Spectator Attendance Anticipated at All Events

MORGANTOWN, WV – January 12, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – MX Sports Pro Racing, in partnership with NBC Sports, has announced a 12-round schedule for the upcoming 2021 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing. As the sport continues to navigate the ongoing battle against the COVID-19 pandemic this summer’s racing calendar will welcome the return of some of the most iconic venues in American motocross, with spectator attendance anticipated at every event.

“The 2021 schedule has been developed through a collective effort alongside all of our event organizers, and we’re thrilled to see such legendary venues back on the calendar,” said Roy Janson, Managing Director at MX Sports Pro Racing. “The outlook surrounding the fight to eradicate COVID-19 has provided a sense of optimism amongst our group, which has us hopeful to welcome spectators at all the races while also allowing nearly every one of our events to remain on their traditional dates.

“Safety remains paramount in our efforts to host a successful season and we will continuously monitor all national, state, and local guidelines in an effort to ensure the well-being of our fans, competitors, and series personnel,” continued Janson. “While that may require some level of restriction or limited capacity, it will be in the best interest of all parties.”

The world’s most prestigious off-road motorcycle racing series will visit 10 different states on the journey to crown a pair of national champions, kicking things off on Memorial Day Weekend in the heart of the motocross industry, Southern California. By moving the start of the season to the holiday festivities, competitors will receive a full three weeks of preparation from the conclusion of the AMA Supercross season, which will help ensure that all riders are healthy and at the top of their game for the first gate drop of the summer.

After the opening round the championship will crisscross the country, making highly anticipated returns to venues like High Point Raceway, The Wick 338, Washougal MX Park, Unadilla MX, and Budds Creek Motocross Park before culminating with the season finale on September 11 at Hangtown, the oldest event in American motocross. Along the way, the series will observe four off weekends, further reducing the physical demands of the racers over the course of 29 total events between January and September.

“This is the most prestigious championship in all of motocross and we want to make sure our competitors have the opportunity to be at their best each and every weekend,” explained Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “We’ve listened to the challenges they face over the course of a season and have determined that expanding the overall breadth of the 2021 schedule will ultimately benefit the competitiveness on the racetrack, to which our audience will hopefully be rewarded with compelling title fights in both the 450 Class and 250 Class.”

Defending titleholders Zach Osborne and Dylan Ferrandis will headline a decorated contingent of international talent that will go bar-to-bar over the course of 24 motos across both the 450 Class and 250 Class, battling one another as well as Mother Nature in one of motorsports’ most challenging championships. The most coveted titles in motocross await, as the Edison Dye Cup (450 Class) and Gary Jones Cup (250 Class) carry a legacy that spans five decades.

“Passion has and continues to define the legacy of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. From our incredibly loyal fan base to the fearless racers who lay it all on the line in pursuit of victory, there is something truly special about a summer of American motocross,” added Coombs. “On the heels of a difficult year, the return of our most beloved venues and the expectation to welcome fans back to the race means the 2021 season is poised to rejuvenate that passion that has made this the most storied motocross series on the planet.”

At least two of the three CA rounds are on the Pala property as it has a chance of actually happening.  Regardless of how anyone feels about the layout, etc... at least the races will happen.

Moving Hangtown to the back is about the best they can hope for there.

Of course, we all know this schedule is going to change 2 or 3 more times before it is all said and done.

I wouldn’t get to attached to any rounds in Cali. If gov gruesome has his way the state will still be locked down. Unless the Indian band has some special privileges on reserve lands then maybe the Pala round might go ahead.

Wow no round in florida???  Its the most free state in last year's schedule. I will be surprised if half these races are allowed. Commie NY, CA, and WA ( and probably PA) races have a big chance of not happening.   I'm more excited for this schedule release than the stupid cross schedule. This is where real racing happens.

We're locked down pretty hard, but the tribe owned casinos never skipped a beat.  It's been great for them.

Hangtown should be first, but moving to last gives time to recall Governor Newsom. 

 

Wow a race at Fox Raceway.

And Pala Raceway. 

2 tracks in SoCal.

🤣 😂 🤣 

The tribe can tell NewCum to pound sand.

I would think by May 29, the combination of hot weather and however many vaccine doses have been administered will have pushed the new-cases-per-day down a significant amount.  That's just my take though.

Exactly, which is why when Covid hit it was the first time ever I was happy to have that casino and the ridiculous roundabout that went with it just down the road.  $2 draft beers!
