AMA Pro Racing is deeply saddened by the tragic passing of American Flat Track competitor Jamison Minor (21) and extends heartfelt condolences to his family.

Emergency medical personnel were on scene and responded to the incident within seconds. Minor was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, NC where he succumbed to his injuries on Sunday.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time."
