Las Vegas Amateur Arenacross Lineup


2011 Arenacross

With the conclusion of a great AMA Arenacross Series season of competition in Des Moines, Iowa, that saw Kawasaki’s Tyler Bowers take the title, the 2011 Amateur National Arenacross Championship (ANAC) lineup was finalized with the qualification of 120 riders across 24 classes representing the North Region.

The ANAC is a renowned competition that annually pits the fastest amateurs from across the country in a day-long showdown from which 23 AMA National Champions will be crowned.

Jayme Dalsing (AMA Arenacross Series Director) says: “We have an extremely talented field of riders slated for this year’s ANAC. Each year this is one of the most anticipated races of the entire season of competition and I think it’s going to be a year to remember in 2011.”

The gates will drop on the 2011 ANAC on May 8 from South Point Hotel, Casino, & Spa in Las Vegas, just one day following the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, finale from Sam Boyd Stadium. This year marks the ANAC debut from the state-of-the-art South Point Arena.
