New Pro Class Details Announced for the 2007ATV National

The new ATV Pro Racing status elevates the sport to the professional level of racing enjoyed by AMA Motocross, AMA Supercross, AMA Suberbike, AMA Supermoto, and AMA Flat Track.

Steve Whitelock, AMA Supercross and Motocross Director, announced the creation of the ATV Pro division of AMA Pro Racing on November 11, 2006, at the 2006 ATVA National Motocross Championship Awards Ceremony in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee .


With the recognition of AMA Pro ATV status, the ATV Pro class riders will enjoy AMA Pro License benefits, such as a $50,000 rider medical insurance program, issuance of a pro license, and award of the AMA Pro National Championship No. 1 plate at the annual AMA Pro Racing Awards Banquet in Las Vegas, Nevada.


Last week, 51 ATV racers were issued invitations by AMA Pro Racing to apply for the AMA Pro ATV license. The annual fee for the license is $250, and entitles the holder to free gate entry to all ATV motocross national events. All riders participating in the Pro class must hold an AMA Pro ATV license. Licenses must be applied for and issued in advance by the AMA, and cannot be obtained at the events.

Pro riders who did not receive an application should contact AMA Pro Racing at 800.AMA JOIN.


As AMA Pro Racing Motocross Director, Whitelock will oversee the new ATV Pro division for AMA. A Series Manager will be announced soon by AMA Pro Racing, to attend and officiate the Pro class at all events. A further significant development resulting from ATV’s new status with Pro Racing is the creation of the AMA Pro Racing Rulebook, setting forth rules specifically applicable to ATV Pro Racing. The ATV Rules Committee is finalizing the Rulebook at this time, and will release the new book shortly.
