FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2019 ATV Motocross Series Schedule Announcement
10-Round Professional and 8-Round Amateur Circuit
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (October 18, 2018) – MX Sports Pro Racing and the ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG) are pleased to announce the 2019 schedule for the ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship. The 34th Annual ATVMX Series will feature 10 rounds for the AMA Pro class and 8 rounds for amateur competitors.
The 2019 season will kick off with the first points-paying event for the AMA Pro class only at the popular Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida on Tuesday, March 12. From there the series moves to Underground MX in Kemp, Texas, on April 6 and 7 where round one for the amateur competitors will take place, and the second points-paying event for ATVMX Pro.
The series will then move on to such popular spots as Ironman Raceway, South of the Border, Muddy Creek Raceway, Sunset Ridge MX, Unadilla MX and RedBud MX, before the finale of the amateur rounds at the popular Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
According to MX Sports Pro Racing Director, Roy Janson, “The 2018 Pro ATV National Motocross Championship Series again maintained its role as the sport’s premier ATV Motocross Racing program with the series title battle going all the way to the final moto of the tour’s final event, with Chad Wienen claiming his 6th National title by a single point, over current Champion Joel Hetrick. Chad Wienen, and his potent Team Yamaha support base, have dominated the series with 6 titles over the past 7 years.”
Janson further commented, “Joel Hetrick’s 2018 title defense was heroic, winning at 5 series stops, over Wienen’s three event wins, but his overall series effort came up one point short at the series finale, with Chad finishing at 386 points and with Joel, finishing at 385, on his Honda. The close finish of this year’s series leaves both champions committed to resuming their battle for series dominance, when the 2019 championship kicks off at Daytona International Speedway on Tuesday, March 12, 2018.”
The tenth round for the ATVMX Pro class will take place on Friday, August 23, at Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, Indiana. This final round will take place the day before the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. With many of the industry’s heavy hitters being on-site all weekend, the two-moto ATVMX format on Friday provides a great opportunity for exposure.
The ATVMX series has been the home for four-wheeled ATV racing since 1985 and remains America’s premier ATV racing series. The series features the AMA Pro division, supported by 40 amateur classes.
