We adhere to strict safety rules. There is to be NO JUMPING on a yellow flag situation. If a rider jumps while a yellow flag is present, you risk receiving a DQ for that Moto.
#1 Plates are not awarded to each skill level. Series trophies will be presented to the top 1st – 3rd finishers in each ability level. All Expert, Amateur and Novice skill level riders are eligible to win a #1 series plate if they win their respective division. Example; an Amateur level rider may win the open division on points because the next closest expert may not have raced 4 rounds or scored enough points to earn the most points in that division. This is also another reason to race all rounds in the series because every rounds score is counted towards the championship in your class & division unless we have a drop round.
AMA Amateur Rulebook to be followed and AMA membership is required.
Points will be earned based on the points chart. For the Winter Series in 2022/2023 ALL 5 rounds will count toward series championship.

You must run the SAME number you start the series with on three sides of your bike during the entire series for series points & awards. If your bike breaks down and you are changing bikes, YOUR ORIGINAL BIKE NUMBER MUST BE AFFIXED TO THE REPLACEMENT BIKE. It is also imparitive that you notify scoring of the change in bikes.
