American Motorcyclist Association Press Release:

The American Motorcyclist Association has released the schedule for 2014 AMA Pro-Am Motocross competition. AMA Pro-Am Motocross is the proving ground for amateur racers who aspire to compete in the professional ranks of AMA Pro Motocross.

"Today's top amateur motocrossers -- and tomorrow's best-qualified pros -- can be found competing in AMA Pro-Am Motocross," said AMA Motocross Manager Kip Bigelow. "The 2014 calendar is one of our most comprehensive ever, with more than 60 events at America's best motocross tracks, giving these up-and-coming racers an opportunity to race for the points, purse money and contingency that will help them achieve their professional dreams."

The 2014 AMA Pro-Am Motocross competition kicks off Dec. 29, 2014, with the Texas Winter Series. The season wraps up Nov. 30 in St. George, Utah, just after Florida's Mini Olympics Nov. 23-29.

"The AMA Pro-Am racing schedule provides the quality events that are needed to determine a rider's ability and if they are ready to participate in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship," says MX Sports Pro Racing Race Director Jeff Canfield.

AMA Pro-Am Motocross events are open to both professionally licensed and A-class amateur motocross racers. The events allow amateurs to gain experience on America's top tracks and prepare for the fast pace and long motos featured at the pro level.

Pro-Am events feature two or three Pro-Am points-paying classes: 250 Pro-Am, 450 Pro-Am and Open Pro Sport. A rider must earn 75 Pro-Am points in one of the three Pro-Am classes to earn an AMA Pro Motocross endorsement on their professional competition license.
