Share:
PICKERINGTON, Ohio ? Round nine of the 2004 AMA Progressive Insurance Flat Track Championship will be held at Route 66 Raceway in conjunction with the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series and Busch Series events at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill., on Friday, July 9th. ?Holding an AMA Grand National on the same site and same weekend as a NASCAR event brings a great opportunity to present our series to new fans,? said Bruce Bober, AMA Flat Track Series Manager. NASCAR time trials will conclude at 5:00 p.m. on Friday evening, at the same time the AMA Grand National bikes will fire up for practice. AMA qualifying is slated to go off at 6:30 at the Route 66 Raceway Dirt Oval. Bober feels that fans of stock car racing will feel an affinity for AMA Flat Track. ?The two forms of racing have a lot in common in that they are uniquely American, run on ovals and share a history dating back decades,? said Bober. ?Also, each series is just a great show delivering some of the most competitive racing in all of motorsports.? The AMA Grand National Championship is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this season. Chris Carr is the defending series champion and is shooting for his sixth AMA Grand National title this year. Route 66 Speedway?s Half-Mile is part of the Chicagoland Speedway complex. This year will mark the return of AMA Grand National racing to Route 66 Raceway after a four-year absence. Previous winners at Route 66 include Rich King and the late Will Davis.
