Loretta Lynn A+ Honor Roll Program Returns
With the 36th Annual Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross National Championship, presented by Lucas Oil, just around the corner, MX Sports is pleased to announce the return of the Loretta Lynn A+ Honor Roll Program. The world’s largest amateur motocross race is set to take place July 31 through August 5 at the renowned Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
MX Sports recognizes that it is not only important to excel on the track, but also in academics. The Loretta Lynn A+ Honor Roll Program will return in 2017 marking its 15th consecutive year and recognizes riders with a “B” or better grade point average by inducting them into the Loretta Lynn Honor Roll. Inducted racers will receive “A+” stickers to display on all three number plates during race week to showcase their accomplishments.
For the fourth year, pre-registration is now available on the Loretta Lynn A+ Honor Roll Program webpage. By following this link, the required information can be filled out along with an uploaded image of the report card. Racers can still bring their report cards to rider registration at the Ranch, but registering online allows for a faster process once you get to rider registration.
The 2017 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, presented by Lucas Oil, kicks off in just under three weeks on Monday, July 31, in Hurricane Mills Tennessee.
