2013 AMA Pro Flat Track

Officials from AMA Pro Racing announced today the addition of Colonial Downs to the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles schedule.

The circuit, which measures in at just over a mile, will feature the stars of the rolling thunder show on Aug. 24, 2013 as Round 12 and brings the total number of mile races on the schedule to six.

The race will mark the first time in the storied history of the Grand National Championship that the series will visit Colonial Downs, located in New Kent, Virginia.

Dan Johnsen (Director of AMA Pro Flat Track) says: “We’re thrilled to bring our series to the legendary Colonial Downs race track. We are very proud to add a venue of this caliber to our schedule. Our riders will now have one more opportunity to battle for position in the point standings and also allows us to showcase our magnificent sport to a new market hungry for flat track racing.”

The AMA Pro Grand National Experts will roll out their twin-engine machines on the last Saturday of August as Colonial Downs is one of the largest dirt tracks in the United States, coming in at 1.25 miles.

The rising stars in the J&P Cycles Pro Singles will have their skills put to the ultimate test in late August aboard their 450cc machines, in a race which will surely come down to the wire.
