Indy Mile AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National at Indiana State Fairgrounds Moves to Friday night for 2014. Tickets now on Sale.
(Indianapolis) Tickets for the legendary Indy Mile AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Motorcycle race for 2014 are now on sale. The race will be held as a part of the Indiana State Fair, this year on a Friday night - August 8, 2014 from 2:00pm-10:00pm on the historic one-mile dirt track at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.
The move to Friday is necessitated by conflicting events on the weekend of the Indy Mile. Motorcycle racing fans coming for the Red Bull Indy GP weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway love heading across town to witness the intense handlebar-to-handlebar high-speed dirt track action of the Indy Mile. For 2014, that weekend coincides with the busiest weekend for the Indiana State Fair. So, in an effort to provide the best fan experience for attendees of the Indy Mile, event producers have moved the race to Friday to accommodate easier parking, crowd control and less-heavy traffic than would be the case on the State Fair's most-attended day on Saturday.
