TO: 2020 Pro Motocross, Loretta Lynn, GNCC, and ATVMX Participants
FROM: The Race Leadership Team (RLT)
DATE: April 21, 2020
SUBJECT: RLT COMPETITION BULLETIN 2020-7:
All Motorsports Activities Postponed Thru May 9/10
Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns and in accordance with government recommendations regarding large group gatherings, the Race Leadership Team (RLT) has postponed all motorsports activities thru May 9/10, 2020. This decision affects the following race series: AMA Loretta Lynn Amateur Motocross.
Accordingly, the following events originally scheduled for the weekend of May 9/10 are postponed, and every effort will be made to reschedule as soon as possible:
LLAQ NE High Point Mt. Morris, PA
LLAQ SE Lazy River Dalton, GA
LLAQ ME Baha Acres Millington, MI
LLAQ NC Sunset Ridge Walnut, IL
LLAQ SC Swan MX Tyler, TX
LLAQ NW Eugene MX Junction City, OR
LLAQ SW Fox Raceway Pala, CA
The Area Qualifier and Regional race schedules are complicated and have been drastically altered by the national crisis. MX Sports recently released a “State of the Sport” video address explaining the various schedule options, including a condensed Area Qualifier schedule for May and Regional schedule for June (Plan B), a Super Regional schedule for June/July (Plan C) and a 2-week National-only program in July/August (Plan D). A final decision on the program chosen will be announced as soon as possible.
The status of the remaining race schedules:
The current Pro Motocross schedule consists of 11 rounds spanning from June 13th through September 5th.
June 13 WW Ranch, FL
June 20 High Point, PA
June 27 Southwick, MA
July 4 RedBud, MI
July 11 Thunder Valley, CO
July 18 Spring Creek, MN
July 25 Washougal, WA
Aug. 15 Unadilla, NY
Aug. 22 Budds Creek, MD
Aug. 29 Ironman, IN
Sept. 5 Pala, CA
This schedule is subject to change as the state-by-state recovery plan unfolds across the nation.
The Snowshoe GNCC, previously scheduled for June 27/28 has been postponed to September 26/27. This date was previously set for the Tomahawk GNCC in NY. To accommodate the request, the Tomahawk will be rescheduled and the new date announced as soon as possible.
The remainder of the current GNCC schedule consists of 10 events on the following dates:
May 16/17 TBA
May 30/31 John Penton, OH
June 13/14 TBA
June 27/28 TBA
July 11/12 TBA
Aug. 1 Loretta Lynn eMTB only
Sept. 12/13 Mountaineer, WV
Sept. 26/27 Snowshoe, WV
Oct. 10/11 Mathews Farm, PA
Oct. 24/25 Ironman, IN
Nov. 7/8 TBA
As a reminder, the schedule remains dynamic and is subject to change. As the crisis affects different parts of the country differently, it is reasonable to expect recovery plans to differ from state to state as well. Most likely some areas of the country will recover quicker than others, and it may be necessary to change locations (but not dates) to accommodate the recovery. Accordingly, a final schedule with final locations will be issued as soon as it is feasible to do so.
The current schedule remains unchanged from the last RLT Comp. Bulletin issued:
May 23/24 Ironman, IN
June 6/7 Muddy Creek, TN
June 20/21 Walnut, IL
July 11/12 Unadilla, NY
July 25/26 RedBud, MI
Aug. 15/16 Loretta Lynn’s, TN
Aug. 28 Pro Only – Ironman, IN
Sept. 19/20 Underground, TX
Oct. 17/18 SOB, SC
About the Race Leadership Team:
The RLT consists of representatives from the AMA, MX Sports and MX Sports Pro Racing. The RLT will reconvene next Monday to review race schedules, making adjustments as needed, and will work with event organizers to reschedule events when possible.
The RLT continues to urge racing families to use common sense: 1) wash your hands often; 2) avoid shaking hands or coming into close personal contact with others; 3) cough into your elbow; 4) if you are sick, stay home; 5) if you are really sick, go to the hospital; and 6) don’t panic.
The health, safety and welfare of our riders and their families remains paramount, and we will keep our race community apprised of all further developments.
