FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Registration Now Open for the Third Annual FLY Racing ATV Supercross
at Daytona International Speedway
2017 AMA Pro Series Begins Tuesday, March 14
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (December 5, 2016) – MX Sports Pro Racing and the ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG) is pleased to announce the FLY Racing ATV Supercross will be returning on Tuesday, March 14, to Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. Serving as the opening round of the 2017 ProX ATV Motocross National Championship, presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship, and a unique non-points paying opportunity for amateur racers, registration is now open for the third annual event.
ATVMX will take center stage for its season opener following the opening weekend of “Bike Week” in 2017. The weekend will feature the renowned Daytona Supercross by Honda on Saturday, March 11, and the popular Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross on Sunday, March 12, and Monday, March 13. The track on the infield of the speedway is legendary for its challenging terrain and demanding nature, and is often considered a challenging hybrid of a motocross and supercross track.
“Fans were treated to an epic showdown at the ATVSX last year, and we are certain the battle will only continue this year,” said Tim Cotter, director of MX Sports. “The re-designed Supercross track accommodates the ATVs perfectly and makes it a great way to kick off the pro season.”
Following the format from years past, this event will implement an elimination format that mimics a true supercross style, via heats, an LCQ and main event for the AMA Pro ATV Class, rather than a pair of motos that determines an overall score.
Unique from the other rounds of the ATVMX season, Daytona will have a limited class line-up of 17 support classes, including youth, amateur and pro-am classes to accompany the premier AMA Pro ATV Class. However, only the professional competition will account for points towards the championship.
