The following is from MX Sports, organizers of the 2016 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship:
MX Sports is pleased to announce two new partners for the 35th Annual Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by AMSOIL. Both ProX and WyoTech will join the star-studded line-up of sponsors on August 1-6 for the AMA Amateur National held annually at the historic Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
With over 40 years of experience, ProX will be joining the National lineup in 2016. Specializing in high-quality internal engine components such as pistons, connecting rods, crankshafts and valves, ProX is a perfect fit for the world’s largest and most prestigious amateur motocross race. Founded in 1975, ProX has expanded to reach dealers and distributers in more than 70 countries worldwide, and is eager to help qualified racers from all over the Nation.
“Loretta Lynn’s is the race of the year, and ProX Racing Parts is pumped to be a part of it,” said Laura Antenucci, ProX marketing department. “Being able to support the best amateurs in the country is an honor and we are excited to see all the racing action during the week. For over 40 years, ProX offers engine components for nearly any bike. You can be sure you’re ready for the next heat with high quality and assured performance! Stop by our booth during the week to see all the hard parts we offer.”
WyoTech will also join the Amateur National Motocross Championship family this year. WyoTech is a technical school that specializes in advanced training on various motorcycle brands. With their unique sponsorship, WyoTech will be able to reach out to an audience that already has the passion for motorsports. The program’s hands-on classroom experience, enables students to excel above their competition and expand the limits of normal motorcycle mechanic work.
“WyoTech is excited to partner with MX Sports and help support its role in the motorsports industry,” said Chris Barton, Campus Director and Academic Dean, WyoTech Daytona. “MX Sports appeals to a wide demographic, from amateur to pro, and seeks to further participation in the motorsports industry. This mission aligns with WyoTech’s goal to train entry-level motorcycle and marine mechanics and prepare them for successful careers in the motorsports industry. We look forward to building our relationship with MX Sports in the future and finding ways to grow and be successful in the motorsports industry together.”
ProX and WyoTech will be located in the Sponsor Village throughout the week offering amateur support. WyoTech invites anyone looking to train for a new career to stop by and inquire about their Daytona motorcycle division campus.
“Introducing two new companies to a lineup of an already all-star team is exciting,” said MX Sports Director Tim Cotter. “The ProX team has been involved in motocross for many years and has supported it at a high level, while WyoTech is the first of its kind for Loretta Lynn’s. The WyoTech educational systems can provide great opportunities for our racers and race fans that are at the crossroads of their life and making those very important career decisions.”
The National class structure includes classes for youth riders on 50cc bikes all the way up to vet and senior classes. The race will follow a three-moto format, taking place over the course of a week. Participating riders have previously raced and qualified at Area Qualifiers and Regional Championships to participate in the National.
