FIM North America Continental Motocross Championship Heads to
High Point Raceway in the United States and Moto Park in Canada
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (March 29, 2022) – MX Sports, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and FIM North America are excited to partner together and announce the FIM North America Continental Motocross Championship; a series of two events in 2022 that will allow riders to compete in Canada and the United States. The first event will be held on September 10 and 11 at Moto Park in Chatsworth, Ontario Canada, and the second event will be held on October 1 and 2 at High Point Raceway in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania.
Riders will be able race both events with the hopes of earning FIM North America Continental Championship honors. The intent of this championship is to give racers from Canada and the United States a unique opportunity to compete against each other for championship honors, and with events in both the United States and Canada, racers contesting both events have the opportunity to race on foreign and home soil.
"This event gives riders the opportunity to compete in a prestigious FIM North America Championship,” said Carl Bastedo, founder of MotoPark. “Competing against riders from both countries will be sure to create friendships and rivalries which will translate into better results in the future from both countries.”
Championship classes will include Supermini, 250 A, Open A, 250 B, Open B, 250 A/B All Star, Open A/B All Star, Vet 30+, Senior 40+ and Women. Additional Support Classes will be available at both events. The High Point event will utilize classes from the PAMX series which will be racing in conjunction with the event, and likewise MotoPark will offer support classes similar to the PAMX series.
“This promises to be a unique opportunity for Canadian and American riders to compete head-to-head.” said MX Sports’ Jared Bolton. “It’s been common to see professional racers from the United States racing the Canadian series, and vice-versa, but it’s rare to see this happen in amateur racing. The goal here is to open up opportunities for riders to not only compete for championship honors but visit new locations and meet new people along the way!”
