Racers fly into the first corner during a race at the 2017 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. Next year’s first Area Qualifiers will kick off February 10.

“The AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship is one of the most highly sought-after Amateur Motocross championships in the country,” said AMA motocross manager Ricky Rickords. “Competing in Area Qualifiers and qualifying for AMA Regional Championships is the path all racers take for a chance to win an AMA National Championship at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch. The AMA and MX Sports have worked diligently to ensure that AMA members and their families are provided the best tracks and racing facilities at each qualifying event.”

Area Qualifiers are the first step toward qualifying for the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, which will be held from July 30 to August 4, 2018, at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. The first of 58 Area Qualifiers begin in February and they will run through the end of May, across 35 states. Racers of all ages will compete in various engine-displacement classes, from 50cc to 450cc, in hopes of moving on to a Regional Championship.

The AMA Regional Championships then serve as the next step to seed riders into the annual AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship. Only riders who finish in a qualifying position at a one of the 13 Regional Championship events are eligible to race the Amateur National event at the Loretta Lynn Ranch.

“The unveiling of the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship schedule is always highly anticipated, not just for the riders but for the organizers,” said director of MX Sports Tim Cotter. “The facilities and organizers that make up the Area Qualifier and Regional Championships are among the best in the nation. Each race organizer that has been selected is excited that the road to Loretta’s goes through their facility.”

This year’s lineup includes many historic tracks, such as Unadilla MX and High Point Raceway in the Northeast. Racing will also return to other favorite venues, such as the Southeast’s Muddy Creek Raceway, RedBud MX in the Mid-East, and Thunder Valley MX Park in the South-Central region.

The AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship is one of the longest-running motorsports championships in the country. The AMA launched the National Championship program in 1975. That year, a series of regional races qualified 135 riders in three classes – 125cc, 250cc and Open – for the championship round in Baldwin, Kansas. In 1982, the AMA partnered with MX Sports and the event moved to its current location at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills. There, the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship continues to crown the country’s top Amateur motocross racers every summer.
