The 2016 Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross (RCSX) boasts over $147,000 in manufacturer contingency to competitors.
It is rapidly becoming as much a Daytona tradition as the legendary Daytona Supercross by Honda, and this year the seventh annual Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross (RCSX) is set to offer the largest contingency payout in its short history.
The 2016 RCSX will offer a whopping $147,525 in amateur contingency over the two-day event at the epic Daytona International Speedway (DIS) in Daytona Beach, Florida. The RCSX takes place the two days after the March 5 Daytona Supercross by Honda, with qualifying on Sunday, March 6 and the finals on Monday, March 7. The RCSX will receive support from seven major factory OEMs, including Kawasaki, Yamaha, KTM, Suzuki, Honda, Husqvarna and Cobra. In addition to their susbtantial contingency programs, all seven manufacturers will offer trackside support teams on site to assist racers competing aboard those respective brands.
Tim Cotter, Director of MX Sports, which puts on the RCSX, said that the organization is overwhelmed by the support from all of the manufacturers for the seventh running of RCSX
“Not only have these companies posted substantial contingency programs for our athletes, their rigs and staff will be on hand with factory support,” Cotter said.
The RCSX will also serve as the opening round of the 10-round Womens Motocross Championship (WMX). Racers must be pre-approved for a 2016 WMX license before registering to race the event. For more information on the WMX schedule, licensing and rules, click here.
The RCSX class structure includes 36 classes for youth riders on 50cc bikes all the way up to vet and senior classes. The race will follow a supercross format, using heat races and last chance qualifiers to seed the field of riders into a main event in each class.
