PICKERINGTON, Ohio (Sept. 19, 2003) -- The 29th annual AMA Pro Racing Awards Banquet will be held at the Rio Suites Hotel & Casino on Saturday evening, Nov. 22. Honoring top riders in American motorcycle racing, the celebration has become one of the premiere events in the motorcycle industry and is a who's who of top riders and industry luminaries.

The top three riders from AMA Supercross, Motocross, Flat Track, Superbike and Supermoto as well as the champions of Hillclimb and Drag Racing will be recognized. Additionally, the AMA Pro Racing Speed Channel Athlete of the Year will be crowned. Multi-time AMA Motocross and AMA Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael was last year's recipient of the prestigious award.

According to Scott Hollingsworth, CEO of AMA Pro Racing, the evening promises to be filled with fun and surprises. "We've worked hard to improve the show presentation," said Hollingsworth. "Many felt last year's show was the best yet and this year our plan is to improve it even more. Hosts Dave Despain, David Sadowski and Cameron Steele will once again emcee the festivities and all the top riders will be there to receive their awards. It will be a fitting finish to a another terrific racing season."

A number of additional events are being held in conjunction with the banquet including the finale of the AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship, Friday night, Nov. 21.
