2002 AMA banquet announced


PICKERINGTON, Ohio– The 2002 AMA Pro Racing Championship Awards Banquet will be held on Saturday evening, Nov. 23, at the Venetian Resort Hotel Las Vegas -- home of the Guggenheim Museum's fabulous "Art of the Motorcycle" exhibit. The banquet's highlight will surely be the presentation of the prestigious 2002 AMA/Speed Channel Athlete of the Year Award, but the banquet itself will also be greatly improved with the addition of a professional production company to script and run the event, and invitations are also being extended to the top 10 riders in each series.

"We are looking forward to bringing the AMA Pro Awards Banquet back to Las Vegas," said Scott Hollingsworth, AMA Pro Racing's CEO. "We have taken steps to greatly improve the banquet's presentation and significance, and look forward to many of the other exciting events under development that are sure to make the banquet weekend one to remember." In attempt to make the banquet weekend a must-attend affair, a number of other exciting events are being planned around the banquet. News on these events will be released soon.

The AMA Pro Racing Awards Banquet is open to the public and tickets are $100, which includes admission to the banquet, hors d' oeuvres and dinner.

For more information on the banquet, call AMA Pro Racing's Michele Rossi at (614) 856-1910, ext. 1342, or e-mail
