AMA Pro Racing will return to Miller Motorsports park next year during the 2011 AMA season. AMA Pro Racing raced at Miller Motorsports from 2006 through 2008, but hasn’t been at the famed track for the past two years. The Miller Motorsports Park weekend will happen over Memorial day weekend next year.
“We are delighted to be returning to Miller Motorsports Park,” said AMA Pro Chief Operating Officer and Managing Member, David Atlas. “Our riders have indicated that racing at Miller Motorsports Park was very important and we were delighted that we could come to an agreement with the Miller family and the track to combine the best of AMA Pro road racing with the Superbike World Championship to create a real celebration of motorcycle racing.”
Miller Motorsports Park has been a favorite of AMA riders, and Jake Zemke, Josh Hayes, and Geoff May all have race wins at Miller Park.
“With the return of AMA Pro Racing, we will host the most competitive motorcycle race weekend in North America in 2011,” said Bryan Miller, the assistant general manager of Miller Motorsports Park. “The best in the world with SBK, the best in the U.S. with AMA Pro Racing and the best semi-pro race with the Lucas Oil Superbike Challenge. This competition is the cornerstone of the new Memorial Day tradition we are working to build for America’s motorcycling community.”
