AMA/ATVA ATV Motocross National Championship Series

ATV Pro Motocross National set for Pell City March 19

Pell City, Alabama (March 17, 2011) -- The fastest four-wheeled All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) racers in America will make their return to the nationally recognized Mill Creek Raceway for Round 2 of the 2011 AMA ATV Motocross Championship Presented by DWT.

The Mill Creek race will feature the top professional ATV riders in the country competing on a closed course featuring jumps, bumps and corners. Riders will compete on custom-built 450cc machines from top manufacturers such as Can-Am, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Polaris, Suzuki and Yamaha. Riders stand to rake in six-figure incomes from the large purse and contingency bonuses, all while competing for the most coveted honor in ATV racing: The AMA Pro Motocross Championship.

Pro riders will practice and race on Saturday. Fans are invited to come early each day to tour the open pro pits and attend free autograph sessions, while also checking out the best amateur riders in the nation, who will be racing all weekend.

The event takes place at Mill Creek raceway, located just a short distance from Birmingham. The track is surrounded by hardwoods, pine, creeks and rolling hills. Over the years, Mill Creek has matured and become a nationally recognized facility, with wide lanes, flowing natural jumps and enormous elevation changes. The track features a mix of fast and slow technical sections into its nearly two-mile layout.

The pro class will race in two 20-minute races on Saturday, with the best combined scores of both races determining the overall winner. The fastest ATV PRO riders in the world will all be here for this annual event.

Can-Am factory Chad Wienen dominated the opening round in Georgia and will be looking to get back at the top of the podium. Veteran rider and past champion, Joe Byrd comes into the event looking for a spot on the podium after his 5th place finish at the season opener.

The weekend also includes a full slate of amateur racing, including classes for riders as young as six-years-old, and veteran divisions for riders over the age of 50. Practice, qualifying and racing will take place on Saturday and Sunday.

Weekend tickets cost $30 for adults and $20 for children age 6-11. There is a Saturday One Day Ticket available for spectators and $5.00 discount coupons are available at all Can-Am dealers.
