AMA National Enduro Championship Series
Although the AMA has recognized national enduro champions since the association's founding in 1924, the modern era of enduro competition began with a 1961 meeting of the AMA Board of Directors. That's when the AMA Board created the AMA Grand National Enduro Championship Series, which would crown a single enduro champion based on points earned in all of the country's top national events.
Prior to the 1962 season, the AMA recognized several champions from individual contests of varying lengths. There was a 125-mile champion, a 200-mile champion, a 250-mile champion, etc.
In 1962, the first AMA Grand National Enduro Champion was crowned. This was the rider who scored the most points in six of the country's top enduros. AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Bill Baird from Sterling, Ill., won the first AMA Grand National Enduro title and did so for the next six years. Baird's seven consecutive AMA Grand National Enduro Championships make him one of the sport's most successful champions.
Now known as the AMA National Enduro Championship, the series remains the country's premier off-road championship. Promoted by the AMA's promoting partner for the series, the National Enduro Promotions Group, the series continues to attract riders of all skill levels, chasing AMA National No. 1 plates.
