Rounds added to AMA Racing Dirt Track Series

AMA members who will be competing for national No. 1 plates at this summer’s AMA Racing Dirt Track Grand Championships, set for June 27-July 4 in Du Quoin, Ill., now have three more opportunities to get a head start on the competition.                                                                                                                        

AMA Racing has added three rounds to the AMA Racing Dirt Track Grand Championships Holeshot Series, which awards bonus points for the national titles up for grabs at Du Quoin. The new events are in Brownstown, Ill.; Salinas, Calif.; and Sturgis, S.D. In addition, the event that rained out April 18-19 in Little Rock, Ark., has been rescheduled for May 2-3. The remaining schedule for the Holeshot Series is listed below.

Riders who compete in all races in their class at an AMA Racing Dirt Track Grand Championships Holeshot Series event earn five bonus points toward that class’ national title.

"By adding these premier racing venues, the AMA Racing Dirt Track Grand Championships Holeshot Series truly has national appeal," said Ken Saillant, track racing manager for AMA Racing. "Offering this opportunity to even more racers allows competitors from coast to coast to start chasing their national championship aspirations early. We now have an impressive schedule of events that includes racing in short track, TT and half-mile disciplines."

To count toward a racer’s Grand Championships point total, the bonus points must be earned in the same class contested at the Grand Championships, where a rider can compete in up to three classes. A racer who competes in all of the races for his or her class at a Holeshot Series event will earn five bonus points toward that class championship regardless of finishing order. Full details of the Holeshot series bonus point program are available in the AMA Racing Dirt Track Grand Championships Supplemental Regulations.
