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 is determined by Loretta Lynn’s rules; 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.

REGISTRATION PROCEDURE

TO GUARANTEE YOUR SPOT AT THIS REGIONAL, MAKE SURE TO REGISTER WITH MX SPORTS BY THE DEADLINE.

All racers must be a member of the AMA. 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.

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:

(DATE)
I hereby give permission for my (son/daughter), (child’s name) to race in the Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Regional Qualifier at Unadilla MX, New Berlin, NY on June 15-17, 2018. (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.

NON-REGISTERED QUALIFIED RACERS/ALTERNATES

  • Alternates will be placed based on power ranking.
  • Non-registered alternates will be accepted in all classes that do not cause the class to have to run qualifiers. In other words, if a class is pre-registered at 35 racers and all 35 are in attendance, there are 5 spots available for non-registered qualified racers or non-registered alternates.
  • If a class is pre-registered at 41 racers, then the number of available spots will depend upon no-shows. If a class is pre-registered with more than 41 racers, then up to 80 racers can be initially placed in the class.
  • Non-registered qualifier racers or non-registered alternates should come to registration during registration hours. You can participate in Friday’s practice day and Saturday morning’s practice. Placement in racing classes cannot be determined until after registration closes on Saturday morning. We will call anyone who is in this situation to registration to let you know whether or not you made it in. Your entry fee(s) will be refunded in any class we are unable to place you in.
