2019 AMA Extreme Off-Road State Championships

The 2019 AMA Extreme Off-Road State Championship schedule features seven events that will crown the top riders in Extreme Off-Road in the state, while also qualifying riders for the 2019 AMA Extreme Off-Road Grand Championship.

AMA Extreme Off-Road State Championships were introduced in 2018 and provide the most intense state-level extreme off-road competition. They also serve as a qualifying system for the nation’s premier amateur extreme off-road championship event, which is also known as the Kenda AMA Tennessee Knockout Extreme Enduro.

2019 AMA Extreme Off-Road State Championships | 7 Rounds AnnouncedIn 2019, four new state championship events offer riders more opportunities to be crowned an AMA State Champion, as well as qualify for the AMA Extreme Off-Road Grand Championship.

“In 2018, we debuted the Extreme Off-Road State Championship system, and it was a huge success,” says AMA Off-Road Racing Manager Erek Kudla. “The AMA spent three years developing the state championship system, and it proved to be tremendously popular with extreme off-road riders throughout the nation.”

The four new state championship events are the EnduroFest at Wild West Motorsports Park in Sparks, Nev.; the Stix & Stones Xtreme at Silver Mountain in Kellogg, Idaho; the Bad Medicine at Fallen Timbers event at Wildwood Lake Raceway in Little Hocking, Ohio; and the Battle of the Goats at Brushy Mountain Motorsports Park in Taylorsville, N.C.

State championships returning for a second year in 2019 are the RevLimiter Extreme Enduro at Rocky Ridge Ranch in Decatur, Texas; the Last Dog Standing at Glen Helen Raceway Devore, Calif.; and the Tough Like RORR hosted by the Reading Off-Road Riders in Tamaqua, Pa.

The class winners at each state-level event will be recognized as AMA Extreme Off-Road State Champions, and the top three riders at each event advance to the pro race at the 2019 AMA Extreme Off-Road Grand Championship. The next 10 riders in the standings advance to the grand championship event’s amateur race and compete for an AMA Extreme Off-Road National Championship.
