Dalton Winkler reinstated by AMA Pro Racing after completing Road to Recovery program
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 31, 2015) - AMA Pro Racing announced today that AMA Pro Flat Track GNC2 competitor Dalton Winkler completed the Road to Recovery program, the sanctioning body's requirements for substance abuse rehabilitation, and has been reinstated to competition effective immediately.
"The Road to Recovery program was really helpful to me as it helped me get my priorities reset away from the track," said Winkler. "It helped me grow up a lot over the last few months and made me realize that nothing is worth compromising an opportunity to do what I love and I have a clear sight of that now. It's been tearing me apart not being able to race and I look forward to getting back on the motorcycle next round at Sturgis."
Winkler, pilot of the No. 35S Scott Powersports Yamaha in GNC2 competition, will take to the track at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D., for the Black Hills Half-Mile on Aug. 4.
