Clarification of Requirement for Moto Finish 

In order to clarify the requirement with regard to advancement to the Regional level, Rule F.1 of the 2017 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship Supplemental Rules is amended as follows:

F.1. At the Area Qualifier level, riders must receive a numeric Finish position in at least one moto in order to advance to the Regional level. In order to receive a numeric Finish position in a moto, a rider must complete at least one-half the laps of the leader and take the checkered flag. At the Area Qualifier and Regional level, a rider who fails to complete at least one full lap will receive a “DNS” (Did Not Start). At the National, a rider who fails to report to staging will receive a “DNS” (Did Not Start). A DNS results in moto points equal to the total number of riders in the class, plus 30 points. In all other instances, the rider will be considered a “DNF” (Did Not Finish). A DNF results in moto points equal to the total number of riders in the class, but never less than 20. (5.10.2017)
