PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to recognize two premier motocross events in the state of Texas this fall. Both the AMA Texas State Championship, which will be held Nov. 5-6 at the Freestone County Raceway in Wortham, Texas, and the AMA District 20/41/42 Final, scheduled for Oct. 29-30 at 3 Palms Extreme Sports Park in Conroe, Texas, will offer AMA racers excellent tracks and top competition from all across the Lone Star State.
“Motocross racers in Texas are some of the most dedicated in the country,” said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley. “For these competitors, this fall will prove to be one of the most action-packed in recent memory. This will be a rare opportunity to compete in two premier races back-to-back, taking on some of the region’s best racers. Some serious bragging rights will be earned at both Freestone and Three Palms this fall. I sincerely hope all of our racers support both these events and show the country why Texas is among the nation’s top motocross states.”
The 9th Annual AMA Texas State Championship meet will be held on the world-class Freestone County Raceway in the epicenter of the state. The championship race is located on the same track that has hosted rounds of the AMA Pro Racing National Motocross Championship. Freestone is recognized as one of the top motocross tracks in the country. The AMA Texas State Championship at Freestone is a winner-take-all weekend and does not require qualifiers.
