All Motorsports Activities Postposed Thru Easter

Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns and in accordance with government recommendations regarding large group gatherings, the Race Leadership Team (RLT) has postponed all motorsports activities thru Easter, April 12, 2020. This affects the following race series: Loretta Lynn Amateur Nationals, GNCC Racing, ATVMX and Pro Motocross.

Accordingly, the following events originally scheduled for April 4/5 are postponed, and every effort will be made to reschedule as soon as possible:

The Steele Creek GNCC in Morgantown, NC, originally scheduled for April 4/5, had previously been postponed.

The Underground ATVMX in Kemp, TX, originally scheduled for March 28/29, has been rescheduled for September 19/20.

As a result of the Pro Motocross schedule change previously announced March 20, the Southeast Youth Regional at WW Ranch in Jacksonville, FL, has been rescheduled for June 20/21.

The RLT consists of representatives from the AMA, MX Sports and MX Sports Pro Racing. The RLT will reconvene next Monday to review the race schedules, making adjustments as needed, and will work with event organizers to reschedule events when possible.

The RLT urges racing families to use common sense: 1) wash your hands often; 2) avoid shaking hands or coming into close personal contact with others; 3) if you are sick, stay home; 4) if you are really sick, go to the hospital; and 5) don’t panic.

The health, safety and welfare of our riders and their families remains paramount, and we will keep our race community apprised of all further developments.
