Morgantown, W. Va. — MX Sports, producer of the 2012 Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by Amsoil, announces today the Class Structure and Supplemental Rules for the 2012 National Championship, taking place July 29 – August 4 at Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

The class structure has undergone minor changes in both the youth and amateur categories. Highlights include the addition of the Two-Stroke (16+) class to the amateur lineup, providing two-stroke enthusiasts a chance to compete on equal footing in a class designed for adult-aged riders-with no A, B or C class specification.

“MX Sports realizes that there’s still a large following of two-strokes in the motocross community, which is why we have added the Two-Stroke (16+) class,” said Tim Cotter, Director of MX Sports. “Since the class is open to any riding level, we think we will see a considerable amount of participants who simply enjoy racing two-strokes jump on the opportunity to compete against one another on a level playing field.”

The addition of the Mini Sr. (12-14) Stock and Mini Sr. (12-14) Modified classes will pit 85cc two-stroke motorcycles against 150cc four-stroke machines for the first time in Loretta Lynn MX history.

“The newly added Mini Sr. classes reflect the ongoing evolution of machines and we feel that the new class structure will maintain fair and balanced racing across the board,” said Cotter.

Another change comes in the machine eligibility for the 51cc (4-6) Stock Limited class. The 2012 Supplemental Rules provide a complete list of machines that are eligible for the new Limited class.

Morgantown, W.Va. - MX Sports is proud to welcome Red Bull Energy Drink as the title sponsor of the 2011 Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch-the world’s largest and most prestigious amateur motocross race.

The Loretta Lynn’s race, which was founded in 1982 at the home of country music icon Loretta Lynn, will celebrate its 30th Anniversary this summer. As the most prestigious amateur motocross race in the world, Loretta Lynn’s serves as the last step in the graduation of young athletes to the professional ranks of AMA Motocross and Supercross.

A premier sponsor of the Loretta Lynn’s event for many years, Red Bull has produced a variety of spectacular activations during the weeklong AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, from skydivers and trials demos, to freestyle motocross and movie night in the town square. Red Bull is now taking its support of amateur motocross to the next level by assuming the heightened role as title sponsor of the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship. Motocross is a large part of Red Bull’s presence in the world of action sports, both as an elite sponsor and energy drink choice at the races.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Red Bull as not only the title sponsor of the 2011 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, but for many years to come,” said Tim Cotter, Director of MX Sports. “We’ve had a longstanding relationship with Red Bull and this new partnership will be very beneficial to our athletes and their families. Red Bull’s media assets are remarkably powerful and this type of media exposure will elevate amateur motocross to the next level.”

“Many of our participants have already seen Red Bull’s growing presence at this year’s Regional Championships,” added Cotter. “There are many major enhancements planned for this year’s National at Loretta Lynn’s and you will see more activation beginning with the Area Qualifiers in 2012.”

The Red Bull Media House is an Emmy Award-winning global media company that develops and distributes lifestyle, culture and sports programming that speaks to the coveted and elusive male demographic. Red Bull Media House will produce “The Road to Loretta’s” television program, which highlights the real-life journey of many amateur racers and their families as they work through the highly-competitive qualifying process for the Red Bull AMA Amateur National, and their run for a championship title at Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. The Road to Loretta’s, as well as a post-event program, will air on VERSUS Network September 11 and 18 at 5:30 p.m. EST.

As part of its full commitment to the sport, Red Bull also backs a talented group of amateur racers through its JAMS program, as well as a wide array of professionals who have tasted success at the ranch.

“Loretta Lynn’s will always be a special place to me from my amateur career,” said multi-time AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross Champion James Stewart, a nine-time Loretta Lynn’s winner. “I’m excited to see Red Bull, one of my longtime sponsors, partner with MX Sports. I know how much Red Bull supports motocross and this already great event will definitely benefit from their involvement.”

The National Final will be held August 1-6 at the home of country music legend Loretta Lynn in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. In 2011, thirty-five champions will be crowned at what marks the 30th Anniversary celebration of the greatest motocross vacation in the world – the Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship.
