Glen Helen Raceway off the schedule
MX Sports Pro Racing, Inc., in conjunction with the ATVA, formally announced the 2010 schedule for the ITP/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship Presented by Parts Unlimited. The 2010 series will kick off March 27-28 at Millcreek Raceway in Pell City, Ala. and conclude at Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. August 14-15.
New to the series is longtime AMA Pro Motocross Championship facility Spring Creek Motocross Park scheduled to host its first ATV national in Millville, Minn., June 12-13.
“We’re excited to host our very first ATV Motocross National at Spring Creek,” says seasoned AMA National Motocross promoter John Martin. “Minnesota and Wisconsin have an active community of quad participation, so once riders find out the top Pro and amateur riders are coming to town, it’s going to draw an amazing group of local talent and fans.”
Another addition to the schedule is an eleventh points-paying amateur round. Last year’s season consisted of 10 amateur rounds and 11 pro rounds – the difference being the pro-only opening round in Glen Helen, San Bernardino, CA. For the first time in years, the tour will not open in California.
“Since 2004, Glen Helen Raceway has hosted the opening round of the Championship Series and we hope to return when the economy for our motorsports industry rebounds,” says ATVPG Director, Sam Gammon.
With the addition of the 11th amateur round, the amateurs will have one more throw-away, i.e., the best 8 out of 11 races will count towards series championship points. All rounds will continue to count towards the Pro and Pro-Am class championships.
