The following is from the AMA...

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) announced today the 2009 schedule for the AMA Racing Winter Dirt Track Series. Kicking off on Saturday, Feb. 28, and running through Wednesday, March 4, the series will feature five days of short-track, half-mile and TT racing at three separate venues.

"It's great to be headed to Florida once again for the 2009 AMA Racing Winter Dirt Track Series," said AMA Racing Dirt Track Director Ken Saillant. "Riders from around the country compete in this series to prepare themselves and their equipment for another fun-filled season. Dave Joiner and Steve Nace do an outstanding job of providing quality tracks and hard-working officials. There's no better way to shake off the winter cold, go fast, have fun, and size up the upcoming season's competition. It will be a great week."

Riders will face off in a number of age- and machine-based classes for early season bragging rights at the AMA Racing Winter Dirt Track Series. Some of the nation's top amateur talent will compete on bikes ranging from 50cc two-strokes to 450cc race-bred dirt-trackers based on modern four-stroke motocross machinery. With three dirt-track disciplines represented, it will give all racers a shot at winning an overall series title, regardless of their specialty.
