All Motorsports Activities Postponed Thru May 9/10

Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns and in accordance with government recommendations regarding large group gatherings, the Race Leadership Team (RLT) has postponed all motorsports activities thru May 9/10, 2020. This decision affects the following race series: AMA Loretta Lynn Amateur Motocross.

Accordingly, the following events originally scheduled for the weekend of May 9/10 are postponed, and every effort will be made to reschedule as soon as possible:

May 9/10

The Area Qualifier and Regional race schedules are complicated and have been drastically altered by the national crisis. MX Sports recently released a “State of the Sport” video address explaining the various schedule options, including a condensed Area Qualifier schedule for May and Regional schedule for June (Plan B), a Super Regional schedule for June/July (Plan C) and a 2-week National-only program in July/August (Plan D). A final decision on the program chosen will be announced as soon as possible.

GNCC:

The Snowshoe GNCC, previously scheduled for June 27/28 has been postponed to September 26/27. This date was previously set for the Tomahawk GNCC in NY. In addition, GNCC University scheduled for June 24/25 has been postponed. To accommodate the request, the Tomahawk will be rescheduled and the new date announced as soon as possible. 

If you currently have a reservation for the Snowshoe GNCC, please know that you will have the opportunity to re-book very soon. Snowshoe is working diligently to prepare for re-bookings, and we will provide an update once they are ready to take your calls.

The remainder of the current GNCC schedule consists of 10 events on the following dates:

As a reminder, the schedule remains dynamic and is subject to change. As the crisis affects different parts of the country differently, it is reasonable to expect recovery plans to differ from state to state as well. Most likely some areas of the country will recover quicker than others, and it may be necessary to change locations (but not dates) to accommodate the recovery. Accordingly, a final schedule with final locations will be issued as soon as it is feasible to do so.

About the Race Leadership Team:

The RLT consists of representatives from the AMA, MX Sports and MX Sports Pro Racing. The RLT will reconvene next Monday to review race schedules, making adjustments as needed, and will work with event organizers to reschedule events when possible.

The RLT continues to urge racing families to use common sense: 1) wash your hands often; 2) avoid shaking hands or coming into close personal contact with others; 3) cough into your elbow; 4) if you are sick, stay home; 5) if you are really sick, go to the hospital; and 6) don’t panic.

The health, safety and welfare of our riders and their families remains paramount, and we will keep our race community apprised of all further developments.
