Loretta Lynn's NE Amateur Regional

June 18-20, 2021

NEW FOR 2021, there are two 2-stroke classes (125cc All Stars and 250cc All Stars) which are not National classes and can be entered by any racer 12 years and older regardless of his/her interest in the qualifier classes. These two classes are open to any racer and are entered on-site.

With the exception of two classes, this event is for those who qualified for the Loretta Lynn’s Northeast AMATEUR Regional. Those trying to qualify for Loretta’s should make sure they have a spot on the starting line by registering by the deadline with MX Sports for this regional.

Optional practice day on Friday for event competitors only. All racing with be on the Unadilla Pro National track.

ARRIVAL INFORMATION

Thursday and Friday we will use Gate S4 as both an entrance and exit. See the click button to the left for a facility map showing the location of Gates S4 and Gates S1/S2.

Saturday and Sunday we will use Gates S1/S2 by the large white barn as the entrance and exit gate.

RACING INFORMATION

RACE / CLASS DETAILS

  • All classes run three motos
  • All motos count towards overall finish
  • All classes race BOTH Saturday and Sunday
  • Racing for all classes begins on Saturday.
  • Top 6 finishers from each National qualifier class advance to the National at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch.
  • All racing will be on the Pro National track
  • There is an optional Friday practice (weather permitting)
  • TRANSPONDER SCORING WILL BE USED
  • Please note new AMA racing rules as of 2017. All racers competing in amateur classes must be 12 years old or older on the date of the event. Racers must be 14 or older to race a 250cc 2-stroke/4-stroke and 16 or older to race a 450cc, including in any youth class.

If there are more than 41 racers per class, then qualifiers will be run. The results of the Qualifiers and the Consi will count as the Moto 1 finish in that class. The number of positions to advance from the Qualifiers to Moto 2 is determined by Loretta Lynn’s rules; the remainder will transfer to a Consi. The finishers of each Qualifier will then receive their corresponding score for Moto 1. Thus, there will be two 1st place finishers, two 2nd, two 3rd, and so on, for Moto 1. The winner of the Consi will get a score of one more than the last rider transferring from the Qualifier. The Qualifier with the fastest time will receive priority gate pick for Moto 2.

REGISTRATION PROCEDURE

TO GUARANTEE YOUR SPOT FOR NATIONAL QUALIFIER CLASSES AT THIS REGIONAL (Classes 1-12), MAKE SURE TO REGISTER WITH MX SPORTS BY THE DEADLINE.

Registration for the 125cc All Star class and/or 250cc All Star class, will be done on-site during registration hours. These two 2-stroke classes are open to all racers 12 and older (125cc) and 14 and older (250cc) regardless of whether the racer is racing in a Regional Qualifier class. No prior qualifiers are needed for these 2 classes only.

All racers must be a member of the AMA. You can join at the track but are highly encouraged to join/renew online prior to arrival as long as you are connected to a printer. Make sure to bring the printout with you.

Racers under the age of 18 in possession of a “Competition Membership” card from the AMA are still expected to have a parent or guardian in attendance. If a parent is not in attendance, then a dated, signed, and notarized permission slip from your parent with the event name, dates, and location is required. The slip MUST be notarized.

MINOR RELEASE FORM

All racers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their parent. If a parent will not be in attendance, then a notarized permission slip is absolutely required. Even if a sibling 18 years or older is the responsible party, a notarized permission slip is still required. THE AMA COMPETITION MEMBERSHIP CARD AND RELEASE WILL NOT OVERRIDE THIS REQUIREMENT. The permission slip must read as follows:

(DATE) I hereby give permission for my (son/daughter), (child’s name) to race in the Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Regional Qualifier at Unadilla MX, New Berlin, NY on June 4-6, 2021. (Name) will be responsible for (him/her) during the event. Signed _______________________________________ Notarized signature and seal A notary public can be found at your bank, local government offices, local public schools, and in many places of business. The permission slip MUST be notarized. We recommend a second notarized slip stating that the responsible party can make medical decisions for the minor should that be necessary.

All non-US citizen racers must have class clearance from the AMA to participate at the Loretta Lynn’s National in Tennessee. We encourage you to contact the AMA Motocross Racing Department at 1-800-AMA-JOIN or mxracing@ama-cycle.org prior to attending any Area Qualifier. You can participate in the Area Qualifier prior to contacting the AMA but this step must be taken prior to the National. You need to make sure you are eligible for the class you are qualifying in so start this process as soon as possible.

NON-REGISTERED QUALIFIED RACERS/ALTER-  NATES

  • Alternates will be placed based on power ranking.
  • Non-registered alternates will be accepted in all classes that do not cause the class to have to run qualifiers. In other words, if a class is pre-registered at 35 racers and all 35 are in attendance, there are 5 spots available for non-registered qualified racers or non-registered alternates.
  • If a class is pre-registered at 41 racers, then the number of available spots will depend upon no-shows. If a class is pre-registered with more than 41 racers, then up to 80 racers can be initially placed in the class.
  • Non-registered qualifier racers or non-registered alternates should come to registration during registration hours. You can participate in Friday’s practice day and Saturday morning’s practice. Placement in racing classes cannot be determined until after registration closes on Saturday morning. We will call anyone who is in this situation to registration to let you know whether or not you made it in. Your entry fee(s) will be refunded in any class in which we are unable to place you.

REGISTRATION

While you should guarantee your spot in any national qualifying class by registering for the Regional through MX Sports by the deadline, that is step #1 in the registration process.

COVID is real and still exists. Racing is not immune to it. In order to keep racing in 2021, we must continuously demonstrate that it is safe to do so. Therefore, the following policies are in place for this event:

MASKS/FACE COVERING: You must wear a face covering that completely covers your nose and mouth when you are unable to be a minimum of 6′ from those who are not in your group. Mandatory no-mask no-service areas are registration and concessions. Other mandatory mask areas are: staging for those accompanying a racer, the mechanics area, the result board and any viewing area that does not allow for social distancing. Do NOT leave your campsite without a face covering.

SOCIAL DISTANCING: 6′ markers will be in place at registration and the food concession. Everyone is asked to social distance at this event. There are few areas where that this not possible so please do your part.

EXACT CHANGE: Would be appreciated.

SPECTATORS: Not allowed. A spectator is someone who is looking for something to do. A racer’s family or crew is NOT considered a spectator. Prior to the event, a small number of spectators may be allowed. Our best advice is to check ahead of time. Do not wait until the event weekend to check as we are hard to reach during an event!

CLEAN HANDS: We have hand sanitizer stations and sinks in high traffic and high use areas. We encourage frequent hand washing/sanitizing.

HAND SANITIZER: Bring your own supply for your campsite and walk arounds.

GARBAGE: Please bring your own garbage bags. Garbage bags should be taken to one of our dumpsters for the safety of our staff. Extra bags are available if needed.

PRE-EVENT EXPOSURE:  If you or someone you live with has been diagnosed with COVID (15) or less days prior to the event, please stay home. The exception would be if you have been exposed but are fully vaccinated. If you have any of the COVID symptoms prior to the event, please stay home unless you test negative within 3 days or less of the event.
