Morgantown, W.Va. (January 17, 2011)
- The ATVPG, administrator of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship, have announced the Weekend Schedule and Classes for the 2011 season. There were minimal modifications to the class structure this year - most of the changes for 2011 took place in the Weekend Schedule.
Highlighted changes in the Weekend Schedule include the Pro Racing show, which will take place on Saturday this year - rather than the previous Sunday layout. As the Pro Racing schedule unfolds on Saturday, both motos of the Pro Am Unlimited and Women's classes will also take place in rotation with the first set of Amateur motos.
Sunday's schedule, then, will round out the second set of Amateur motos and run the entire Pro Am Production racing schedule, as it was the previous year.
"By moving both of the Pro motos to Saturday, we are enhancing our fan experience that has already been enjoyed by fans of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Racing Motocross Championship," said Sam Gammon, Director of ATVPG.
In regards to the 2011 class changes, we have added Girls (8-15) Production class to the Youth list. This addition was set forth to provide young girls a platform where they can gain experience and strive to become part of the premier Women's class.
The 2011 AMA ATV Motocross Championship will kick off February 26-27 at Aonia Pass MX in Washington, Ga., with Pro class racing starting at 1 p.m. Saturday, supported by 37 amateur classes throughout Saturday and Sunday. For more information, please visit www.atvmotocross.com.
