Amateur Classes

Amateur Race Classes, Rules and Info:

WE CANNOT ACCEPT THE AMA ANNUAL MINOR RELEASE CARDS!
The process is very convenient, but it is not approved by all insurance carriers.  Each track must follow the policies and use the releases of their insurance carrier.  Ours will not accept the AMA release.  You should check with each track you go to!

Most of our regular amateur events are AMA and District 14 sanctioned, which means *you need a membership for both.  *Exception: If you’re from another state and have a district membership, bring your card! and you won’t need to join D14.
Save time and join online!     JOIN OR RENEW AMA      JOIN OR RENEW D14
PLEASE NOTE: AMA Youth ($29) and Family ($98) memberships are not available online; you’ll need to get those at the track.

Riders under 18 must bring a parent or LEGAL guardian to registration. Aunts, uncles, older siblings, etc. are usually not LEGAL guardians. If your parents can’t attend an event, they need to send a NOTARIZED consent form that authorizes another adult to be your legal guardian for the weekend. Here’s a sample guardian assignment letter.  Make sure you have TWO notarized!  The assigned guardian should keep one in case it’s needed for emergency medical consent.

I [PARENT’s name] give my son, [SON’s name] permission to ride motocross at RedBud MX in Buchanan, Michigan. I assign [Adult’s name] as [SON’s name]’s temporary legal guardian on [DATE(S)], with authorization to read and sign registration and liability forms required as [SON’s name]’s legal guardian. In addition, I authorize [Adult’s name] to give emergency medical consent for the treatment of [SON’s name] should it be needed.

We can use the same notarized consent form for an entire race weekend as long as the dates are correct on the form.

AMA Rules * District 14 RulesRedBud Facility Info & Policies

For youth classes, your age on January 1 applies for the whole year.  For example, a 15-year-old who turns 16 on March 1 can still race the 85 12-15 class for the entire season (because he was 15 on January 1).  However, once you move up to the next age level class, you cannot move back down. Example: If a 6-year-old enters the 50cc 7-8 year old class, he or she will be considered AMA Age 7 and cannot go back to a 6-year-old class.

For Vet classes, your age on race day applies. You can ride a class as soon as you become eligible, but not before.
