PICKERINGTON, OH – march 2, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – The American Motorcyclist Association announces a three-year deal with AX Promotions, who will serve as promoter for the AMA Arenacross National Championship Series.
“We are excited to have a promoter with a vision to restore the series to its former luster,” said AMA Deputy Director of Racing Mike Burkeen. “Their resources and commitment promise to take the series to the next level.”
Robby McQuary, who serves as the principal partner for AX Promotions, shared his excitement to be part of the series he raced in.
“AX Promotions and the AMA are dedicated to a long-term vision of developing this spectacular discipline over the next decade,” McQuary said. “The AMA Arenacross Championship has a huge potential for growth not only in attracting a new generation of riders, but also providing professional racers a Friday evening primetime opportunity to engage with fans. It is our ambition to grow the sport further and multiply the current Arenacross fan base over the next three years.”
Among the exciting evolutions of the series is the launch of a phone app that allows fans to vote for a head-to-head race, support riders financially, and more.
Arenacross is motocross racing on tight indoor tracks in front of an arena full of fans. The AMA Arenacross National Championship Series consists of the best Arenacross racers across multiple classes based on skill, age and displacement.
For the 2023 season, each round will span three days. The AMA Arenacross AX Class competes on Fridays, while the amateur and youth classes run separately on Saturdays and Sundays.
