2011 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series Schedule
Morgantown, W. Va. (December 28, 2010) - Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, announce the schedule for the 13-round 2011 GNCC racing tour. While the dates for the events were announced previously, the series locations are now available, including the announcement of several new facilities.
The Indy 100 GNCC in Gosport, Indiana joins the tour for the first time on May 14-15, and the Rock Run GNCC in Altoona, Pennsylvania debuts on May 28-29. The location for one other GNCC round, on September 24-25, will be announced shortly. GNCC officials are currently exploring venues in the Northern Pennsylvania or Western New York region.
"We're excited to head to these new locations, as well as our existing tracks," says GNCC Trail Boss Jeff Russell. "Indiana and Pennsylvania have a long history in this series and we expect plenty of fans to come and cheer the racers, and plenty of racers to enjoy these new tracks."
The Antoona, Pennsylvania, race will effectively replace the Somerset, Pennsylvania round that ran in 2010, as the two locations are within about 20 miles of each other. The Gosport, Indiana, race, hopes to capitalize on the popularity of the Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville, Indiana, which is usually one of the biggest events of the year.
The series once again opens with the River Ranch GNCC in River Ranch, Florida. As part of the annual Daytona Bike Week schedule, ATVs will practice on Saturday March 5 and race on Sunday, March 6. Bikes will practice on Monday, March 7 and race on Tuesday March 8.

2011 Pro-Am Mx Schedule

Courtesy of AMA
PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce the 2010 AMA Racing Pro/Am motocross schedule. These events are where dreams begin for amateur racers, and where they earn the credentials to line up at an AMA Supercross or AMA Pro Racing Motocross event.

"Our Pro/Am competitors race at these premier tracks for the points, purse money and contingency that will help them get to the next level," said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley. "This year's schedule is one of the best, with 53 events at some of the country's most challenging race tracks and staged by the sport's top promoters and organizers. This schedule will no doubt help prepare the fastest amateur motocross racers on the planet for the pro ranks."

A highlight of the 2010 calendar is the historic Florida motocross facility, Gatorback. Promoted by Unlimited Sports, the location will host the first and last rounds of the schedule.

"Pro/am racers are hungry, not just for the points to get their pro license, but for race wins," said Wyn Kern of Unlimited Sports. "For many of these kids, they need to excel to keep their dreams alive. This creates an unmatched competitive atmosphere and an incredible on-track show for the fans of the sport. The AMA Racing Pro/Am events are two highlights on our schedule, and we're looking forward to two stellar events."

AMA Director of Supercross Kevin Crowther added that the AMA Racing Pro/Am schedule and points process has contributed significantly to the skill and readiness of incoming AMA Supercross riders.

"The AMA Racing Pro/Am program is critical to the natural progression of a rider through the amateur ranks of AMA amateur motocross all the way up to getting their AMA Supercross license," Crowther said. "We are pleased to see such a strong schedule for 2011. The program gets stronger every year and makes our job of licensing new professional Supercross and Motocross riders even more rewarding."

AMA Racing 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 that professional racing demands.

To be considered for a professional motocross license, competitors must have earned at least 75 advancement points (at the time of application) in AMA Racing Pro/Am motocross events in a continuous 12-month period. Points are based on overall finishes in either the 250 Pro/Am and Open Pro/Am classes. Points from each class are not combined.

Yamaha Ready for Battle and the 2011 SX Season
Cypress Calif., December 16, 2010 – Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S. is pleased to announce its entire line-up of teams ready to battle for the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship.
Headlining the assault is James Stewart. Signed to a two-year contract with L & M Racing, James is looking forward to winning his second title for Yamaha on his YZ450F. He’s currently in lock down in Florida putting the finishing touches on his race prep and testing so he can come out with both barrels blazing at Anaheim 1.
Joining Stewart on Team L & M is Texas phenom Kyle Regal. Always a threat to podium outdoors, Regal has spent the last few months honing his Supercross skills turning lap after lap around the Yamaha Supercross test track.
For 2011 Star Racing owner Bobby Regan has placed team management reigns in the very capable hands of Allan Brown. Brown has assembled a new roster of riders to take the YZ250F to the front of the Lites Championship. After racing for the team at last year’s Nationals, Gareth Swanepoel is returning from the 2010 season. New members joining Gareth are Ryan Sipes, Kyle Cunningham and rookie sensation Gannon Audette.
Joe Gibbs Racing is back for 2011 with a two man threat of Justin Brayton and Davi Millsaps. Fresh from a off-season that saw him win international races in both Australia and Switzerland, Brayton is looking forward to bringing his podium streak to Anaheim 1. After a rough end to the 2010 season Millsaps has spent the off-season healing up and getting ready for a 450 challenge in 2011.
Valli Motorsports owner Chad Lanza is excited about the 2011 season with veteran Nick Wey mentoring 450 Class rookie Austin Stroupe. Both riders being new to the team and they are excited about the possibilities the 2011 season holds.
The MotoConcepts Team ended the 2010 Season on a high with Kyle Chisholm taking home the ”Privateer of the Year” honors. Things haven’t cooled off for Chisholm as he took home a well deserved second place at the prestigious Bercy Supercross during the off-season. Another big off-season development for the team was the hiring of David Vuillemin, a highly successful racer in his own right, as team manager. With his wealth of knowledge David will help guide riders Kyle Chisholm, new comer Tommy Hahn and Vince Friese to reach their ultimate goals in 2011.
In addition to fielding an impressive team with Weston Peick, Jared Brown, Drew Yenerich, Joey Rossi, Alex Millican and Jeff Alessi, Rock River Motorsports will once again be on hand at every Supercross supporting Yamaha racers with a wide assortment of OEM parts to ensure that their YZs are running up to their utmost potential.
“We are very excited to have all of our teams returning to fight for the 2011 Racing series and look forward to coming out of the gate at the opener with a strong start to the season” said Yamaha Racing Division Manager, Keith McCarty.“They did a great job representing the Yamaha brand last year and with contingency and parts available in the pits I’m looking forward to an even better finish in 2011 for all our Yamaha racers”.

Courtesy of MX Sports
Morgantown, W.Va. - MX Sports, producers of the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch, announce today the 2011 Regional Championship Schedule. The Regional Championships serve as the final races to seed riders into the National Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch, and only riders who finish in a qualifying position at a regional event are eligible to race the national.

"We're excited to announce this schedule, which includes an all-star cast of regional tracks, including six venues with experience holding AMA Pro National events" says MX Sports Director Tim Cotter. "The tracks have been selected based on their ability to produce large and complicated events."

"The best amateur motocross racers in the world earn their way to the top through the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships," says AMA Motocross Manager Kip Bigelow. "But qualifying to line up at Loretta Lynn's isn't easy. These competitors must race their way through a challenging Area and Regional qualifying system that guarantees a best-of-the-best lineup at the championships every summer. The AMA is looking forward to working with the dedicated and talented staff at MX Sports, and all the local track organizers who will make this happen in 2011."
