First, join the AMA. Participants in AMA-sanctioned competition events must join up. Not only does the AMA provide consistent rules and guidelines that make racing fairer and safer, the AMA Government Relations Department fights for motorcyclists rights on the national level and helps organize and support local battles. There is strength in numbers, and we need everybody to be on board.

Contact the promoters for information about these classes.
