PICKERINGTON, Ohio (July 24, 2004) -- As announced on July 21, round two of the AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship will take place on Aug. 30, 2003 at South Boston Speedway in South Boston, Va. It was announced earlier in the year that the series would visit Copper Mountain Ski Resort outside of Denver, Colo., but that event will not take place.

AMA Pro Racing Associate Director of Commercial Development Chris Bradley cited a number of environmental and logistical concerns as the primary reasons the series will not visit Copper Mountain. “It proved to be impossible to construct a track that would meet AMA Pro Racing criteria,” said Bradley. “When we announced the AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship in March we believed that the Copper Mountain site could be suitable, but unfortunately, that’s just not the case.”

The opening round of the inaugural AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship took place at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on July, 11-13. The six race series will conclude in Las Vegas on Nov. 21 as part of the AMA Awards Banquet. Details for the remaining three rounds are being finalized and will be announced shortly.
