Sandbagging can be a problem but... there are many provisions in place to stop it (including video taping and comparing to other riders), numerous ex-pros watching practics, etc.

If caught, they are ejected from the park, no refunds, etc.

But you are right... it could get very difficult to snag a sandbagger during the first few races.

Classes: Each event will have one "money class" - the class that that gets the prizes. The "money class" will change for each event. The money class for the first event on 2/11 is the 125 Novice class.

I earlier told someone else that I thought there would be other classes being run but that the 125 Novice class was the only "money race".

I was wrong... there will NOT be other "support" classes... at this first race, there will only be ONE class - 125 Novices. All the moola and prizes go to the riders in this class.

They may change for round 2 and add other supoort classes but for Round 1, 02/11-02/13 in Phoenix, it's 125 Novices ONLY!

Sincerely,

Steven Carnegie, AMA Sports Manager

Based on the information viewed to the AMA, Myron Short of X-Card.com has provided the AMA with documentation of what appears to be a legitimate contingency program. If the promoters of Attack MX events run their programs based on what we have reviewed from Mr. Short, participants competing in the Attack MX Series will not lose their amateur status. However, riders competing in cash paying classes or any “A” level classification in any motocross events; will be considered “A” caliber riders in all AMA motocross competition. As I have stated to Mr. Short, it is still the participants and parents responsibility to research state and local laws pertaining scholastic events. In some states, students competing in events, which award cash or even contingency, may be declare ineligible to compete in high school or collegiate sports.

Please understand that this is not the AMA’s endorsement on the Attack MX series, this is only notification that riders will not lose their amateur status for AMA sanctioned events based on the information we were presented by Myron Short of X-Card.com on behalf of the Attack MX series. The information viewed by the AMA is attached below.

Steven Carnegie

AMA Sports Manager
