New Smyrna Beach, Florida - EPCN Productions is proud to announce the first ever AMA JuniorMotoX, a premium indoor amateur motocross event to be held near Oklahoma City inside the Lazy E Arena. The location is in the center of the US and features a great Arena, covered vendor area and hundreds of full hook up RV sites.
The event will bring amateur racing to a new level with a supercross-style course that is nearly 2,000 feet long, featuring some of the best dirt on earth. Jerry Masterpool will provide input on track design, which will include a separate lane featuring more challenging obstacles for the more experienced riders/classes.
Youth riders will be the emphasis of the event, with twenty-two classes that will be limited to riders 18 years old and under. The classes will also be limited to 250cc and under motorcycles.
Safety will be a priority, with plans to have the Asterisk Medical Unit on site in addition to local EMT units, similar to professional AMA Supercross and Motocross events.
The 2016 JuniorMotoX will run over three days from Thursday, May 12, to Saturday, May 14, with entries capped at six hundred to provide quality track time (maximum two classes per rider). Day one will be practice, the second day will feature qualifiers, and Saturday morning will include the LCQs. The main events will begin on Saturday afternoon, with the premier classes racing on Saturday evening in front of the spectators.
The final race will invite the best JuniorMotoX 85cc riders to compete for the "Jesse Trophy" in memory of Jesse Masterpool. This race will be run under the Masterpool family's guidelines.
Several past and current motocross and supercross champions and riders will be on site to provide coaching and education sessions for the participants.
The JuniorMotoX will be produced by EPCN Productions, the producer, associate producer, or co/creator of the US Open of Supercross, MiniMotoSX, EnduroCross, X Games, Redbull Straight Rhythm, Tennessee Knockout Extreme Enduro, and multiple international supercross events. EPCN's founder, Eric Peronnard, has partnered with Lance Bryson, Sean Finley, and Tom Zielinski to promote and produce the JuniorMotoX. Each of these individuals has extensive experience and a proven track record producing top-quality motorcycle events.
