AMA Legends & Champions WeekendNovember 18-20, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada
The AMA Legends & Champions Weekend features history's motorcycling legends, today's amateur champions and collectible motorcycles of every genre.

Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa
11011 West Charleston Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV (702) 797-7878
Kicking off the weekend is the 2011 Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Friday evening, Nov. 18.
The 2011 Motorcycle Hall of Fame Concours d'Elegance bike show takes place the next day, Saturday, Nov. 19, showcasing many of the country's most impressive original and restored classic motorcycles.
The weekend culminates with the AMA Racing Championship Banquet on Sunday, Nov. 20, where amateur AMA Racing champions of all ages will be recognized for their 2011 accomplishments.
"In recent years, the AMA Legends & Champions Weekend has reached new heights, celebrating motorcycling's past and present with a world-class event at one of America's most electrifying destination cities," said AMA Board of Directors Chairman Stan Simpson. "We invite all motorcyclists to join us at the Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa on Nov. 18-20 as we spotlight motorcycling's enduring legends and amateur racing's top talent, not to mention some very cool motorcycles."
AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley said that he's thrilled to offer amateur racing champions the opportunity to celebrate motorcycling history as they are recognized for their own successful seasons.
"AMA amateur racers are the backbone of the sport of motorcycle competition," Bromley said. "They have as much invested in motorcycling as anybody, and the chance for them to witness how a career of dedication and hard work can bring recognition in the revered Motorcycle Hall of Fame is a unique opportunity. For some of them, that path to legendary status starts with the AMA National No. 1 plates that they will collect Nov. 20 at the AMA Racing Championship Banquet."
Held the same weekend as the nearby AMA EnduroCross finale, the events make for a can't-miss celebration of two-wheeled history and competition.
