30th Annual AMA Pro Racing Awards Banquet to be Held at Paris Las Vegas

Star-studded evening celebrates top professional motorcycle racers

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (Sept. 22, 2004) -- AMA Pro Racing will honor the champions of American professional motorcycle racing at its 30th annual AMA Pro Racing Awards Banquet on Sunday evening, Nov., 14 at Paris Las Vegas. The annual event attracts not only America’s best professional racers but also leading executives from the motorcycle industry. The banquet is the conclusion of the nearly year-long AMA Pro Racing season comprised of nearly 80 professional racing events.

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 honored. Additionally, the AMA Pro Racing Speed Channel Athlete of the Year will be crowned. Last year’s recipient of the coveted award was multi-time AMA Flat Track Champion Chris Carr.

The show will be fun-filled for award winners and guests according to AMA Pro Racing CEO, Scott Hollingsworth. “Our banquet team is working hard to create another enjoyable evening, said Hollingsworth. “In addition to all the great things regular attendees have come to expect, we’ll be adding a couple of surprises. We’re going to make the evening more visually impressive and ramp up the pace of the banquet. It will be a great time for all.

The banquet is being held in conjunction with the AMA Supermoto Championship finale, the AMA Red Bull Supermoto A-Go-Go, which will be held on the same weekend.

“Anyone who attended last year’s Supermoto finale was not disappointed, said Hollingsworth. “It may have been the best racing we saw all year long and it ended up being a great party. This year’s Supermoto finale and awards banquet promise to be just as memorable.

Once again, the public is invited to the banquet. Tickets are $125, which includes banquet admission, hors d’oeuvres and dinner.
