AMA Pro Racing and Miller Motorsports Park Announce 2011 Event

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (August 13, 2010)- AMA Pro Racing and Miller Motorsports Park are pleased to announce that AMA Pro Road Racing will return to Miller Motorsports Park in conjunction with the Utah USA round of the FIM Superbike World Championship presented by HANNspree for a celebration of motorcycle racing over the Memorial Day weekend in 2011.

Miller Motorsports Park was the result of the vision, drive and determination of its founder, the late Larry H. Miller, a successful automobile and media businessman and Utah Jazz NBA team owner. The facility is built to the highest standards and provides a first-class facility for riders, teams and fans alike.

"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."

AMA Pro Racing previously competed at Miller Motorsports Park from 2006 through 2008. A number of current AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike competitors have won AMA Pro races at Miller including Jake Zemke, Josh Hayes and Geoff May.

Bryan Miller, assistant general manager of Miller Motorsports Park said, "With the return of AMA Pro Racing, we will host the most competitive motorcycle race weekend in North America in 2011; 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."

The event will take place over the Memorial Day weekend, beginning on Saturday, May 28th and concluding on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th, 2011.
