The AMA numbering system is based on five criteria. Current National Champions can carry the # 1 if they choose. Former National Champions can choose numbers 2-9. Riders ranked in the top 10 in combined Supercross and Motocross points can choose a Career Number from 10-999 (as indicated below). Riders outside the top 10 in combined points are assigned consecutive numbers through 99 based on year-end points. And riders outside the top-99 can keep their 2002 racing numbers by renewing their AMA Pro Racing licenses before Nov. 20.
