LONG BEACH, Calif. – Final preparations are underway and the venerable Queen Mary ocean liner will be rocking this weekend (January 27-28) as the USA Speedway National Awards Banquet and Team USA Speedway Testimonial take place.
The weekend’s activities will recognize the champions of AMA USA Speedway in 2006 and honor several of the sport’s all-time greats, and proceeds will benefit AMA Team USA Speedway as it seeks to win the 2007 Speedway World Cup, Speedway racing’s counterpart to the Motocross of Nations.
USA Speedway appreciates the great support of these events from our many friends in the motocross and Supercross world, including:
• Youthstream and Budds Creek Motocross Park are Platinum Sponsors on behalf of the September 22-23 Motocross of Nations at Budds Creek, Maryland.
• AMA Racing is a Platinum Sponsor and AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days a Gold Sponsor
• Live Nation has generously donated Supercross and Monster Jam tickets for Sunday’s auction
• Dick Mann will be a special guest and signed copies of Ed Youngblood’s Mann of his Time are included in the auction

We will assign an “e-mail bidder” to bid on the behalf of the e-mail bidders who send us the highest bid on each item. High bids will not be revealed to anyone else and of course the “e-mail bidder” will not be allowed to bid on any of the e-mail auction items.
We are not professional auctioneers, so bear with us. If you expect Barrett Jackson, go away now so we won’t disappoint you. Proceeds from the weekend’s activities benefit AMA Team USA Speedway, so loosen up your wallet; it’s for a good cause.
