IRVINE, CA – April 3, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  The 2017 AMA EnduroCross Series dates have all been confirmed with a seven round series set to kick off on August 19th inside the Orleans Arena.

The opening round will be back at the venue where the first AMA EnduroCross event took place in 2004, the Orleans Arena. For the first time since that first race, Las Vegas was not part of the 2016 championship due to schedule conflicts so the series regulars are looking forward to being back in Vegas.

Round two will see a first time visit to Reno, Nevada. The large floor of the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center will allow for an awesome track and there are plenty of materials to create challenging obstacles.

Denver, Colorado will host round three of the series. This venue has hosted the second most EnduroCross events over the years as it was added to the schedule in 2007, the first year of a multi-round series for AMA EnduroCross.

Round four will visit the XFINITY Arena in Everett, Washington. This venue has always proven to be extremely popular with a packed house and is known for slippery logs and wet dirt.

For round five, the EnduroCross series will visit Scottsdale, Arizona for the second year. The arena was packed for the first ever event last year with fans cheering on many of the series regulars that call Arizona home.

The Ford Idaho Center will host the penultimate round of the series and this venue is known for some of the largest logs and rock sections that challenge even the best riders. This has made for spectacular action and unpredictable racing over the years.

Finally, the 2017 series will conclude inside the Citizens Business Bank Arena, in Ontario, California. Ontario has hosted the final round for the last three seasons now and attracts a lot of the motorcycle industry professionals looking to see the champions crowned.

Look for more news on some enhancements to the race format in the coming weeks.

Boy, going to be smokin' hot in the pits out on the tarmac!

Swamp ass will be an issue.  Low humidity or not, 110 is still freaking hot.

Not one event east of Denver! Unbelievable !!!  West coast endurocross championship.  Looks like another exciting style of motorcycle racing going down the tubes. Next thing will be they announce  NO TV viewing or live stream of races so only about 5000 people at the races see the races like last year. No fan base to follow or see the racing. Look at Superenduro it only had 4 races for the whole race series including the Taddy retirement party race in poland which was at least live streamed. Hard to follow a race series or have interest in the racing when you can not see or watch the races in some manner, No one cares.  Amazing to me in this day and age of streaming video technology of live events broadcasting that they are not marketing any of this racing for viewing audience.

Supercross only live motorcycle racing on TV, great TV ratings for fox. 60,000 fans at race 4 million viewers on fox 6 million streaming world wide.  Arenacross faster more exciting races but only 5000 fans at a race delayed broadcast weeks or months later 400,000 viewers. No streaming or world wide streaming no fan base viewing races.  Its all about putting viewers ass in the seats seeing the races

Every year I get my hopes up for a East Coast round.
And every year I get disappointed again.
