DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 28, 2013) – Next stop, Stockton, California. The stars of AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles intend to pack up their machines and head out west for the first time this season and go handle bar to handle bar at the San Joaquin Fairgrounds. Unfortunately, the TBA that was originally planned to hold the race on May 4, 2013 has been cancelled. Nevertheless, fans can write this upcoming Stockton event in permanent ink on their calendars, as the race is a one-hundred-percent go and is expected bring nonstop action-packed racing from the very first heat all the way to the drop of the checkered flag in the final main event.
"I'm thrilled to bring our series out to California for the first time this season," said Michael Gentry, COO of AMA Pro Racing. "It seems like every time our riders compete in the Golden State it's always a world class experience. The fans embrace the sport and the atmosphere is just unbelievable. The field is very competitive this year as we all witnessed in Daytona and I can't wait to get everything started back up again in Stockton."
The AMA Pro Grand National Championship Expert riders will be mounted on their thundering twin-engines for the first time this season on San Joaquin Fairgrounds' half-mile course. Mikey Rush and Brandon Robinson were able to come out on top and claim their dominance on Daytona's short track in the 2013 season's opening rounds. Let's see if these two have what it takes to compete on a faster half-mile course against the other resilient contenders in the sport.
As for the AMA Pro J&P Cycles Pro Singles, they will be piloting their single-engine machines for the third time this season. Michigan's Kyle Johnson and New Yorker Jake Constantine both took checkered flags at Daytona and will look to have similar success next month when the lights go on in Stockton.
