NEW BERLIN – Unadilla Motocross is set for a big weekend of racing this Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17, as the course will host the Northeast Amateur Motocross Regional. This event serves as the final step for racers from the Northeast Region who are attempting to qualify for the largest and most prestigious amateur motocross race to be held at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Tennessee –– the 37th Annual Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, presented by Lucas Oil.
Participants this weekend are just a small sample of the over 22,000 hopefuls from across the country who attempted to qualify for the AMA Amateur National Championship. Racers are expected from up and down the Eastern Seaboard as well as from Canada.
Hotels, restaurants, grocery stores and gas stations will feel the economic impact from this large group of racers and families who are traveling into the area from great distances beginning on Thursday.
Racers will be attempting to qualify for the Amateur National Motocross Championship in a wide variety of classes, from the Schoolboy class, for racers ages 12-17, all the way up to a senior division for riders over 50. There are also classes for both stock and modified machines. In total, there are 18 different classes of competition.
While there are 1,152 gate positions available at the Unadilla Regional, at the end of the weekend only 108 will make it into a guaranteed spot at the Amateur National Motocross Championship. The racing action is always intense at a Unadilla Regional with so many racers competing for so few guaranteed spots.
Founded in 1969, Unadilla Motocross became an instant hit in the motocross community. In fact, Unadilla is just one of 15 motocross tracks across the United States selected to hold a Regional Qualifier.
With season sponsors such as Lucas Oil, 100% Goggles, Rentals to Go, and Oliver’s RV, Unadilla is able to produce top-notch racing events that are fun for both racers and fans...
