  1. PORTLAND, OR – March 19, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The battle for the 2017 title officially got underway on Saturday night as AMSOIL Arenacross’ Race to the Ricky Carmichael Cup kicked off inside Moda Center. Capitalizing on his championship-winning experience from a season ago, Team Babbitt’s/Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki’s Gavin Faith made the first statement of the playoff-style title fight by taking a crucial overall victory in the opening round. In the Western Regional AX Lites Class DrivenMX Racing KTM’s Jared Lesher took his first win of the season in an eventful Main Event that helped vault him to the top of the championship standings. Faith (1) took a crucial opening round win in the Race to the Ricky Carmichael Cup. Photo: ShiftOne Photography The fight to earn every championship point available in the Race to the Ricky Carmichael Cup kicked off with the RMATV/MC Head 2 Head Challenge prior to the 250AX Class Main Events. In a hotly contested final pairing, Faith edged out championship rival Jace Owen and his TiLUBE/Jack Link’s/TUF Racing Honda for a crucial extra bonus point in the Race to the Ricky Carmichael Cup. The win would prove to pay big dividends for Faith at the end of the night. When the first of two 250AX Class Main Events roared out of the gate, Owen put his Honda into the early lead ahead of Faith and Rockstar Energy/OTSFF/Yamaha, in association with Cycle Trader and Rock River, rider Chris Blose. The lead trio settled into their respective positions and began laying down similar lap times, ultimately pulling away from the rest of the field. Owen and Faith traded quicker lap times, keeping the distance between them right around a second for virtually the entire 15-lap Main Event. Blose kept pace as well, keeping both Owen and Faith in his sights throughout. The Race to the Ricky Carmichael Cup’s top seed, Owen, controlled the Main Event until the final lap when he lost his rhythm entering the whoops, which ultimately slowed his momentum enough to allow Faith to surge past and steal the win by just over a half second. Blose followed with a strong third-place finish, with Woodstock KTM’s Daniel Herrlein fourth and Team Babbitt’s/Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki, presented by AP Design, rider Travis Sewell in fifth. After having the first Main Event win slip away from him on the final lap, Owen came out determined in the second Main Event, putting his Honda out front ahead of Faith and Herrlein, with Blose in fourth. Owen set a torrid pace in the opening laps to establish a lead of more than a second, while Faith settled into second, knowing the overall win would be his if he maintained the position. Behind them Blose began to apply pressure on Herrlein for third and successfully made the pass at the halfway point. The top three went unchanged over the second half of the Main Event, with Owen taking the win by 1.8 seconds over Faith in second. Blose rounded out the podium in third, with Herrlein fourth and Sewell fifth, duplicating their efforts from the first Main Event. Top seed Owen missed out on the win by just a single point. Photo: ShiftOne Photography By virtue of his triumphant effort in the Head 2 Head Challenge, Faith (1-2) had the edge when the overall results were tallied, outscoring Owen (2-1) by a single point to take his third overall victory of the season. Blose’s 3-3 finishes landed him third overall, with Herrlein fourth (4-4) and Sewell fifth (5-5). Owen and Faith now sit knotted atop the Race to the Ricky Carmichael Cup standings and 38 points apiece, and both riders will carry red number plates into the second round next weekend. Blose is third, five points behind the co-leaders. Blose rounded out the overall podium in third. Photo: ShiftOne Photography The Western Regional AX Lites Class Main Event got underway with Haeseker Motors/M21 Suspension Yamaha’s Kinser Endicott grabbing the holeshot over Team Babbitt’s/GPF/Monster Energy Kawasaki/MMCR’s Ryan Breece, the champions leader entering the night, and Lesher. The battle for the lead intensified on the opening laps, with Breece moving out front on Lap 2, bringing Lesher along with him into second and dropping Endicott to third. Breece encountered misfortune while leading on Lap 5, crashing in the whoops but quickly recovering to reenter in third. That allowed Lesher to take control of the Main Event, with Endicott in second. Breece battled back to take second from Endicott on Lap 6 before the Yamaha rider lost even more positions on the ensuing lap to Woodstock KTM’s Hunter Sayles and Husqvarna rider Dylan Summerlin. On Lap 8 Sayles and Breece engaged in a heated battle for second, making contact and forcing Sayles off the track and down to eighth place. That allowed Summerlin to move into third. The battle up front settled for several laps until Breece crashed out of second on Lap 12 and dropped to eighth. That gave second to Endicott, who patiently worked his way back to the front after losing positions early, and moved Sayles into third, rebounding from his off-track excursion just a handful of laps earlier. Sayles would get around Endicott for third on Lap 13. Out front, Lesher kept his front end clean and stayed ahead of the trouble behind him to take an easy victory, crossing the finish line 10.3 seconds ahead of Sayles, who secured a hard-earned runner-up finish. Endicott parlayed his holeshot into a podium result in third. The win vaulted Lesher from third in the Western Regional standings into a tie for the championship lead alongside Sayles. Breece fell from first to third, two points out of first. AMSOIL Arenacross will continue the Race to the Ricky Carmichael Cup next Friday, March 24, and Saturday, March 25, from Reno, Nevada’s Livestock Events Center. Both nights will kick off at 7 p.m. PT / 10 p.m. ET. Lesher took a big AX Lites Class win and now sits tied for the Western Regional point lead.

  5. January 21, 2018 Motor Sports Newswire Garrett Marchbanks Captures Second Lites East Class Win and Points Lead WILKES-BARRE, PA – January 21, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – In front of a packed house at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Jacob Hayes took his first victory of the 2018 AMSOIL Arenacross season on January 20. The first 250AX Main Event saw Chris Blose lead the majority of the race with Gavin Faith and Hayes close behind. Toward the end of the race, Faith made the pass to take over the lead and Hayes closely followed. On the last lap, Faith made a mistake in the whoops, allowing Hayes to make the pass and take his first Main Event win of 2018. Faith followed in second and the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Head to Head challenge winner Blose, finished third. The second 250AX Main Event saw Gared Steinke take the holeshot and quickly lost the lead and ended up pulling out of the race early due to bike malfunctions. Hayes quickly took over the lead with Faith keeping him honest throughout the remaining 15-lap Main Event. Blose had to come from a mid-pack start and fought his way back to a third-place finish. In the Lites East Class Main Event, Road to Supercross rider Garrett Marchbanks pulled the holeshot and was able to capture the win and take over the East Coast points lead. 250AX Class Main Event Results Jacob Hayes, Greensboro, North Carolina, Kawasaki (1-1) Gavin Faith, Duncombe, Iowa, Kawasaki (2-2) Chris Blose, Phoenix, Arizona, Honda (3-3) Shane Sewell, Westville, Indiana, Kawasaki (4-5) Jacob Williamson, Swartz Creek, Michigan, Kawasaki (6-6) Daniel Herrlein, Bethesda, Ohio, KTM (8-4) Heath Harrison, Silverhill, Alabama, Honda (9-7) Mason Kerr, Altoona, Iowa, Kawasaki (7-10) Gared Steinke, Woodland, California, Kawasaki (5-13) TJ Albright, Mount Marion, New York, KTM (11-8) 250AX Class Championship Standings Gavin Faith, Duncombe, Iowa, Kawasaki (97) Jacob Hayes, Greensboro, North Carolina, Kawasaki (93) Chris Blose, Phoenix, Arizona, Honda (84) Daniel Herrlein, Bethesda, Ohio, KTM (65) Gared Steinke, Woodland, California, Kawasaki (60) Jacob Williamson, Swartz Creek, Michigan, Kawasaki (54) Shane Sewell, Westville, Indiana, Kawasaki (53) Kyle Bitterman, West Pelzer, South Carolina, Kawasaki (49) TJ Albright, Mount Marion, New York, KTM (33) Travis Sewell, Westville, Indiana (31) AX Lites East Class Main Event Results Garrett Marchbanks, Coalville, Utah, Kawasaki Jared Lesher, Ball Ground, Georgia, Honda Jeremy Hand, Mantua, Ohio, Honda Isaac Teasdale, Robbinsville, North Carolina, Kawasaki Brock Papi, Groveland, Florida, Honda Carter Gordon, Mattoon, Illinois, KTM Josh Mosiman, Menifee, California, Husqvarna Tanner Ward, Woodstock, Ontario, KTM Heath Harrison, Silverhill, Alabama, Honda Tanner Basso, Alpine, California, Yamaha AX Lites East Class Championship Standings Garrett Marchbanks, Coalville, Utah, Kawasaki (47) Isaac Teasdale, Robbinsville, North Carolina, Kawasaki (41) Heath Harrison, Silverhill, Alabama, Honda (39) Josh Mosiman, Menifee, California, Husqvarna (28) Jeremy Hand, Mantua, Ohio, Honda (21) Brock Papi, Groveland, Florida, Honda (13) TJ Albright, Mount Marion, New York, KTM (13) Tanner Basso, Alpine, California, Yamaha (9) Jordan Bailey, Orlando, Florida, Husqvarna (11) Luke Neese, Jamestown, North Carolina, Yamaha (11) AMSOIL Arenacross highlights – Photos AMSOIL Arenacross post-race interview with 250AX overall winner – Video The 2018 AMSOIL Arenacross season returns to Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania for Round 3 on January 20.

  7. The 2021 Kicker AMA Arenacross Series debuts in Starkville Tulsa, OK (January 10, 2021) – The 2021 Kicker AMA Arenacross Series opening weekend took place on Friday and Saturday with Rounds One and Two being held at the Mississippi Horse Park Arena in Starkville, Mississippi. The opening rounds saw a lot of drama, a lot of action and a lot of new faces in the 250 Pro Sport and 450 Pro Sport classes. But three familiar faces dominated a lot of the weekend with privateers Kyle Bitterman and Gared Steinke getting podium finishes throughout the weekend, and Phoenix Racing Honda Team Rider Kyle Peters continued his 2020 dominance into the new year, sweeping the pro classes across the weekend. The new year also brought new 'Pro Only' whoops for the pro racers. The whoops were some of the largest ever seen on an arenacross track and those presented some new challenges for the racers. Round One of the 2021 Series took place on Friday, January 8th. The main show opened with the 250 Pro Heat Races. Peters charged out of the gate and took the holeshot, and from there the race was his to lose. He would go on to win the first heat, followed by Bitterman, on his new GasGas bike, in second and Team Babbitts Monster Energy Kawasaki Rider Isaac Teasdale in third. Teasdale finished second overall in the 2019 series and is a much anticipated return to the 2021 group. However Teasdale recently sustained a shoulder injury in practice that required a visit to the hospital the day before Round One which noticeably impacted his racing abilities in the opening weekend of racing. Heat two showed a very new Steinke, as his work in the offseason was proving to be successful. He won heat two of the 250 Pro class, followed by series newcomers Phoenix Racing Honda Team Rider Cullin Park (2nd) and Team Babbitts Monster Energy Kawasaki Rider Mike Alessi (3rd). Steinke kicked off the first 450 Pro Heat with a victory, followed by Alessi in second and privateer and long time Kicker AMA Arenacross racer Zack Gurley in third. Kyle Bitterman took fourth in the heat, after crashing in the whoops section and suffering some bike damage early on in the race. Peters won heat two in a similar fashion from the 250 pro heat race, followed by Teasdale taking second and Park in third. The first main event of the 2021 series, the 250 Pro Sport, was packed full of great riding, with the best of that being from Peters as he rode to victory without issue. Steinke opened up the race early in second followed by Bitterman in third. These two would continue to battle for second place through lap nine, when Steinke fumbled and lost a few places, and Bitterman took over second place. Bitterman would hang on and finish in second, followed by Park in third and Steinke in fourth. Much anticipated series newcomer Mike Alessi finished fifth overall. The final class of the evening, the 450 Pro Sport main event, opened up with Peters managing to come out of the tight and crowded first corner with the lead. Bitterman and Steinke follow suit in second and third places respectively. Peters efficiency thus far has been his ability to triple-triple in the rhythm section, though when lapped racers come into play that makes it a bit more difficult. Thus far Peters has not had any issue with the lapped riders, but the season is still young. The race ends without drama, with Peters topping the podium, followed by Bitterman in second and Steinke in third. Round Two of the 2021 Series took place on Saturday, January 9th. We opened the evening with Peters leading the pack during the first heat of the 250 Pro Sport class. During lap three Bitterman tried to pass Park on the inside of a turn, causing both riders to go down. Bitterman got back up quickly and resumed racing in the second place spot. The heat finished with Peters in first, followed by Bitterman (2nd) and Park (3rd). The second heat of the 250 Pro Sport class brought the drama. Steinke takes the holeshot and the lead through the whoops, but on the next turn Mike Alessi dove to the inside with a lot of momentum and Steinke went down in the process. Steinke, down a lap, got into Alessi's way after the finish line jump to complete the second lap, making it clear to Alessi he was not pleased with what happened off the start. The heat finished with Alessi taking the win, followed by Teasdale in second and Zachary Butkiewicz in third. Steinke finished in seventh leading to a trip to the last chance qualifier (that he won) before the 250 Pro Sport main event. The 450 Pro heat one race opened with Bitterman on the ground in the first lap, and falling to seventh place. Bitterman would work throughout the heat to move back up to third place by the end. Peters finished the heat in first and Park came in second. The second heat of the 450 Pro class was a lot more tame than the second of the 250 Pro class. Steinke came out of the gate strong alongside Alessi, with Steinke falling behind Alessi into second place. The race finished the way it started with Alessi taking first, Steinke taking second and Teasdale coming in third. The 250 Pro main event, opened up with a little shake up. Due to his heat race finish earlier in the evening, Steinke was left with second to last gate pick, which ended up with him being close to the outside gate to start the race. This gate ended up working for him as he pulled off the holeshot and started the race in first place ahead of Peters. Peters zoned in and was ultimately able to regain his top spot in the class. Peters was able to hold off Steinke to secure the win. Steinke took second place with Park taking third. Steinke switched up his gate position for the 450 Pro main event, from the outside to the very most inside gate pick. Alessi instead decided to try his luck at one of the outside gates. Steinke saw success again off of the start, taking the holeshot yet again and taking the early lead. Peters was able to regain his first place spot a little quicker this go around and taking back the lead by the end of the second lap. Steinke and Park battled for second place for much of the race, with lapped riders allowing for Bitterman to catch up and join the battle for the podium spots. Park starts to pull ahead a bit, in lap eight, from Bitterman and Steinke to secure his second place spot in the race. What looked to be a battle for third between Bitterman and Steinke, ended up being a battle for fourth, as Alessi was able to sneak by the two riders at the end of the race and snag that third spot on the podium. Steinke ended the race in fourth and Bitterman in fifth. And with that, the opening weekend of the 2021 Kicker AMA Arenacross Series comes to a close. The riders have the week to make any needed changes before Round Three kicks off on Friday in Lubbock, Texas. Will someone knock Peters off the top spot in rounds three or four? We will let you know!

  9. Arenacross Is Done; Welcome to Supercross Futures Amateur Events All season long, we've heard rumors that Amsoil Arenacross was not long for this world and that the 2018 season may be its last. When Jacob Hayes clinched the 2018 AX Championship, he announced to the supercross crowd in Las Vegas he was "looking for a supercross ride next year." Well, now the word is out, although not easy to find. In a press release today from Feld Motor Sports explaining supercross' continuing growth, we found this little explanation: As Monster Energy Supercross continues to celebrate major milestones, the unveiling of Supercross Futures, an AMA Amateur National Championship, will transition AMSOIL Arenacross into the new Supercross Futures amateur events as we continue to improve the overall quality of Supercross. Building upon the success of 2018's four Supercross Amateur Racing events, which averaged over 700 entries, the ground-breaking Supercross Futures concept will introduce eight amateur racing events in 2019 and provide greater access to the sport's largest stage to further hone their skills on full-size Supercross tracks, while also allowing top amateur athletes to earn Road to Supercross points toward their professional AMA Supercross license. So that's it. Amsoil Arenacross now becomes Supercross Futures and will compete at eight events next year, on Sundays after supercross. We're not sure if this will be a points-paying championship like arenacross, though, as the SX amateur events were run as stand-alone events in 2017. We'll have more on this developing story, as there will be quite a bit of fallout for riders and teams. RIP, arenacross.
  10. Anyone watch that new AX series? I didn't realize that it had a TV deal but came across Rd1 last night, while eating dinner. I'm glad they started this one up after the Feld series went defunct. In 1 of my side endeavors, we were helping some pros out with the old Feld series in '15+. I think a series like that helps local A-riders get a place to race indoors, because SX just isn't going to work for everyone (skill and budget.) The track looked pretty cool. The dirt was actually tilled a bit. The obstacles look exciting but still forgiving. I'm sure it would work well for the Amateurs as well. A few decent names in the pro class; Owen, Steinke, Peters etc. Cool to see and like I said, it is healthy for the guys that are fast and trying to race indoors w/o breaking the bank to do SX. Hopefully some more names start showing up.
  11. ELLENTON, FL – October 23, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Feld Entertainment® announced that tickets for AMSOIL Arenacross, the most intense indoor professional motorcycle racing on the planet, will go on sale tomorrow, October 24. AMSOIL Arenacross is one of the most extreme racing environments in the world with top professional athletes competing on man-made, custom-designed tracks built inside the country’s most well-known arenas for 12 nights of fierce, high-flying motorcycle racing competition. This year’s AMSOIL Arenacross season, which will kick off at the WSU Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio on Saturday, January 6, travels to 11 states in 2018, from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, plus a stop in Florence, S.C. for the first time ever. The series will then swing through the Northwest, stopping in Colorado, Idaho and Oregon, before returning to Las Vegas to crown a champion on May 4. One of the best-kept secrets of AMSOIL Arenacross is the fully-engaging environment for the fans with the pre-race Monster Energy-fueled Track Party. Fans can walk over obstacles sculpted from 3,000 tons of dirt brought in for each race, compete in a Thor gear change contest, win swag and get an up-close look at the highly-talented professional athletes and their motorcycles used to soar through the air at unimaginable heights and speeds. While Saturday is all about these fearless two-wheeled professionals who will compete in 2018 against the reigning two-time AMSOIL Arenacross champion, Gavin Faith, Sunday will also feature a full day of racing as AMSOIL Arenacross offers the sport’s only developmental platform for amateur racing. Fans can expect to see hundreds of the fastest amateur athletes testing their skills across 27 classes on the same arena-sized tracks as the professionals. Last year’s AMSOIL Arenacross season saw double-digit audience growth across its digital platforms, with Instagram showing the highest increase at 46 percent followed by Facebook at 24 percent year over year. This double-digit momentum is expected to continue as fans will be able to tune into AMSOIL Arenacross on FS1 for the fifth straight year.
