MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (January 25, 2018) – The ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG) is ecstatic to announce the brand-new state championship program that will be held in conjunction with the 33rd annual ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship.
For the first time ever, each of the 2018 ATVMX rounds, with the exception of the season finale at Loretta Lynn Ranch, will be deemed an ATVMX State Championship. Each youth and amateur class winner will walk away with an AMA State Championship No. 1 plate. The program will encourage growth of the sport at the grassroot level, where local racers can make their bid against the nation’s best four-wheeled competitors for the coveted state title.
“Having each round of ATV Motocross serve as an AMA State Championship is a huge boost for the ATV Motocross community,” said ATVPG President, Sam Gammon. “Not only does the prestige of the National Championship bring something special to each event, but now competitors have the extra incentive to earn an AMA State Championship at every race weekend.”
