AMA Classic Grand Tour

The AMA Classic Grand Tour will return to celebrate the AMA’s 95th anniversary. The tour was previously operated in 2009 and 2003.

Do you know what the towns of Jamaica Plain, Mass.; Kalamazoo, Mich.; and Panama City, Fla., have in common? They’re towns that have the sequential letters A-M-A in their name, and these can be a participation point on your AMA Classic Grand Tour.

But it doesn’t just have to be a town name. Your submission can be anything that is signage -- a street sign, park sign or business billboard.
