AMA Selects Buffalo Valley for Pro Hillclimb

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

AMA Pro Racing announced recently their return of the AMA Pro Hillclimb series to Buffalo Valley, Tennessee. The event will be hosted July 30 at Middle Tennessee Dragway, located just outside of Cookeville in Putnam County.

This return is highly welcomed after making its Tennessee debut as a 2015 season opener with thousands in attendance during the Tennessee H.O.G. Rally.

“The 2015 event was a great success. Fans quickly spread the word and are excited to come back this year. The Upper Cumberland is known for its hospitality to all riders. We extend a warm welcome to everyone including fans, racers and their teams," said Gary Bagwell, event coordinator.

In 2016, hillclimb racing will be held in conjunction with the Fourth Annual Boswell's Harley-Davidson H.O.G. Rendezvous on July 28-30 in Cookeville.

Amanda Campbell, director of the Pro Hillclimb Series said, "Being able to bring the excitement of AMA Pro Hillclimb to new fans has been a goal of the series in recent years. The riders greatly enjoyed the facilities provided at Middle Tennessee Dragway and competing on the 500 foot hill. All of the fans were very welcoming and eager to learn about the bikes and the racers. The excitement of the fans brings an added energy level to the event, making it one of the highlights for racers and teams in 2015."
