AMA Sports Magic Mile Shootout adds more magic
More classes, more chances for riders to win; entries still open for $10,000, winner-take-all main event

PICKERINGTON, Ohio--AMA Sports, the amateur and pro-am racing department of the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), announced today more ways for riders to win at the AMA Sports Magic Mile Shootout, promoted and organized by the Du Quoin State Fair.

In addition to the already announced $10,000 winner-take-all, 15-lap dirt-track 450cc main event on Saturday, August 23, 2008-held in conjunction with opening night of the Du Quoin State Fair in southwest Illinois-there will be a Vintage Pre-1982 Twins race, paying $2,500 to win. The Vintage Pre-1982 Twins race is open to non-GNC and non-Expert licensed riders with eligible equipment.

"The Vintage Pre-1982 Twins class provides the perfect complement to the modern 450cc single-cylinder bikes that will be fielded in the $10,000 main event. Both fans and competitors will get a kick out of seeing these classic machines gun for a $2,500 payday," said AMA Flat Track Director Ken Saillant. "Plus, vintage racing is getting bigger all the time, and this event provides an opportunity for those racers showcasing the equipment from decades past to win big."

The AMA Sports Magic Mile Shootout will take place on the world-famous Du Quoin Magic Mile dirt oval. Currently licensed Pro Sport competitors and eligible amateur racers can compete in the 450cc Modified class that will pay $10,000 to the winner.

In addition to the $10,000 main event and $2,500 vintage program, the night will feature a 450cc Last Man Out Race, sponsored by Gatewood Engineering and Race Support ({{{ Gatewood Engineering And Race Support }}}). The five-lap event will pay $500 to the winner and feature five riders selected from among the 450cc class heat winners. In a last-man-out race, the last rider on each lap pulls off and the remaining riders line up for a subsequent lap. The process continues until there's one rider remaining.

Entries are still open for both classes. Riders are encouraged to visit the AMA Sports section of and sign up now.
