MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (November 28, 2012) — MX Sports Pro Racing has announced that professional women’s motocross racing will again be featured at the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing. WMX racing will be hosted at three select rounds next summer, with the Hangtown Motocross Classic (Sacramento, Calif.), the High Point National (Mt. Morris, Pa.) and Moto-X 338 National (Southwick, Mass.) selected to compose what will be officially known as the Women’s Pro Motocross Triple Crown.
“The number of 2013 events featuring women’s pro motocross has been reduced from past years due to operational demands associated with both the live events and the television and internet broadcasts for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship,” said Roy Janson, Director of Competition for MX Sports Pro Racing. “This limits the ability to feature women’s pro motocross as often as we did during the 2012 season. Even though there will be fewer events featuring women’s professional motocross racing, MX Sports is pleased to be able to include the competition at these three great venues.”
The Hangtown Motocross Classic, hosted mere minutes from the California State Capitol, serves as the traditional season opening round for Lucas Oil Pro Motocross and will take place on Saturday, May 18, 2013. The season’s East Coast debut at the High Point National will follow three weeks later on June 8, 2013, with the third and final leg of the Women’s Pro Motocross Triple Crown set to take place on June 29 in the sand at the Moto-X 338 National.
In addition to providing competitive opportunities for pro women riders, the AMA and MX Sports, Inc. also continue to offer a line-up of amateur classes for girls 9-11 years of age, 12-15 years of age, as well as a class for all female riders ages 14 and older as part of the annual Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, held at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., from July 29 – August 3, in 2013. The Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship has been crowning Women’s Amateur National Motocross Champions since 1982, the first year of the event.
Entry and race information for the professional women’s class events within the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will be available after January 1, at
