Those looking to race in the national championship event that runs June 14-20 at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds in Du Quoin, Ill., can pre-register at

“The Mission Foods AMA Flat Track Grand Championship is the premier amateur flat track event in the country,” said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. “In anticipation of the action-packed seven-day event, we hope racers take advantage of the discounted rate offered with pre-registration.”

Along with the time saved at the track checking in, pre-registered riders will save money, with discounted fees for the AMA Flat Track Grand Championship at $80 per class — $20 off the price of regular entry.

Wristbands for gate entry can be purchased for $15 per day or $75 for the entire week. Pit bike passes are $20. Both can be purchased online in advance of the event.

Riders who pre-register before the May 31 deadline will also have their names printed on a special 2023 Mission Foods AMA Flat Track Grand Championship T-shirt.

The AMA promotes and operates the most prestigious amateur flat track event in the country. Hosting different ages and classes, the Mission Foods AMA Flat Track Grand Championship — an event that traces its roots to 1975 — offers the only chance to earn an AMA National No. 1 plate in amateur flat track racing.

The annual event includes four disciplines of flat track racing: Short Track, TT, Mile and Half-Mile.

In addition to AMA National No. 1 plates, the Nicky Hayden AMA Flat Track Horizon Award — given to the most promising amateur rider on the verge of transitioning to the professional ranks — will be awarded following the seven days of racing. The AMA Fast Brain Award, AMA Vet/Senior Racer of the Year and AMA Youth Racer of the Year will also be announced.

American Flat Track (AFT) will bring pro-level action on Saturday, June 17, with a Grand National Mile where the sport’s stars will take to Du Quoin’s legendary “Magic Mile.”
