In an effort to save teams, manufacturers and promoters money, AMA Pro Racing announced today that it will introduce a new two-day racing format for its road racing series at selected rounds in 2014.
"Although the weekend format will be condensed at certain events in 2014, fans can still expect the same great racing action and entertainment value from our valued promoter partners," said Michael Gentry, Chief Operating Officer of AMA Pro Racing, in a release issued today. "We're thankful for the valuable input we have received from our major stakeholders as we have formulated this plan and look forward to debuting the new format to the fans next season."
New Jersey Motorsports Park has already signed up for the new format for its round on September 13-14.
"New Jersey Motorsports Park is excited to be a part of this new weekend format which will allow our fans to take part in non-stop racing excitement condensed into two days," said Brad Scott, Chief Operating Officer/GM of New Jersey Motorsports Park in the AMA Pro release. "This unique doubleheader race weekend will be packed with both on-track and off-track activities from Saturday morning to late Sunday afternoon."
