AMA Flat Track Grand Championship Returns July 7-13

The AMA Flat Track Grand Championship is already the most prestigious amateur flat track event in the country, but 2022 promises to be the best rendition of the event since its inception in the mid-1970s.

The American Motorcyclist Association returns to operate and promote the event, bringing modified class structures along with new race and entertainment schedules to improve the multi-day program for riders and fans alike. The 2022 AMA Flat Track Grand Championship will take place July 7-13 at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds in Du Quoin, Ill.

“This year’s AMA Flat Track Grand Championship will be bigger and better than ever,” said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. “With four challenging racetracks, combined with the fastest amateur and youth flat track racers in the United States, it will be an epic week.”

Training Champions: The Next Step

Think about this: nearly every organized sport has a recognized coaching-certification organization to go along with it. These organizations provide standards coaches must meet to train student, collegiate and professional athletes and certifications to keep training consistent.

But motorcycling hasn’t had that…until now.

Nationally recognized certification for coaches seems like a given, but unfortunately for motorcycle athletes across different disciplines and at various skill levels, it has long been treated as an afterthought. The United States Motorcycle Coaching Association (USMCA) stepped in to change that back in 2016.

New Indian Pursuit Gets Wildly Capable PowerPlus Engine

When Indian Motorcycle launched the Challenger in 2020, it heralded the beginning of an arms race that is still being duked out on MotoAmerica’s King of the Baggers series. With Indian’s first honest attempt at a performance bagger, the company was primed to take on one of Harley-Davidson’s most popular bike categories.

Now, Indian has grafted the Challenger’s PowerPlus engine into an aesthetically similar touring model, the Indian Pursuit.
