AMA Press Releases

American Motorcyclist Association announces seven AMA Extreme Off-Road State Championships for 2019

Four events added to qualifier system for AMA Extreme Off-Road Grand Championship/Kenda AMA Tennessee Knockout

AMA Press Release

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The 2019 AMA Extreme Off-Road State Championship schedule features seven events that will crown the top riders in Extreme Off-Road in the state, while also qualifying riders for the 2019 AMA Extreme Off-Road Grand Championship.

AMA Extreme Off-Road State Championships were introduced in 2018 and provide the most intense state-level extreme off-road competition. They also serve as a qualifying system for the nation's premier amateur extreme off-road championship event, which is also known as the Kenda AMA Tennessee Knockout Extreme Enduro.

In 2019, four new state championship events offer riders more opportunities to be crowned an AMA State Champion, as well as qualify for the AMA Extreme Off-Road Grand Championship.

"In 2018, we debuted the Extreme Off-Road State Championship system, and it was a huge success," AMA Off-Road Racing Manager Erek Kudla said. "The AMA spent three years developing the state championship system, and it proved to be tremendously popular with extreme off-road riders throughout the nation."

The four new state championship events are the EnduroFest at Wild West Motorsports Park in Sparks, Nev.; the Stix & Stones Xtreme at Silver Mountain in Kellogg, Idaho; the Bad Medicine at Fallen Timbers event at Wildwood Lake Raceway in Little Hocking, Ohio; and the Battle of the Goats at Brushy Mountain Motorsports Park in Taylorsville, N.C.

State championships returning for a second year in 2019 are the RevLimiter Extreme Enduro at Rocky Ridge Ranch in Decatur, Texas; the Last Dog Standing at Glen Helen Raceway Devore, Calif.; and the Tough Like RORR hosted by the Reading Off-Road Riders in Tamaqua, Pa.

The class winners at each state-level event will be recognized as AMA Extreme Off-Road State Champions, and the top three riders at each event advance to the pro race at the 2019 AMA Extreme Off-Road Grand Championship. The next 10 riders in the standings advance to the grand championship event's amateur race and compete for an AMA Extreme Off-Road National Championship.
