Ricky Carmichael, one of the greatest American motorcycle racers of all time, will bring his unique blend of stadium-style motocross to the hallowed grounds of the Daytona International Speedway on Sunday and Monday, March 11-12, at the Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross Championship.

Sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), and in partnership with MX Sports, the third annual event features two days of amateur racing at the same track that will showcase the best AMA Supercross racers in the world at the March 10 Daytona Supercross by Honda, which is the 10th round of the 2012 AMA Supercross Championship.

Joe Bromley (AMA Director of Racing) says: “The Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross Championship allows amateur motocross racers to experience one of America’s historic racing venues first hand.

“The event includes classes for all displacement, age and skill levels. Thanks to the new two-day format, it includes longer motos, expanded practice times and more opportunities to ride what will be one of the most-fun tracks many riders will see all year.”

Classes are available for youth riders on 50cc bikes all the way up to vet and senior classes. The race will follow a qualifying format with heat races and last-chance qualifiers seeding the main event in each class.

Amateur racers are encouraged to arrive early and camp on the Daytona infield. Hookups are also available. Move in, sign-up and camping begin on Saturday, March 10, so that amateur families can watch the pros compete Saturday night in the Daytona Supercross by Honda. Amateur racing takes place on Sunday, March 11, and Monday, March 12.
