"The nation's top amateur motocross talent is set to do battle for a chance to become an AMA National Champion," AMA Motocross Manager Alex Hunter said. "AMA Regional Qualifiers feature some of the most intense motocross racing on Earth, as riders vie for a chance to live their dream of racing at Loretta Lynn's Ranch in July."

Competitors advanced to one or more of the 13 AMA Regional Championships based on their performance in the 55 Area Qualifier events, which kicked off Feb. 9 and conclude May 26.

"The Road to Loretta's heats up starting this weekend, as Regional Championships begin with the Northeast and South Central Regions at High Point Raceway and Farm 14," said MX Sports Director Tim Cotter. "This is often the largest race of the year for most racers as only a small percentage get to punch their ticket to the big dance. Good luck to all the riders in their quest for a spot at the 2019 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship."
