Pro Circuit hopes everyone has a chance to stop by and say hello and enjoy the distinctive opportunity that this event affords the “Pros of Tomorrow” at Daytona International Speedway.”
The RCSX gives amateur racers the unprecedented opportunity to compete on one of the most prestigious motorsports grounds in the world for two days of racing. For riders, family, friends, and fans, there isn’t another event anywhere in the world that presents such a potent package, making this an instant can’t-miss event on the amateur motocross schedule.
MX Sports organizes the event by utilizing over 30 years of experience operating the Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch. The class structure includes classes for youth riders on 50cc bikes all the way up to vet and senior classes. The race will follow a Supercross format, using heat races and last chance qualifiers to seed the field of riders into a main event in each class, over the course of two days. Unlike the Loretta Lynn Ranch format, riders do not need to qualify at other races in order to participate in the Daytona event.
There are still positions available to race on the historic Daytona Supercross track this year! Classes range from 50cc riders all the way to Vet and Pro classes. No qualification is necessary for this event. To register for RCSX, click HERE.
