AMA Vintage Motocross National Championship Series expands for 2014

November 27, 2013


There will be more opportunity to race vintage motocross in 2014, thanks to an expansion of the AMA Vintage Motocross National Championship Series. The seven-round series will roll through Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky and Indiana from May to October.

"Vintage motocross is evolving at an exciting pace," said AMA Motocross Operational Coordinator Alex Hunter. "We learned a lot in our first year, and we are putting those lessons to work in 2014."

New facilities for 2014 include Sunset Ridge MX in Walnut, Ill.; Russell Creek MX in Greensburg, Ky.; and Mammoth East in Paoli Peaks, Ind. Racers also will have additional classes to choose from, particularly expanded non-current classes.

"We'll also be putting into place a new advancement system to recognize our faster riders with well-earned A-class designations," Hunter added. "As with all AMA-sanctioned competition, riders will have the option of joining the AMA as part of our family membership option or participating using the new one-event pass.

"One of vintage racing's most enduring qualities is its accessibility," Hunter said. "Almost anyone with an old dirtbike can find a place to race in our series and be competitive. It's some of the most fun you can have on two wheels."

The program is also shifting to a one-day format for 2014.

"Promoters asked that we streamline the program," Hunter said. "In addition, with several riders traveling to compete, many reported that a one-day format would be more manageable. In making this change, we also responded to organizer and racer feedback and split motocross into its own national series this year."
