HURRICANE MILLS, Tenn. (August 6, 2019) – After a week of world-class amateur motocross racing, 108 motos at the 38th Annual Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by Lucas Oil, concluded on Saturday, August 3, in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee at the historic Loretta Lynn Ranch. Thirty-six new National Championships were crowned, along with several athletes being presented AMA specialty awards. 

Husqvarna’s Jalek Swoll, who earned the Open Pro Sport National Championship after going 1-3-1, captured the coveted Nicky Hayden AMA Motocross Horizon Award. This award is given to the A-class rider who shows the most promise as they prepare to enter the professional ranks.

The AMA Motocross Amateur Rider Award was presented to Yamaha-backed rider, Jarrett Frye. This award is designed to recognize an outstanding non-A-class rider who is ready to make an immediate impact in the A-class competition. Frye earned the honors with his National Championship in the Schoolboy 2 (12-17) B/C class and 3-3-1 finishes in the 250 B class. 

Michael Brown, Maxiums Vohland, Jarrett Frye earned the AMA Rider of the Year Awareds, while Jalek Swoll earned the Nicky Hayden AMA Motocross Horizon Award.

The AMA Motocross Youth Rider Award is designated for a rider under the age of 16 chosen for his or her performance in the Youth classes at the AMA Amateur National. This year, KTM Orange Brigade’s Maximus Vohland earned the notable award after clinching the Supermini 1 (12-15) and Supermini 2 (13-16) titles.

The AMA Motocross Vet Rider Award is given to an outstanding rider over the age of 30. Results from all Vet classes are taken into consideration when selecting a winner. This year, Michael Brown proved that he was once again a front-runner by earning five of six-moto wins in the Junior (25+) and Senior (40+) classes.
