MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – MX Sports Pro Racing and the National Promoter’s Group would like to congratulate Kevin Windham on his decision to retire from an illustrious career in professional racing. Windham, a longtime competitor in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, announced his retirement during opening ceremonies of the Anaheim Supercross on Saturday night at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. The GEICO Honda rider made the decision to call time on his career after meeting with family, friends and his team.

“Without a doubt Kevin Windham will be remembered as one of the most popular athletes the sport has ever known,” said MX Sports Pro Racing President, Davey Coombs. “He was not only an exceptional rider, but a great role model who was always generous with his time and the fans. He has provided countless great races and memories, as well as nearly forty career wins. By any measure, he was one of American motocross racing’s greatest heroes. We truly appreciate his efforts, both on the race track as a competitor and off the track as a wonderful ambassador for the sport.”

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association is elevating one of its most-successful and popular off-road amateur racing events to national championship status. Starting in 2013, the AMA Kenda Big Sky Amateur National Off-Road Championship, presented by KLIM, will crown amateur national off-road racing champions in a wide range of classes on Aug. 24-25 at Montana’s Big Sky Resort.

“In much the same way the AMA Dirt Track Grand Championships and the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch award national titles in those disciplines, the AMA Kenda Big Sky Amateur National Off-Road Championship, presented by KLIM, will recognize the best amateur off-road riders in the country,” said AMA Off-Road Racing Manager Chuck Weir. “Riders will come from a range of backgrounds — enduro, hare scrambles, EnduroCross, cross country and desert racing — to battle for bragging rights on the national stage.”

The first-place finishers in every class will receive an AMA national No. 1 plate, and the top-three riders in each class will be invited to the annual AMA Championship Banquet. Classes will be run across a range of skill-, age- and motorcycle-based categories.

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.”

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association, in partnership with MX Sports, is pleased to announce the 2013 Area Qualifier and Regional Championship schedule that will be the first steps to the Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at the Loretta Lynn Ranch on July 28-Aug. 3 in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

“It’s every amateur motocross racer’s dream to win an AMA national No. 1 plate at Loretta Lynn’s,” said AMA Motocross Manager Kip Bigelow. “Whether you are a returning superstar or a first-time racer, the dream is rooted in success in the area qualifier program. We’re excited to once again work with MX Sports to present one of 2013′s most-anticipated schedules.”

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — As many as 10 national motocross champions were able to take home the prestigious AMA national No. 1 plate this month thanks to the defeat one year ago of the “lead law” that banned the sale of kid’s dirtbikes, the American Motorcyclist Association reports.

The 10 young riders under the age of 12 earned their awards at the 2012 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships held July 30 to Aug. 4 at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

Cobra Motorcycles, which makes kids’ competition motocross machines, saw a lot of that success. Cobra President Sean Hilbert said that his riders’ titles wouldn’t have happened without the defeat of the lead law.

Hurricane Mills, Tenn. – As the penultimate day of racing comes to a close in the 2012 Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by Amsoil, 24 National Champions were crowned and several others received top honors in their respective classes. In addition to leaving the Loretta Lynn Ranch with a coveted National Championship, riders who topped their class also went home with a Specialized p.series bike, and of course, the Red Bull Sword championship trophy.

Almost all of the day’s race action was noteworthy for one reason or another, but arguably the best racing of the day came from Yamaha’s Cooper Webb and Honda’s Shane Mcelrath in the 250 B Stock final. Heading into Moto 3 the two riders were tied with one race-win apiece, and after a hard fought battle to the end, it was North Carolina’s Webb who claimed the class championship over a very tenacious Mcelrath. Both riders have a shot at winning another title tomorrow in the second half of the moto finales.

With a heavy lineup of front-runners in the Junior 25+ class, the final moto was highly anticipated and spectators from all ends of the ranch lined the fences to watch The-Greatest-of-All-Time Ricky Carmichael grab his tenth Amateur National Championship title. It wasn’t without a little bit of pressure by 8-Time Amateur National Champion Robbie Reynard, who clinched the eighth title in the Vet 35+ class earlier in the day. Reynard caught and passed Carmichael on the opening lap of the 25+ Moto 3, where he led the G.O.A.T for a couple laps before fading back a bit, ultimately finishing eight seconds behind for second. Mike Sleeter put in a notable ride to finish third in the race and fourth overall, just behind Andrew Matusek in third.
