AMA to Launch Pro ATV Motocross Championship
AMA
 The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and AMA Pro Racing have announced the creation of a new professional ATV racing championship set to begin with the 2007 season.The series will be based on motocross style competition and will feature 450cc machines. An expansion to include a 250cc-based class is expected for 2008.

“With the continued sales growth and availability of sport ATVs in the United States and the expanding popularity of racing, the time is right to launch this championship,” said AMA CEO Patti DiPietro. “This discipline will receive the same level of support as our other pro racing series and will help elevate the awareness and professionalism of ATV competition.”

A television package is under development as is a dedicated website. AMA staff is preparing a rule book and homologation information. The 2007 schedule will feature up to 12 outdoor events managed by ATV-specific racing staff members. Five to six indoor events will be added in 2008. Transponder timing and scoring will be utilized. AMA staff is working with the major ATV manufacturers to establish a contingency program. An AMA Pro ATV Racing rules-making committee will also be created comprised of participants involved with the championship.

DiPietro added that the new pro series will run in conjunction with current ATVA events and will create a better progression for amateur riders aspiring to become professionals. “We will issue pro licenses to top riders competing in ATVA competition,” commented DiPietro. These competitors will have the opportunity to earn an AMA Pro number one plate and be recognized as an AMA Champion.”

More information about the championship will be issued in the coming days.
