From sweeping, flat track-oriented turns to technical dirt sections and high-speed pavement, this latest supermoto iteration will once again feature something for every rider.

AMA Pro Racing Associate Director of Commercial Development, Chris Bradley says this track will be entertaining for fans and challenging for racers. "Once again, we're maximizing the area in which the track will be located." says Bradley. "We begin the track building process with a specific layout in mind but as construction unfolds new opportunities often present themselves. That's the beauty of this type of racing; you're free to build the best possible type of track given the surroundings and setting."

The track will be located in downtown Columbus near the PromoWest Pavilion in the city's revitalized Arena District. PromoWest Pavilion is an indoor/outdoor music amphitheater. The area offers numerous entertainment opportunities including restaurants and night spots. In addition to taking in the races, attendees will have plenty of entertainment options nearby.

Bringing AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship events to urban venues is part of AMA Pro Racing's business plan for the championship. After the Columbus event, the series heads to Dallas two weeks later on Oct. 18.

Tickets for the both rounds can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, online at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 326-4000.

The AMA Red Bull Championship runs from July through November. The championship finale will take place on November 21, 2003 in Las Vegas in connection with the AMA Pro Racing Awards Banquet. For more information on the AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship, visit www.amaproracing.com.
