2010 AMA Arenacross Series schedule

Feld Motor Sports announced today the 12-stops on the 2010 AMA Arenacross Series schedule that will crown a champion at the Denver Coliseum in Denver, Colo. on March 27.

The season’s prequel race will take place at the Des Moines’ Wells-Fargo Arena (non-points paying), foreshadowing the highly anticipated season and giving the sport’s top racers an opportunity to compete on an official AMA Arenacross Series track. The first points-paying race of the 2010 championship is January 8 at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The AMA Arenacross Series will travel to six new cities in 2010, each of which have previously hosted AMA Arenacross Series races in the past including Hampton, Va. (January 22-24), Kansas City, Kan. (January 30-31), Youngstown, Ohio (February 12-14), Council Bluffs, Iowa (March 12-14) and Denver (March 26-28).

"This season is building up to be another great year of racing with many of the greatest AMA Arenacross Series racers returning to fight for the title," said Jayme Dalsing, director of Arenacross, Feld Motor Sports. "We have a solid schedule this year, and there will not be any breaks once the season starts in January. It is going to be a test for our top riders to come out strong and never let up."

Reigning AMA Arenacross Series champion Jeff Gibson, of Westerville, Ohio, will defend his championship in 2010 against the world’s top competitors on the intimate AMA Arenacross Series circuit. Gibson was the picture of consistency throughout the entire 2009 season, finishing inside the top 10 all but once throughout the 12-race season. He kicked-off the year with seven consecutive podium finishes, including two victories in that stretch and continued his impressive run by garnering four additional wins. Once he moved into the points lead, Gibson never relinquished his hold atop the standings. The championship also marked the third straight title for the Tuf Honda team, featuring three different riders during that span.

"It’s going to be different this year with the number one plate on my bike, it hasn’t quite hit me yet," said Gibson. "When I hit the track, that’s when the reality of being the defending champ will sink in, and racing in front of new crowds at new venues is going to make for an exciting 2010 AMA Arenacross Series. Defending my title is going to be tough as the top racers in the world will be gunning for my number-one plate."
