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 has been rescheduled for September 26/27 and the Tomahawk GNCC will be rescheduled to another date and announced as soon as possible.
The remainder of the current GNCC schedule consists of 10 events on the following dates:
|May 30/31||John Penton, OH|
|July 31||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|
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.
