MORGANTOWN, W.Va - MX Sports, producer of the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, presented by AMSOIL, is proud to announce the official dates for the 2016 National. 

The 2016 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship will take place on Monday, August 1 through Saturday, August 6. This year marks the 42nd running of the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, and the 35th anniversary of the event being held at the historic Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. 

In order to compete in the National, racers must first participate in the national qualifying program. Area Qualifiers serve as the first step in qualifying for the world's most prestigious amateur motocross race. There are over 50 Area Qualifiers in over eight geographical locations across the United States, making it the largest amateur motocross program in the world.

The Regional Championships then serve as the next step to seed riders into the National program at Loretta Lynn Ranch. Only riders who finish in a qualifying position at a Regional Championship are eligible for one of the 1,482 gates spots at the National in August. The Area and Regional Qualifier dates are set to be released next month. 

The Amateur National Championship is the ultimate test of an all-around motocross athlete. With a unique three-moto format, each rider will be put to the test where endurance will be a key factor.
