The AMA Supercross series begins this year in early January and continues until early May. It consists of 17 rounds in the Supercross Class, and 8 rounds in Supercross Lites West Class in January and 8 rounds in the Supercross Lites East Class in February, which the final round has the East-West Shootout in May, and 17 major tracks all over the continental United States. Each has two Heat Races in both classes. Supercross class has 8 laps, and Supercross Lites class has 6 laps, each has 20 riders in both classes, and the top 9 riders will finish and moves on straight to the Main Event.
In the Supercross Class, riders in the top 10 in points who have failed to qualify in any two Heat Races and the LCQ will use a Provisional for the Main Event. In the Main Event, there will be 22 riders for 15 laps in the Supercross Lites Class, and 20 riders for 20 laps in the Supercross Class. In both classes after the Main Event the winner will receive 25 AMA points.
Don’t worry If there’s rain in the forecast. AMA Supercross is a rain or shine event (usually held indoors though). In the rare case of rain and an outdoor event is on hand, the riders will be racing in the mud, and the Main Event will be reduced to 10 laps in the Supercross Lites class, and 15 laps in the Supercross class.
