MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – With the start of the season approaching, MX Sports Pro Racing has announced that tickets to select rounds of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, are now available.

Due to limitations surrounding COVID-19, spectator attendance at designated events will feature limited capacity, where access will be confined to public areas and social distancing guidelines will be implemented. The season officially gets underway with the inaugural Circle K Loretta Lynn’s National on Aug. 15, for which ticketing is now open.

“We’re pleased to have the opportunity to reopen the ticket purchasing process for our passionate and loyal fans. We commend them for their patience in waiting for the start of the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. It’s been a challenging year for all of us, but a return to racing is just around the corner, and fans will have the chance to let out all those months of pent up energy by cheering on their favorite riders once again,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “Even though things are going to look and feel a little different this season, we eagerly await the ability to bring American motocross back to those who serve as the lifeblood of the industry.”

In addition to Loretta Lynn’s, tickets are also available for both the Ironman National (Aug. 29) and GEICO Motorcycle WW Ranch National (Sept. 26). Tickets for the remaining rounds of the schedule will be made available at a later date.

Moreover, due to the inability to host large gatherings in certain states, spectators will not be permitted at every event. Currently, the MotoSport.com Washougal National (Aug. 22) and the RedBud National (Sept. 4 and Sept. 7) will be exclusive to competitors.

Additionally, MX Sports Pro Racing has confirmed that the dates for the first RedBud doubleheader will move from Sept. 5 and Sept. 8, to Friday, Sept. 4, and Labor Day, on Monday, Sept. 7, in an effort to better accommodate the needs of participants.

“After thorough communication with our participating manufacturers and teams, it is in the best interest of all parties to move up the dates of the RedBud National on Labor Day weekend,” said Roy Janson, Managing Director of MX Sports Pro Racing. “There are several benefits to making this change, both for the competitors and the series, and should make for a more compelling scenario for this historic event.”
