PAYSON, UT (February 18, 2019) – The first set of area qualifiers for the 2019 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Amateur National Motocross Championship, presented by Lucas Oil at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, began in Arizona on February 9th. In order to compete at Loretta Lynn’s, all riders must first compete in an Area Qualifier.
This year, there are 55 Area Qualifiers across 8 regions and 31 states. Riders with the top finishes in Area Qualifiers will move up to their designated Regional Qualifier. The Regional Qualifiers will be held from May-June, and finishes at Regionals will determine which riders will compete at Loretta Lynn’s. The National Championship will take place July 29 – August 3, giving qualified riders time to train and prepare for the competition.
As part of their title sponsorship, RMATVMC will award each registered rider competing in the Area Qualifiers a $10 credit redeemable at www.rockymountainatvmc.com. The credits are issued through the company’s Race Gas program and will be available after registration for the upcoming Regional Qualifiers and National Championship as well.
