|DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 30, 2015) – The Castle Rock TT, originally scheduled for Aug. 1, has been canceled due to unforeseen circumstances with the Mt. St. Helens Motorcycle Club, the promoters of the event.
“We regret not being able to host AMA Pro Flat Track and the Castle Rock TT in 2015,” said Jeremiah Cameron, president of the Mt. St. Helens Motorcycle Club. “We are looking forward to using this year to focus on making our club healthy again and we are optimistic about 2016 and the possibility of bringing AMA Pro Flat Track back.”
The Castle Rock TT dates back as far as 1965 as part of the AMA Pro Flat Track schedule. In 2014, Henry Wiles took the checkered flag en route to sweeping both TTs on the schedule, as he also won the Peoria TT.
The historic Peoria TT, set for Aug. 16 at the iconic Peoria Motorcycle Club in Peoria, Ill., is now the lone Tourist Trophy event on the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule.
“This is unfortunate for our many fans in the Pacific Northwest,” said Michael Gentry, Chief Operating Officer of AMA Pro Racing. “We hope to bring the sport back to the region in 2016 and beyond.”
Next up on the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule is the Du Quoin Mile in Du Quoin, Ill., on July 4. The event marks AMA Pro Flat Track’s return to the historic Magic Mile after a nine-year hiatus.
