PICKERINGTON, OHIO -- AMA Sports, the amateur and pro-am competition division of the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), has announced that Ken Saillant will join its staff as Track Racing Manager on March 21, 2005.

In his role with AMA Sports, Saillant will oversee operations of flat-track, Supermoto, roadracing, ice racing and speedway disciplines. He'll report to AMA Sports Senior Director Douglas Neubauer.

"Ken has a wealth of knowledge and experience to contribute to AMA Sports, along with his passion as a true racing enthusiast," said Neubauer. "Adding Ken to our team is the next step in shaping our programs to better serve the racers who are the life-blood of motorcycle competition."

A racer himself in the 1980s, Saillant became a race promoter under the name Fast Track Racing. He promoted the 1997 AMA Amateur Nationals and co-promoted (with the AMA) the 1998 and 1999 events. In 2000, he became Race Director for the AMA Sports Dirt Track Grand Championships. Since then he's worked with regional and national ice racing, dirt-track, and speedway competition, and as an assistant director of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. Saillant also has represented AMA Sports on the AMA Congress track committee.
