New Area Qualifier at Florida’s Seminole MX Added to MX Sports’ Air Nautiques/AMA Loretta Lynn’s Schedule
Morgantown, WV – MX Sports, producers of the Air Nautiques/AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships at Loretta Lynn’s, has announced an additional Area Qualifier round in the Southeast Region. Seminole Tribe MX in Clewiston, FL, will host the race on April 21 and 22, completing the Southeast Region with eight qualifying races.
“Oh yeah, we looked at the track and found it would make an excellent addition to the program,” said MX Sports’ Systems Manager Tim Boryk. “Great people and a great race track down in Florida.”
The track is located further south in Florida than previous qualifiers, which brings a race closer to a huge group of amateur MX talent. Located in the heart of Florida’s Big Cypress Indian Reservation, the Seminole MX track and staff are ready for the MX Sports’ program. “We’re so excited to host a race of this caliber at our track,” says Seminole MX Manager Jack Gorton.
