Future Supercross and Motocross stars will battle for points and purse at 2011 AMA Racing Pro/Am events

Published December 24th, 2010

Future Supercross and Motocross stars will battle for points and purse at 2011 AMA Racing Pro/Am events - Photo 1 of 1The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce the 2010 AMA Racing Pro/Am motocross schedule. These events are where dreams begin for amateur racers, and where they earn the credentials to line up at an AMA Supercross or AMA Pro Racing Motocross event.

“Our Pro/Am competitors race at these premier tracks for the points, purse money and contingency that will help them get to the next level,” said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley. “This year’s schedule is one of the best, with 53 events at some of the country’s most challenging race tracks and staged by the sport’s top promoters and organizers. This schedule will no doubt help prepare the fastest amateur motocross racers on the planet for the pro ranks.”

A highlight of the 2010 calendar is the historic Florida motocross facility, Gatorback. Promoted by Unlimited Sports, the location will host the first and last rounds of the schedule.

“Pro/am racers are hungry, not just for the points to get their pro license, but for race wins,” said Wyn Kern of Unlimited Sports. “For many of these kids, they need to excel to keep their dreams alive. This creates an unmatched competitive atmosphere and an incredible on-track show for the fans of the sport. The AMA Racing Pro/Am events are two highlights on our schedule, and we’re looking forward to two stellar events.”

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.

“The AMA Racing Pro/Am program is critical to the natural progression of a rider through the amateur ranks of AMA amateur motocross all the way up to getting their AMA Supercross license,” Crowther said. “We are pleased to see such a strong schedule for 2011. The program gets stronger every year and makes our job of licensing new professional Supercross and Motocross riders even more rewarding.”

AMA Racing 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 that professional racing demands.

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