Pre-Registration Now Open for the 2024 Mission Foods AMA Flat Track Grand Championship

Discounted registration available for racers interested in competing at weeklong event in Du Quoin, Ill.

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (April 29, 2024) — The American Motorcyclist Association has officially opened pre-registration for the 2024 Mission Foods AMA Flat Track Grand Championship, which will run June 30-July 6 at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds in Du Quoin, Ill.

With a wide range of flat track racing in multiple classes available during the weeklong event, those interested in competing can pre-register at

“The prestigious Mission Foods AMA Flat Track Grand Championship is coming quickly,” said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant, “and we urge racers to take advantage of pre-registration and receive a discounted rate to compete. This year is also the third year of having Mission Foods as our title sponsor, and we appreciate their continued support of our amateur flat track racers.”

Pre-registration comes with multiple benefits, including a discounted rate for racers. Racers who register early will pay $80 per class — $25 less, per class, than the price of general registration.

Along with the reduced price, pre-registered racers will receive expedited check-in speeds and — for those who pre-register before June 3 — will get their name on a commemorative 2024 AMA Flat Track Grand Championship T-Shirt.

Wristbands for gate entry can be purchased for $25 per day or $75 for the entire week, while pit bike passes are $20. Pit vehicles may only be operated by persons 21 years or older, holding a valid state operator’s license. All passes can be purchased online in advance of the event.

Racers will compete for AMA National No. 1 plates in four disciplines of flat track racing: Short Track, TT, Mile and Half-Mile.

The Nicky Hayden AMA Flat Track Horizon Award — presented annually to the amateur racer that is most primed for success at the professional level — will be awarded at the conclusion of the event. The AMA Bill Werner Fast Brain Award, AMA Vet/Senior Racer of the Year and AMA Youth Racer of the Year will also be announced during the event.
