Class Information

  • FOR CLASSES 1-12 BELOW
    • YOU MUST RACE A MIDEAST AREA QUALIFIER IN ORDER TO ENTER THESE CLASSES!
    • You must register your class(es) with MX Sports online; the entry fee is your cost to participate in the qualifying program at the Regional level.
    • You must also enter your class(es) at the track; registration fees cover your practice and racing at Farm 14.
    • Top 9 in each class advance from each Area Qualifier to this Regional.
    • If you don’t finish in the top 9, OR if you don’t register on time with MX Sports, you’ll be an alternate at the RedBud Regional.
    • Alternates are placed according to power ranking; the more riders you beat at the Area Qualifier, the higher your power ranking.
    • Alternates register at the track and practice. We place alternates during practice. If you don’t get to race, your entry fee is refunded.
    • There will likely be qualifiers in your class(es)!
      • 8 Area Qualifiers x 9 riders per class = 72 possible entries in classes 1-12 below.
      • All classes with over 40 entries will be split into 2 Qualifiers.
      • If you advance from the Qualifier, your next race will be Moto 2; if not, you can ride the LCQ (Last Chance Qualifier).
      • Qualifier or LCQ finish counts as your first moto finish.
      • We will finish all of the first set of motos and qualifiers Saturday and go directly into LCQs.
      • A stopping point will be determined and announced Saturday; racing will start Sunday where we left off.
  • CLASSES 13-14 BELOW:
    • There are no Area Qualifiers for these classes.
    • Online registration is highly encouraged!
    • Any “A” or “B” rider can enter the All-Star classes.
    • You are racing for a Regional Championship award.  There is no advancement to Loretta’s from these classes.
