KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The penultimate round of the 2013 season for AMSOIL Arenacross, featuring Ricky Carmichael’s Road to Supercross, also signified the third round of the inaugural Race to the Championship on Saturday night. Kansas City’s Sprint Center was the site of an incredible night of action in which Babbitt’s Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki presented by Maxxis rider Tyler Bowers raced to his 10th overall victory of the season with a sweep of the night’s Arenacross Class Main Events. In the Arenacross Lites Class, Letko KTM’s Tanner Moore, who hails from nearby Auburn, Kan., broke through to capture his first win of the season in front of the hometown crowd.

In the evening’s opening Main Event for the Arenacross Class, it was Team Faith/FLY Racing KTM’s Kelly Smith who grabbed the holeshot and the early lead, closely followed by Bowers, Babbitt’s Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki’s Zach Ames, and Team Faith/FLY Racing KTM’s Jeff Gibson. Prior to the conclusion of the opening lap, Bowers passed Smith for the lead and asserted himself at the front of the field. Just a few laps later, both Ames and Gibson made their move on Smith as well, dropping the KTM rider to fourth.

Morgantown, W.Va. (February 2, 2012) – MX Sports announces today Kawasaki’s involvement in the 3rd Annual Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross Championship on Sunday, March 11 and Monday, March 12, 2012, at Daytona International Speedway. Kawasaki is offering over $5,000 in Kawasaki Rewards Contingency to amateur racers competing in the amateur supercross.

This year’s event has expanded to two full days of amateur racing, featuring longer races and practices, with more class options to give racers even more track-time over the course of the weekend. Following a night of watching the fastest pro racers in the country battle it out on the Daytona Supercross track, the amateur-racing schedule kicks off Sunday morning. Practice starts at 7:30 a.m., followed by heat races and last chance qualifiers. Monday’s schedule consists of the remaining LCQ’s and all thirty Main Event races.

“Kawasaki is pleased to once again be a part of the Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross,” said Team Green MX Supervisor, Ryan Holliday. “Kawasaki has been a part of the amateur racing scene for over thirty years now and we’re excited to continue supporting this event with our Kawasaki Rewards Contingency Program.”

MX Sports organizes the event by utilizing over 30 years of experience operating the Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch. The class structure includes classes for youth riders on 50cc bikes all the way up to vet and senior classes. The race will follow a supercross format, using heat races and last chance qualifiers to seed the field of riders into a main event in each class, over the course of two days. Unlike the Loretta Lynn Ranch format, riders do not need to qualify at other races in order to participate in the Daytona event.
