American Motorcyclist Association Press Release:
The American Motorcyclist Association is announcing the nominees for 2014 year-end awards, which recognize individuals and organizations that excelled in AMA competition and recreational activity during the previous 12 months.
All AMA members are invited to help select the winners of the competition categories, including the prestigious AMA Athlete of the Year honors.
The awards will be presented at the 2014 AMA Championship Banquet on Saturday, Jan. 17, at the Aladdin Shrine Event and Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio.
“AMA-sanctioned events are the gold standard of motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle racing,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “These are the greatest grassroots motorsports disciplines in the world. The racers and organizers nominated for these awards have all exhibited poise, dignity and excellence, while helping to advance the AMA’s mission to promote and protect motorcycling.”
AMA members can vote through Sunday, Dec. 7. All AMA members who vote will be entered in a drawing for AMA-branded gear.
The AMA’s highest competitive honor, the AMA Athlete of the Year, recognizes two categories of outstanding AMA racers. One award honors an athlete who stands atop an AMA National Championship Series. Another recognizes one of the amateur racers who has excelled at an AMA Grand Championship event.
