AMA Pro Racing released a statement early this week that it is deeply saddened by the tragic passing of American Flat Track competitor Jamison Minor and extends heartfelt condolences to his family.
Minor, age 21, a New Hampshire native, was involved in a multi-bike accident on the first lap of the AFT Singles race during Saturday’s event in Charlotte. 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.
"Jamison exemplified the spirit of the sport and the entire American Flat Track community is in mourning today,” said Michael Lock, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “He was impressive on and off the race track, with a positive, upbeat attitude that showed the markings of a future star. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time."
