A total of 24 participants will take part in the first ever Loretta Lynn’s Apprentice program at
the 2020 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship.

“As an organization founded on providing a platform for both the motocross and off-road motorcycle industry to compete and flourish at the highest level, the creation of the Loretta Lynn’s Apprentice was a natural extension of the efforts of MX Sports,” said Tim Cotter, MX Sports Event Director. “We are advocates for the industry, and we couldn’t think of a better way to foster a promising future for American motocross than to introduce a program that allows us to bring aspiring talent to the forefront. The Apprentice program embodies the same spirit as the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, but rather than discover the next generation of racers, we’re in search of those who can elevate other vital areas of the sport.”

This collection of 24 Apprentices from all over the country will serve an integral role across an array of occupations vital to the overall success of the 2020 event at Loretta Lynn’s.
