SACRAMENTO, Calif. (March 29, 2014) - Unfortunately, and due to unforeseen circumstances, the Sacramento Mile, an AMA Pro Flat Track event originally scheduled to take place on July 26, 2014 at the Cal Expo in Sacramento, Calif., has been canceled.
"This is a very unfortunate turn of events," said Bob Bellino, promoter of the Sacramento Mile for the last four years. "We're sorry that we won't be able to host the AMA Pro Flat Track races at the Cal Expo venue this year. There were unexpected complications with the horse racing industry regarding track conditions that have led to the improbable cancellation of the event. It is very disheartening to me that we won't run the Sacramento Mile in 2014."
The news comes as an obvious disappointment to fans, sponsors and riders, as the Sacramento Mile has been an exciting mainstay on the AMA Pro Flat Track schedule for the past four years, with a rich history that dates back to 1959.
The good news, however, is that though the Sacramento Mile has been canceled, there are still a number of AMA Pro Flat Track events scheduled to take place out west, including a half-mile at Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash., July 19, the Castle Rock TT in Castle Rock, Wash., August 2, the Santa Rosa Mile scheduled for September 28, 2014 in Santa Rosa, Calif., at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, just an hour and a half west of Sacramento, and the Flat Track Finals at the Fairplex in Pomona, Calif.
