TULSA, Okla. – For the first time, the Kicker Arenacross Series will be sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Ass’n.

The 12-round series will kick off on the weekend of Jan. 3-4 in Loveland, Colo. There will be seven tour stops and 12 rounds with the AMA National Championship round taking place on March 7 in Amarillo, Texas.

“We have hosted our series championship race in Amarillo for over a decade, and I’m very excited to host the AMA National Championship race there in 2020,” said Kicker Arenacross Promoter Tod Hammock. “Amarillo spectators are always some of the best we see during our series, and the racing talent is always top tier too. I expect the AMA National Championship implications to draw even more racers and spectators than normal.”

For amateur racers following the AMA Kicker Arenacross Series, they must qualify at one of the 11 rounds prior to the National Championship to race in the event. To qualify, amateurs must finish top 12 at one event in their respective class.

For pro racers, all 12 rounds of the series will count towards the AMA National Championship. Pro racers will be awarded points based on how they finish in their class, as has been the case in years past.

“Arenacross is an important part of the AMA racing program and to be able to continue to have an AMA Arenacross National Championship will be a benefit to all of our AMA members, both as fans and as competitors,” said AMA Racing Director Kevin Crowther.
