2018 Wiseco ATV Motocross Series Schedule Announcement
10-Round Professional and Amateur Circuit
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (November 17, 2017) – MX Sports Pro Racing and the ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG) are pleased to announce the 2018 schedule for the Wiseco ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship. The 33rd annual Wiseco ATVMX series will feature 10 rounds for both the AMA Pro class and amateur competitors.
The 2018 season will kick off with the fourth annual FLY Racing ATV Supercross at the popular Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. For the first time ever, the race will be a points-paying event for ATVMX Pro and select amateur championship classes, with points being awarded in the main events.
From there, the series moves to the newest addition on the circuit, South of the Border in Hamer, South Carolina, and then will move on to take place at staple stops such as Underground MX, Ironman Raceway, High Point Raceway, Muddy Creek Raceway, Sunset Ridge MX, Unadilla MX and RedBud, before cumulating at the popular Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
"The 2017 Wiseco ATV Motocross series maintained the great tradition of competition that has been a hallmark of the program since its inception in 1985,” said MX Sports Pro Racing Competition Director, Roy Janson. "In addition to a great year of Pro Racing, culminating with a new first time National Champion, Joel Hetrick, all of the other elements that make up the series remained strong for 2017, with consistent entry numbers and a highly competitive year of amateur competition, supported by strong viewership numbers on both MAVTV and RacerTV."
The Wiseco ATVMX series has been the home for four-wheeled ATV racing since 1985, and remains America’s premier ATV racing series. This year, Joel Hetrick broke through for his first AMA Pro class championship, breaking the five-year streak of Chad Wienen.
