2007 AMA PRO/AM MOTOCROSS SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (Jan. 16, 2007) -- AMA Racing has announced the 2007 AMA Pro/Am Motocross Schedule. Reflecting AMA Racing's ongoing effort to improve rider transition from amateur to professional competition, Pro/Am motocross events will provide "A" class amateur riders the opportunity to earn points towards their AMA Professional Motocross license and AMA Supercross Lites endorsement.

In addition to the Toyota AMA Arenacross Series and the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships at Loretta Lynn's, AMA Pro/Am motocross events will give riders the opportunity to earn points on a year-round basis and in racing environments that they feel the most comfortable.

"We're very excited to have what we feel is a fair qualification system in which amateur riders earn the right to compete at the professional level of AMA Supercross and Motocross", said AMA Racing's Amateur Motocross Manager Ryan Holliday.

As a bonus to the AMA Pro/Am motocross program, select races will award riders "double points" due to the highly competitive and prestigious nature of these events.

AMA Racing will continue to organize the Fall-based Eastern Pro/Am Championship Series, formerly known as the AMA Four-Stroke Nationals and Thundercross Series. The 2007 series features new venues including Pleasure Valley Raceway, Armaugh, Penn., Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Baja Acres in Millington, Mich., and Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J.
