2011 AMA Flat Track: Du Quoin Rescheduled

Flat Track News

After working closely with both the promoter as well as the paddock, AMA Pro Racing is pleased to announce that the Du Quoin, Ill. Flat Track 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.
