GNC Mains cancelled but Baker stretches lead

SANTA ROSA, Calif. - Unfortunately, heavy mist resulted in the cancelation of both the AMA Pro Grand National Expert and AMA Pro J&P Cycles Pro Singles main events Sunday at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, Calif. AMA Pro Racing officials deemed the track unsafe to race on after multiple attempts to dry and stabilize the surface.

"It's very unfortunate that we couldn't get the main events in today," said Dan Johnsen, Director of AMA Pro Flat Track. "We tried everything we could as far as prepping the track to get it back in racing condition but the mist was deceivingly limiting to our efforts."

Each rider that was scheduled to participate in their respective main events will be awarded one point in the standings. The usual point and cash payouts for the Grand National Expert Dash for Cash will remain the same. Normal purse payouts will be paid to both the Grand National Expert Twins and the J&P Cycles Pro Singles riders per order of their starting positions for each main event.

Brad Baker's victory in the Dash will result in him receiving an additional five points to his credit, increasing his lead in the overall standings to 17 markers over second-place competitor Bryan Smith with only one round remaining.

AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles heads to Pomona, Calif. for the 13th and final round of the season on October 12 at the LA County Fairplex. For tickets and more information regarding the event, please visit http://www.flattrackfinals.com/
