Two-day competition to determine winners of AMA National No. 1 plates
PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The 2020 AMA Supermoto National Championship features two days of competition in November in Tucson, Ariz., to determine who receives the coveted AMA National No. 1 plate in five classes.
Originally scheduled as a six-event series, this national championship, sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association, will consist of four points-earning races. The format includes two races per day Nov. 7-8. Each race offers points toward the overall championship. The six scheduled events were canceled due to restrictions put in place by government officials during the coronavirus pandemic.
The series is run by the AMA promoter, DRT Racing. Classes include Open, Lites, National Amateur, Sportsman MX and Kids.
“The AMA, the organizer and the racers are ready to get this competition underway,” AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant said. “DRT Racing and the venue will be adhering to all state and local guidelines and directives related to the coronavirus to help ensure a safe weekend for all.”
A mixture of street-style racing and motocross, in Supermoto, racers compete on a track that combines dirt and pavement and includes jumps and sliding through turns. Tracks can range from football stadiums to closed-course streets to parking lots.
