AMA Lucas Oil Motocross CHAMPIONSHIP
The Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championships is a 12-round series that stretches all across the United States, beginning Memorial Day Weekend and ending on Labor Day Weekend. The series features three separate championship divisions: the premier 450cc Motocross class, the 250cc Motocross class, and finally the WMA women’s class. All 12 rounds of the series will be featured on SPEED TV with live, same-day and tape-delay coverage, plus three live events on NBC. Times and local listings for all of these events can be found on the Allisports.com/Moto section as they become available.

The new era of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship is here. MX Sports, a Morgantown, West Virginia-based company with a long history in dirt bike racing, has taken over the organizational and commercial rights for the series. Working with the 12 individual event promoters known as the National Promoters Group (NPG), MX Sports has already made considerable improvements with the series in general, pulling together the most compelling television package American motocross has ever seen, as well as making changes in the overall presentation of the series. Most significant among those changes is the move to Saturday-afternoon races for all 12 rounds, followed on Sunday by amateur motocross activities.
