American Motorcyclist Association announces 2019 AMA Supermoto National Championship Series schedule

Season kicks off April 6-7 in Nevada

AMA Press Release

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The 2019 AMA Supermoto National Championship Series schedule features two new venues to start the season.

The series, sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association, will kick off 2019 at a new event in Primm, Nev., on April 6-7, followed by another new event in Grand Junction, Colo., on May 18-19. The remainder of the schedule includes four returning events at venues in the United States and Canada.

The Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada, is sanctioned by the Canadian Motorcycle Association. That round, coupled with the event in Sturgis, S.D., determines the FIM North America Supermoto Championship.

"The AMA Supermoto National Championship Series represents the pinnacle of the sport in the United States," AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant said. "It is a sport that borrows elements from multiple disciplines to challenge riders, and we are looking forward to another season of intense competition."

Supermoto racing includes a mix of street-style racing and motocross. Riders compete on tracks that feature dirt and pavement sections with jumps and turns. Venues can range from football stadiums to closed-course streets or parking lots.

The AMA Supermoto National Championship Series is promoted by DRT Racing.

"We are excited to announce the 2019 AMA Supermoto National Championship Series schedule, especially the Anthony Hart Memorial Race as our season opener," DRT Racing President Alex Mock said. "In addition to the new venues we've added to the schedule, we've also secured manufacturer contingency programs for the teams and privateers, and select rounds will also feature a learn to ride program for new riders of all ages."
