CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Jamison Minor, who was injured during Saturday’s American Flat Track event at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, died from his injuries on Sunday.

Minor, 21, was involved in a crash on the opening lap of the AFT Singles feature on Saturday evening. Minor crashed on the backstretch and according to fan reports, was struck by other bikes after crashing.

He was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C., after the crash, where he was being treated in the intensive care unit before succumbing to his injuries.

“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.”

Minor finished eighth in the American Flat Track Singles class championship in 2016, scoring a podium finish during the Oklahoma City Mile event at Remington Park. He finished fourth in the Singles class standings in 2015.
