Future stars will battle for points, purse money at 2012 AMA Pro/Am Motocross events

Published January 7th, 2012

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce the 2012 AMA Pro/Am Motocross schedule. AMA Pro/Am Motocross provides the proving ground for amateur racers to earn the credentials they need to line up at an AMA Supercross or AMA Pro Racing Motocross event.

“AMA Pro/Am Motocross represents the pinnacle of amateur motocross competition,” said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley. “Racers at these events compete at premier tracks around the country for the points, purse money and contingency that will help them get to the next level — AMA Supercross and AMA Pro Racing Motocross.

“This year’s schedule is one of the best ever, with more than 40 events at some of the country’s most challenging race tracks run by the sport’s top promoters and organizers. This schedule is designed to test riders with top competition and national-caliber tracks and prepare them for the pro ranks.”

Bromley added that the current AMA Pro/Am Motocross schedule is just the start for 2012 and that additional events will be added and announced throughout the course of the season.

The 2012 AMA Pro/Am Motocross season kicks off in Texas with the Texas Winter Series. It wraps up in Florida at the Winter Olympics.

AMA Director of Supercross Kevin Crowther added that the AMA Racing Pro/Am schedule and points process has contributed significantly to the skill and readiness of incoming AMA Supercross riders. He says that AMA Pro/AM Motocross competitors, who can also earn points toward their AMA Supercross license at AMA Arenacross events, are well prepared for professional competition.

“AMA Pro/Am Motocross provides the foundation of professional competition in this country and is integral to the natural progression of a rider through the amateur ranks all the way up to earning their AMA Supercross license,” Crowther said. “I am pleased to see such a promising schedule for 2012. AMA Pro/Am Motocross gets stronger every year and continues to help prepare the fastest AMA Supercross racers on the planet.”

AMA Pro/Am Motocross events are open to both professionally licensed and A-class amateur motocross racers. The events allow amateurs to gain experience on America’s top tracks and prepare for the fast pace and long motos featured at the pro level.

To be considered for a professional motocross license, competitors must have earned at least 75 advancement points (at the time of application) in AMA Pro/Am Motocross events in a continuous 12-month period. Points are based off overall finishes in either the 250 Pro/Am and Open Pro/Am classes. Points from each class are not combined.
