LORETTA LYNN'S AREA QUALIFIER

MAY 6-7, 2017

THIS EVENT IS ON FOR THIS WEEKEND…RAIN OR SHINE, THE AREA QUALIFIERS RUN..the track was left sealed so the rain we have been getting has been running off.

Those who use this event to qualify for Loretta Lynn’s will attend the Northeast Regional. Whether you intend to qualify or not, this weekend is open to all racers.

All racing will be on “U-2” – our all-natural track built with novice, amateur, and expert racers in mind. U-2 contains many of the same features as it’s big brother – major hills, jumps, sweeper and off-camber turns. Don’t let the “2” in it’s name fool you; U-2 doesn’t take a back seat.

Please note there is NO Friday practice.

RACING INFORMATION


RACE / CLASS DETAILS

If there are more than 41 racers per class, then qualifiers will be run. The results of the Qualifiers and the Consi will count as the Moto 1 finish in that class. The number of positions to advance from the Qualifiers to Moto 2 will be set; the remainder will transfer to a Consi. The finishers of each Qualifier will then receive their corresponding score for Moto 1. Thus, there will be two 1st place finishers, two 2nd, two 3rd, and so on, for Moto 1. The winner of the Consi will get a score of one more than the last rider transferring from the Qualifier. The Qualifier with the fastest time will receive priority gate pick for Moto 2.

  • All classes run two motos
  • Both motos count towards overall finish
  • The class listing button to the left details which day each class qualifies

REGISTRATION PROCEDURE

All racers must be a member of the AMA or ATVA. You can join at the track but are highly encouraged to join/renew online prior to arrival as long as you are connected to a printer. Make sure to bring the printout with you.

For Sunday’s racing you need to be a member of AMA District #3 or another AMA district if you are not qualifying. Membership cards will be required. If you aren’t a member of an AMA District, you can join District #3 for the year or pay a $10 non-member fee at the track.

Racers under the age of 18 in possession of a “Competition Membership” card from the AMA are still expected to have a parent or guardian in attendance. If a parent is not in attendance, then a dated, signed, and notarized permission slip from your parent with the event name, dates, and location is required. The slip MUST be notarized.

MINOR RELEASE FORM

All racers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their parent. If a parent will not be in attendance, then a notarized permission slip is absolutely required. Even if a sibling 18 years or older is the responsible party, a notarized permission slip is still required. THE AMA COMPETITION MEMBERSHIP CARD AND RELEASE WILL NOT OVERRIDE THIS REQUIREMENT. The permission slip must read as follows:

I hereby give permission for my (son/daughter), (child’s name) to race in the Loretta Lynn’s Area Qualifier at Unadilla MX, New Berlin, NY on May 6-May 7, 2017. (Name) will be responsible for (him/her) during the event.

Signed _______________________________________

Notarized signature and seal

A notary public can be found at your bank, local government offices, local public schools, and in many places of business. The permission slip MUST be notarized. We recommend a second notarized slip stating that the responsible party can make medical decisions for the minor should that be necessary.

All non-US citizen racers must have class clearance from the AMA to participate at the Loretta Lynn’s National in Tennessee. We encourage you to contact the AMA Motocross Racing Department at 1-800-AMA-JOIN or mxracing@ama-cycle.org prior to attending any Area Qualifier. You can participate in the Area Qualifier prior to contacting the AMA but this step must be taken prior to the National. You need to make sure you are eligible for the class you are qualifying in so start this process as soon as possible.

Pre-entry and post entry are available for Saturday and Sunday. Pre-entry is open through Thursday, May 4th at 6:00 pm. Pre-entry links, by day, are located on the left.
