and also our officials who enjoy the exceptional support of the wonderful people at Infineon Raceway.”

Headlined by the AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike series, also returning will be a full complement of AMA Pro Road Racing competition including the Daytona SportBike series, the SuperSport Young Gun and Top Gun series along with the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series for the big twin specially modified Harley-Davidson XR1200s.

Last year’s event saw Josh Hayes take a pair of wins as well as the historic first by Elena Myers as she took the first AMA Pro Road Racing win for a female in the 76 year history of the sport during Saturday’s SuperSport race.

Steve Page (President and general manager of Infineon Raceway) says: “We have a great history of AMA Pro Racing in the Sonoma Valley and we are delighted to bring the best motorcycle road racers in the country to our facility, once again, in 2011. This is always one of our favorite weekends of the year.”
