Oklahoma City Mile
AMA Pro Racing and even promoter, BrassMonkey Promotions LLC, have come to gather in an effort to put Oklahoma City back on the professional dirt track racing map. The Oklahoma City Mile, an established OKC favorite, has been added to the 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule. The race will take place on Saturday, June 18, at the freshly renovated Remington Park Racing & Casino facility.
“There’s a lot of excitement because there hasn’t been anything like this here in over 15 years,” said Shawn Brassfield, promoter of the Oklahoma City Mile. “Since the speedway at the fairgrounds was torn down, fans have been missing the sport and are excited about the return of racing.”
It has been some time since AMA Pro Flat Track last visited OKC, during its last appearance, 7-time Grand National Champion Chris Carr claimed the Half-Mile victory in 1999. The 2016 event will mark the first Mile event held in the Sooner State and with something as notable as this, the racing action is only one small part of the story. The off-track entertainment is poised to keep everyone pleased with a plethora of family-friendly activities on Father’s Day weekend.
“Our aim is to create an event that’s not just for the hardcore race fan, but a great family-friendly outing for Father’s Day as well,” said Brassfield.
BrassMonkey have created a grand vision for racing fans, one that can be described as the ultimate experience. The promoter aims to give the 50-million-dollar venue an atmosphere resembling a carnival, transforming the infield into a “fun zone,” with face painting for children and exciting features for the adult crowd.
