AMA Pro-Am Motocross


AMA Pro-Am Motocross events are open to both professionally licensed and A-class amateur motocross racers. These events allow amateurs to gain experience on America's top motocross tracks and prepare for the fast pace and long motos that professional racing demands.

AMA Pro-Am Motocross events are one of the paths to a professional license. To be considered for a professional motocross license, competitors must have met the point criteria set by AMA Pro Racing/MX Sports (at the time of application) in AMA Pro-Am Motocross events in a continuous 18-month period. Points are based on overall finishes in either the 250 Pro-Am, 450 Pro-Am and Open Pro Sport Pro-Am classes. 

For more information about AMA Pro-Am Motocross events, contact the AMA at mxracing@ama-cycle.org.

Points must be earned in classes (250 Pro-Am: 122cc-250cc; 450 Pro-Am: 122cc-Open; Open Pro-Sport Pro-Am: 122cc-Open). Points can be accumulated in any Pro-Am MX events in any region. Pro-Am points are not transferable between classes. A rider must earn 60 Pro-Am points in one of the three Pro-Am classes within an 18-month period (example, March 2016 to August 2017).

At Pro-Am events where Limited and Modified classes are offered, points will be awarded in the modified classes only.

Pro-Am Motocross points cannot be combined with points earned in the AMA Arenacross Series.

For information on professional Motocross licensing eligibility, procedures and applications, see www.amaproracing.com.

Points are awarded based on overall finish according to the points scale shown above.
