MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (December 15, 2020) – MX Sports Pro Racing and the ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG) are pleased to announce the 2021 schedule for the ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX), an AMA National Championship. The 36th Annual ATVMX Series will feature 10 rounds for the AMA Pro class and 9 rounds for amateur competitors.
The 2021 season will kick off with AMA Pro ATV racing at the World Center of Racing – Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida on Tuesday, March 9. From there the series will head to 3 Palms Action Sports Park in Conroe, Texas, on April 10 and 11 where round one for amateur competitors will take place, and the second points-paying event for ATVMX Pro.
“We are gearing up for 2021 with some changes to our schedule,” said 2020 National Champion Chad Wienen. “This is going to be a fun year with some tracks that we have raced at before, and to turn over some memories that we have created at those venues. This looks to be one of the best schedules we have had, and we can’t wait to see you all in 2021.”

On May 15 and 16 round three will return to the famous High Point Raceway in Mount Morris, Pennsylvania, where ATVMX competitors have not raced since the 2018 season. Then two weeks after that the series will return to Aonia Pass MX in Washington, Georgia for the fourth round of racing.
The series will then move onto popular spots such as Sunset Ridge MX in Illinois, Pleasure Valley Raceway in Pennsylvania, Unadilla MX in New York and RedBud MX in Michigan. For the final two rounds of racing the ATV Motocross Series makes its return to the legendary Loretta Lynn Ranch in Tennessee on August 14 and 15 and then Briarcliff MX in Ohio for the season finale on September 4 and 5.
“I am looking forward to the 2021 season, with being on a new machine aboard the Phoenix Racing team and the new tracks we are hitting, I think it’ll be a really fun and hopefully winning year,” said Joel Hetrick. “The 2020 season was great, but I feel like I was one race away from earning my third championship. I’m going to be working hard to claim that number one plate back.” Hetrick continued, “The team is putting a lot into this program and we have made some huge changes that are going to improve it. We are excited to go racing in 2021!”
The ATVMX series has been the home for four-wheeled ATV racing since 1985 and remains America’s premier ATV racing series. The series features the AMA Pro division, supported by 40 amateur classes.
