2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Schedule
The 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship scheduled was released Friday, the outdoor MX series again featuring each of the 12 rounds (24 motos) on the 2016 schedule.
The season gets underway Saturday, May 20, with the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Rancho Cordova, Cali., and concludes with the Ironman National at Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, Indiana. Throughout the 12-race series, MX will visit all four USA time zones and compete in 11 states.
Once again, NBC, NBCSN, MAVTV and the NBC Sports App will provide exclusive broadcast coverage of both the 450 and 250 moto classes.
The Pro Motocross Championship began in 1972, and has continually challenged riders through to the 2016 title winners of Suzuki’s Ken Roczen (RM-Z450) in the 450 class, and Yamaha’s Cooper Webb (YZ250F) in the 250 class.
“The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is the root of American motocross and its legacy is undeniable. Both the teams and riders understand the history of the sport and how truly difficult it is to win this coveted championship, so there’s an immense sense of pride in the battle for both the Edison Dye Cup and Gary Jones Cup,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing.
“Most of the tracks on the schedule have been hosting Nationals for more than two decades. There’s such a rich history and tradition that both the riders and the fans feed off of, making this championship a truly special experience.”
