Yamaha Pro/AM Championships at Glen Helen

Amateur Motocross

The 17th running of the Yamaha California State Pro/AM Championships at Glen Helen Raceway will occur Dec. 12 and 13.

The motorcycle race is a unique, two-day event that combines Grand Prix racing and Motocross.

As the last big amateur event of 2010 at Glen Helen Raceway, motorcycle racers of all ages and skill levels come together to race for the prestigious California State Championship number one plate in their respective classes.

The race is split up into a two-day format. Starting at 8:45 a.m. on Saturday is the first race of the weekend – the Grand Prix race. Held on a specially designed course that takes riders throughout the amazing Glen Helen Raceway facility, the Grand Prix races bring excitement and fun and are always a favorite amongst competitors.

The second part of the Yamaha California State Pro/AM Championships is a traditional motocross race that takes place on Sunday.

Held on Glen Helen’s famed USGP track, the same track that some of the fastest racers in the world compete on, the motocross racing consists of two motos and starts at 9:00AM.

Champions will be decided based on the combined score from both days of racing. The champions in each class will be rewarded with the number one plate, as well as shirts and prizes from Yamaha and other sponsors totaling over $5,000.

From Pee Wee to Senior, there’s a class for everyone. And with pre-entry fees only $60 ($50 for Pee Wee racers) for two days of racing and $20 weekend gate fees for adults/$10 weekend gate fees for children 6-12 years old, Glen Helen Raceway is making it easy to experience great racing and great times.
