The California Flat Track Association is proud to announce a partnership with SMI, the promoter of the AMA Pro Sacramento Mile. CFTA will present a day-after Amateur race, sanctioned by the AMA, on Sunday, May 31, on the same track that the Pros will ride the night before, making for a full weekend of Mile racing.

On Saturday night, fans will be treated to an AMA Pro Grand National Flat Track race, with the best riders in the world in attendance, roaring around a magnificent mile track. The following day, Amateur riders will do the same, honing their skills in the hopes that they will someday race at the Pro level. Fans will have open pit access during the event, giving them the opportunity to get close to the sport’s rising young stars as well as enjoy some classic Vintage-class racing.

“It is a unique experience to race a track the size of the Sacramento Mile,” said promoter Steve McLaughlin. “Kids and veteran riders rarely get to open up the throttle as much as this will allow. It will give them a chance to work on honing the speed skills needed to move up into the professional ranks of AMA Pro GNC competition. We are excited to watch them race!”

Randy Kremlacek, founder and CEO of the CFTA, said the Sacramento Mile event is another important step in the development of the CFTA.

“This is a breakout year for CFTA and our riders,” Kremlacek explained. “Since the inception of the organization in 2010, the vision has been to create higher standards in Amateur flat-track race promotion. Over the past few years, our crew has worked hard to become a top western U.S. regional promoter. Being chosen to promote an event at the legendary Sacramento Mile this year is an honor, and fulfills that vision. This CFTA race is the only Amateur Mile event on the West Coast.”

The CFTA has joined forces with the AMA to promote a 2015 AMA/ CFTA California Championship Flat Track Series. The series is designed as a stepping stone between club events and National professional racing. It is a nine-round series run on a wide variety of track surfaces throughout California. The schedule was designed to challenge riders, develop a diverse set of racing skills, and ultimately recognize the top Amateur talent in California.

Riders are expected to flock in from the western half of the United States and Canada to take advantage of this rare opportunity.
