In the gate at the Red Bull AMA Amateur National MX Championship

The Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch is the world’s largest and most prestigious amateur motocross race and serves as the graduation of young athletes to the professional ranks of AMA Motocross and Supercross.

The national qualifying program consists of 52 Area Qualifiers (February through May) and 12 Regional Championships events (June) hosted at select motocross facilities across the country. The qualifying system culminates in the National Final (first week of August) at Loretta Lynn’s.

Nearly 25,000 racers attempt to qualify in 33 classes for the 1,400 available positions at the National. Christened "The World's Greatest Motocross Vacation," the National event has served as a launchpad for some of the biggest names in professional motocross and supercross, including Ricky Carmichael, James Stewart, Ryan Villopoto and Ryan Dungey.
