PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Round 10 of the AMA Chevy Trucks U.S. Superbike Championship has been cancelled by the event promoters of Willow Springs International Raceway.

Originally scheduled for Sept. 14-16, the race was postponed following the tragic attack on the United States in New York and Washington, D.C. on Sept. 11. The difficulty of air travel as well as the questionable appropriateness of holding the event were the factors in the postponement, and substantial efforts were made to schedule an alternate date.

However, despite best efforts by AMA Pro Racing, racing teams and key television partners, the promoters of Willow Springs International Raceway opted instead to cancel this weekend's event entirely. Promoters of Willow Springs Raceway cited insurmountable scheduling conflicts as the driving force behind their decision.

Fans who have purchased tickets in advance for the Willow Springs round should contact Willow Springs International Raceway at (661) 256-2471 for more information.

The AMA Chevy Trucks U.S. Superbike Championship concludes at the end of this month, Sept. 28-30 at the new Virginia International Raceway in Alton, Va., with a unique 150-kilometer Superbike race featuring the drama of pit stops.
