MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – MX Sports is pleased to announce that online registration is now open for the Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross (RCSX), sanctioned by AMA. For the eighth year, Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida will host the biggest two-day amateur Supercross event in the world. Amateur racing will kick off Sunday, March 12 after Saturday night's Daytona Supercross by Honda, with the finals continuing on Monday, March 13.

With 35 years of experience operating the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at the historic Loretta Lynn Ranch, MX Sports always looks forward to producing this special two-day amateur supercross event at the World Center for Speed, Daytona International Speedway. Unlike the Loretta Lynn Amateur National format, riders do not need to qualify to participate at the event.

"Less than a decade ago, this was all a dream. It's hard to believe we are hosting the eighth year of amateur supercross at the famous Daytona International Speedway," said Tim Cotter, director of MX Sports. "With the help of the ‘World Center for Speed' and Ricky Carmichael, we look forward to producing this event on the same track that the best athletes in the world just competed on the night before."
The class structure includes 35 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, over the course of two days.

"RCSX has quickly grown into a premier amateur race, and I always look forward to returning to Daytona International Speedway in the great state of Florida," said 15-time Champion, Ricky Carmichael. "This event provides the perfect time for me to re-connect with the up-and-coming amateur racers, their families and fans. Of course, we can't forget how much fun it is to watch the guys and girls battle it out on the track in their journey to a number one plate."

Amateur riders and their families are encouraged to come down early and camp on the Daytona infield where hookups are available. Move-in, check-in and camping begins on Friday, March 10, so amateur families can watch the pros compete on Saturday night at the legendary Daytona Supercross by Honda.

Monday's main events will return to for live broadcasts, giving race fans across the world the opportunity to tune in and watch their favorite amateur racers battle for a number one plate.

RCSX will once again serve as the opening round of the American Motocross Majors, which is composed of five premier amateur motocross events in the United States. This event will include OEM support, rider contingency, along with the industry's leading companies in attendance following the pro racing action. In addition, many long-time sponsors will provide on-site activation and support throughout the two-day event.

Ricky Carmichael's Spring National Prep Camp is set to take place the week before RCSX, March 6-10. The camp offers a unique opportunity for participants to learn from Ricky Carmichael at his personal track featuring curriculum from Carmichael's Riding Program.
