NEW INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS REQUIRE BOTH PARENTS OF A MINOR RACER, REGARDLESS OF MARITAL STATUS, TO BE IN ATTENDANCE AT THE EVENT TO SIGN THE INSURANCE RELEASE. IF THIS IS GOING TO BE AN ISSUE, PLEASE REACH OUT IMMEDIATELY SO WE CAN WORK WITH YOU. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE EVENT IF YOU KNOW ONE PARENT WILL NOT BE IN ATTENDANCE.

All days of this event are for those who qualified for the Loretta Lynn’s Northeast YOUTH 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.

Practice day on Friday for event competitors only is now considered part of the event. Friday is the longest practice offered at the event. Saturday will be a sight lap and a half only. For those not able to make Friday practice, 2-3 late practice laps are all that will be available on Saturday morning.

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 amateur track
  • The event practice is on Friday; site lap only on Saturday morning
  • TRANSPONDER SCORING WILL BE USED
  • For all Youth classes and Amateur classes 8 (250 C Jr (12-17) Limited) and 13 (Schoolboy 2 (12-17) B/C), the age of the racer on January 1, 2023, will determine their age for the remainder of the year. A racer may move to the next higher age class in the Youth Division only if they will be eligible to do so at any time during the calendar year.

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 CLASS(ES) AT THIS REGIONAL, MAKE SURE TO REGISTER WITH MX SPORTS BY THE DEADLINE.

Racers under the age of 18 in possession of a “Competition Membership” card from the AMA are still expected to have parents (note both parents) in attendance. Insurance requirements now mandate that BOTH parents sign the racing release. If both parents are NOT going to be at the event, please call us prior to the Thursday gate opening at 607/965-8450 so we can discuss an alternative.

All racers must be a member of the AMA. PLEASE JOIN OR RENEW ON LINE BEFORE ARRIVAL AS WE DO NOT SELL AMA MEMBERSHIPS ON SITE. JUST BRING THE RECEIPT OR A SCREENSHOT WITH YOU. YOU CAN ALSO GET A ONE EVENT MEMBERSHIP ON LINE AS WELL. There is a link to the AMA membership site on the left.

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 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 72 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 site lap. 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.
