RIDER ELIGIBILITY AND CLASSIFICATION
1. Pro Am Production Class
a. Pro Am Production will be the sole gauge for advancement to the AMA Pro ATV division. To be eligible to apply for an AMA Pro Racing license a rider must accumulate 150 points based on the points scale below Section H, number 2.
b. Class is a purse paying class.
c. Both motos will be held on Sunday.

3. "A" Classes
a. All "B" class champions of the previous year.
b. All "B" riders ranked in the top three of their class earning at least 50 percent of the points earned by the class champion in the previous year. Ranking is based on year-end series points and not the banquet awards.
c. Riders that have an "A" ranking in any other motocross series. This applies to both AMA and non-AMA sanctioned events.
d. Pro Am Women may compete in "A" classes.
e. "A" class racers may not compete in the Pro Am Production class, but may compete in the Pro Am Unlimited class.
4. "B" Classes
a. All "C" class champions of the previous year.
b. All "C" riders ranked in the top three of their class earning at least 50 percent of the points earned by the class champion in the previous year. Ranking is based on year-end series points and not the banquet awards.
c. Riders that have a "B" ranking in any other motocross series. This applies to both AMA and non-AMA sanctioned events.
5. "C" Classes: Novice skill level riders and riders that do not otherwise qualify as an "A" or "B" level rider. Riders who receive or have ever received any type of OEM factory support in any class are not eligible for the "C" class.
6. Women Class: Pro Am Women are not eligible to participate in the Women's Class, with the exception of co-sanctioned events (i.e. PAMX), in which case, a rider may enter both classes but National points and event awards will not be earned.
7. Schoolboy (15-17): Riders who have ever been classified as a Pro, Pro Am or "A" rider in a non-youth class, are not eligible.
8. Age: For youth classes, age is based on the rider's age on January 1, 2009. Amateur age classes are based on the rider's age on the date of the event. However, riders, including youth, who change age during the season, may stay in the class they started the year in, or may advance to the older division. Points accumulated to that point do not advance with the rider to the new class.
9. Age Classes: Age class racers (i.e. College 16-24, Junior 25+, etc.) may not compete in the Pro Am Production class, but may compete in the Pro Am Unlimited class.
10. Rider Age: Riders must be at least 16 years old to compete, with the exception of the Sport 15+ and youth classes.
11. Advancement: Riders who participate in a higher classification (i.e. "A", "B" or "C") at any AMA or non-AMA local or National event will be considered as advanced to that higher classification and may not return to the lower class. Youth riders who compete in a higher age group may not return to their actual age group.
12. Changing Classes: A rider may petition to move to a lower classification based on class finishes. However, in order to do so, the rider must first petition his/her AMA district and/or the AMA/ATVA Motocross Manager for reclassification, and provide Promoter with a copy of the granted petition, prior to racing in the lower classification.
B. MACHINE ELIGIBILITY AND CLASSIFICATION
1. Class Descriptions: Machine eligibility, including displacement limit and production requirements will be defined in the Class Chart. 2010 models are not eligible in any class.
2. Youth Classes: No engine displacement reduction permitted.
3. Production Rule: OEM motor and matching frame combination model required. Frame geometry must remain as designed by the OEM, including all suspension pivot points. Material may be added for strength but not removed from the OEM frame. Engine modifications, frame reinforcements, and aftermarket A-arms, swing-arms and suspension are permitted. No engine displacement reduction permitted.
4. Modified: All non-production classes are modified. Custom frames are permitted. Production machines are eligible for modified classes.
5. Automatic: restricted to CVT or automatic transmissions and automatic clutch. Machines must be able to idle in gear, with the machine at a full stop, without manually disengaging the clutch.
6. 50cc Limited: Production models. The following may be changed: shocks (limited to a maximum 4" shock travel), tires, wheels (must not change stock width) internal portions of the motor, spark arrestor may be removed (must still meet 99db), sprockets, gearing, clutch, twist throttle, handlebars, grips, handle bar pads, front bumper, rear grab bar, air filter and jetting. Air box lid may be removed or modified. Fenders may be trimmed, manufacturer installed parental speed limiting devices may be removed. Nerf bars or suitable floorboards and working tether cords are required. No other modifications are allowed INCLUDING carburetors, oil injection, air box, gas tank, exhaust systems, wheel base, width, rear axle, A-arm, steering dampener and suspension (with the exception of shocks). However, if a violation is deemed by the referee to be cosmetic in nature, with no performance advantage or willful misconduct involved, he may issue a warning or fine in lieu of disqualification.
The AMA Equipment Standards List in Chapter 2 of the AMA Sports Rulebook, which governs amateur ATV competition, will be enforced. In addition, the following apply:
1. Maximum machine width is 50".
2. Tether cords and nerf bars or suitable floorboards are required.
3. Control levers must have ball ends; axle nuts must have cotter pins or clips; glass components/lights must be covered; horns, bells or other sound devices are not permitted.
4. Sound: Machine sound level may not exceed 99dbs as measured by the stationary sound test procedures, SAE J1287.
5. Fuel: Only petroleum-based gasoline as defined by the American Society for test and materials (ASTM), designation: D4814 may be used. All fuel must be stored in approved containers.
6. Machines may be bored or stroked in order to increase engine displacement, so long as the engine size is stamped on the case and the class limit is not exceeded, i.e., 400cc engine may be increased to a maximum of 450cc in the 450 class.
7. All machines are subject to random equipment inspections any time prior to, during or after the event. Displacement will be measured at the end of the meet.
8. The machine a rider competes on in the first moto is the official machine of the rider for that event, and may not be switched during the event. Provided, however, that the engine may be changed during the event, so long as it is replaced with an engine of the same make, model and displacement.
