PICKERINGTON, Ohio - The American Motorcyclist Association has opened registration for the 2013 AMA Championship Banquet, set for Jan. 18, 2014, at the Aladdin Shrine Center in Columbus, Ohio.

The event honors the top three national championship finishers in disciplines ranging from land-speed racing to motocross to woods racing and everything in-between. The banquet includes dinner, door prizes, refreshments and a bike show.

"One feature that makes AMA-sanctioned competition stand out is the diversity of our disciplines," said AMA's vice president of operations, Jeff Massey. "From the woods to the ice to near-vertical ascents to tracks on a range of surfaces, AMA racers compete everywhere. And that variety is on display for all to see at the annual AMA Championship Banquet."

Class champions will receive medals and No. 1 plates at the banquet, while second- and third-place finishers will also receive awards. The winners of special annual awards, such as the AMA Grand Championship Athlete of the Year and the AMA National Championship Athlete of the Year awards will be announced as well.

"The annual championship banquet is also when we highlight the good works of our best and hardest-working clubs and promoters," Massey said. "We will recognize AMA organizers from competition and recreational road and off-road events, as well as those who excelled in media coverage and as ambassadors of the sport."
