AMA Pro Racing and Team SMI announced today that Circuit of the Americas will kick off the AMA Pro Flat Track series in 2016. The world’s premier dirt track motorcycle racing series will make its visit to the purpose-built Grand Prix facility on April 9, 2016, coinciding with the Grand Prix of the Americas.

“I’m delighted that we are able to bring AMA Pro Flat Track racing to COTA, to complete the ultimate festive weekend of motorcycle sport,” beamed Michael Lock, CEO of AMA Pro Racing.

“Today’s MotoGP stars are fascinated with our unique brand of racing and the growing Superprestigio events in Las Vegas and Barcelona are testament to the wide appeal and recent interest in Pro Flat Track racing.”

Circuit of Americas is quite familiar with the world of dirt trick racing. The sport made its debut at the Summer X Games in 2015, featuring many of AMA Pro Flat Track’s best and brightest. After a hard fought battle, Bryan Smith clinched a thrilling victory that came down to the wire.

“We’re excited to be part of what will be the greatest ever two-wheel racing competition,” said Bobby Epstein, Chairman of the Circuit of the Americas. “With MotoGP, MotoAmerica and AMA Pro Flat Track running on the same weekend – at the same venue – it will be unbeatable entertainment.”

In the coming months, additional details will be released regarding the 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track round at Circuit of the Americas. For more information, keep your browsers open to Ultimate MotorCycling as we’ll always be here to report on your racing needs.
