Venue for Central New York event on 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule has been changed to Rolling Wheels Raceway Park

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – July 6, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Officials from AMA Pro Racing and Central New York Raceway Park (CNYRP) announced today that the AMA Pro Flat Track event scheduled for Saturday, August 20 has been moved to Rolling Wheels Raceway Park in Elbridge, N.Y. The decision was made by CNYRP and AMA Pro Racing representatives as unforeseen construction delays might leave the CNYRP facility not ready to host the event.

“Our original plan had been to hold the event at our brand new facility; however, since the beginning, we have been working on the contingency plan of hosting the event at Rolling Wheels Raceway,” said CNYRP President Glenn Donnelly. “We are excited to still be able to bring AMA Pro Flat Track back to Central New York and give the fans a great show at another top facility.”

CNYRP and AMA Pro Racing representatives toured Rolling Wheels Raceway in early June and deemed the facility as a suitable backup location for the AMA Pro Flat Track event. The venue offers the same synthetic surface and track size as the current dirt oval that is under construction at CNYRP, and an AMA Pro GNC2 rider from the region completed a successful test at Rolling Wheels Raceway in 2015.

CNYRP looks forward to bringing AMA Pro Flat Track to the state-of-the-art facility when construction is complete in 2017. Details on ticket information and event schedule for the August 20th AMA Pro Flat Track event will be released shortly. Those looking for accommodations for the event can receive a 10% discount on hotel rooms at Comfort Suites Cicero, Days Inn Brewerton, Best Western Plus Liverpool and Super 8 Liverpool by using CNYRP as their discount code.

CNYRP is located in Central Square, NY and is currently under construction.  Once completed, CNYRP will feature a 5/8-mile synthetic dirt oval, a 2.2-mile road course, a full service restaurant, VIP suites, an observation deck and a full production studio.
