PICKERINGTON, Ohio (June 6, 2022) — Motul will be the Official Oil of the 2022 Mission Foods AMA Flat Track Grand Championship, which takes place July 7-13 at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds in Du Quoin, Ill.
“Motul is excited to support the premier amateur flat track event in the United States as the Official Oil of the AMA Flat Track Grand Championship,” said Motul USA’s Marketing Manager Nolan Browning. “Many of the teams and riders have been a crucial part of the development for our Motul V-twin performance oils and cleaners, so this opportunity was a perfect fit.”
Motul started its first enterprise in 1853 on the heels of the Industrial Revolution, seizing the opportunity of the era by focusing on innovation excellence. Motul didn’t just work to create the right oil for the purpose, the company worked to harness the knowledge gained along the way to come up with pioneering innovations, such as Motul 300V, which was introduced in 1971 as the first fully synthetic 4-stroke lubricant based on Esters.
“Motul’s involvement in many forms of motorcycle racing shows the company’s passion for supporting racers at all levels,” said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. “We’re honored to have Motul support the Mission Foods AMA Flat Track Grand Championship this year, investing in flat track racing at the amateur level.”
The AMA FTGC has served as the premier amateur flat track event since the mid-1970s and is the only race in the country where you can earn an AMA National No. 1 plate in amateur flat track racing. This year’s event will feature AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer and On Any Sunday star David Aldana as Grand Marshal. Aldana plans to strap on his own steel shoe to race the Du Quoin Mile, which will be his first time racing a Mile event since his On Any Sunday days.
AMA National No. 1 plates will be awarded to racers in each class who have the highest number of points across all four disciplines of flat track racing: Mile, Half-Mile, Short Track and TT.
Special awards that will be presented at the end of the event program include the prestigious Nicky Hayden AMA Flat Track Horizon Award, AMA Fast Brain Award, AMA Vet/Senior Racer of the Year and AMA Youth Racer of the Year.
