Here are a few xtra things that you need to understand.Most states Run AMA sanctioned races.The AMA focuses onrights, riding and racing through its government relations work,by sanctioning road and off-road riding activities and overseeing professional and amateur racing events.There are non ama races but I suggest an AMA race!

What Race do I sign up for?
A motocross race usually includes a practice session and two "motos." The combined score of the two motos determines the winner. When you go to the sign up area,there will be an entry fee for each class you enter.The entry forms are straight-forward and basically cover liability and class selection.There are a number of beginning-level classes for kids or adults.
