Carmichael Amateur Supercross Race Entry

2011 Daytona Supercross

Race entries are now on sale for the second-annual Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross Championship, which takes place on Sunday, March 6, at the Daytona International Speedway, following the Daytona Pro Supercross event.

On Monday, March 7, Carmichael will host Ricky Carmichael University, with riding instruction from the 15-Time AMA National Champion and friends.

"We were thrilled to hold an amateur race on the storied grounds of Daytona last year, and we’re going to make this year’s event even better," says Tim Cotter, director of MX Sports.

"We learned a lot at the first annual event, and we’re excited to put those lessons to work and help this event grow. With big thanks to Ricky, his family and friends, we believe this event is about to become a mainstay on the amateur circuit."

Sunday’s race allows the top amateur riders in the world to race on the coveted Daytona Supercross track. After filling every gate position last year, this year’s event expands to run under the lights into Sunday evening, allowing more classes, more laps and more riders.

MX Sports organizes the event by utilizing nearly 30 years of experience operating the AMA Amateur Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch. The RCAMSX class structure includes classes for youth riders on 50cc bikes all the way up to vet and senior classes.

The race will follow a supercross format, using heat races and last chance qualifiers to seed the field of riders into a main event in each class. Unlike the Loretta Lynn Ranch format, riders do not need to qualify at other races in order to participate in the Daytona event.

Monday’s Ricky Carmichael University marks the only U.S. riding school opportunity with the 15-time AMA National Champion. RC and his team will share exclusive riding secrets during a one-day-only Supercross camp on the Daytona track, with breakfast, lunch, instruction and plenty of riding included.

Amateur riders and their families are encouraged to come down early and camp on the Daytona infield, where hookups are available. Move in, sign-up and camping begins on Saturday, March 5, so amateur families can watch the pros compete on Saturday night in the Daytona Supercross.

Amateur racing takes place on Sunday, March 6, with Ricky Carmichael University commencing on Monday, March 7.

Entry is $140 for the first class and $80 dollars for additional classes. Race entry also includes a free ticket to Saturday night’s pro Daytona Supercross, a pit pass and seating on the infield side of the track, as well as your amateur supercross ticket (all totaled, a $70 dollar value).

Racer family members can also purchase seating and pit passes for Saturday night’s pro race, all by clicking on the pre-entry link.
