AMA Press Release

The AMA, 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.

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."

The Area Qualifiers determine the fields for the seven Regional Championships that, in turn, qualify riders for the National. The full schedule is below.

"Together with the AMA, MX Sports has selected the nation's premier motocross facilities and organizers to create the best road to Loretta's yet," said MX Sports Event Director Tim Cotter. "With the addition of several new facilities, the 2013 Area Qualifier and Regional Championship schedule will provide great variety and new experiences for our Loretta Lynn's riders and families."

The Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship includes classes for riders from 4 years old to 50-plus on a range of motorcycles, including 50cc minibikes to state-of-the-art highly modified 450cc motocross machines.

The Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, produced by MX Sports, is the premier amateur motocross event in the country. Nearly every professional racer competing in the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship earned his way to the pro ranks through the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at the Loretta Lynn Ranch.
