We are proud to have their support for EnduroCross. This event has already garnered a tremendous amount of attention as we are expecting the top Professional Off-Road racers in the world to participate.”

“We are equally excited to participate as the sanctioning body for EnduroCross,” stated Doug Neubauer, Director of AMA Sports for the American Motorcyclist Association. “EnduroCross is a unique and innovative concept for the Off-Road industry.

With the addition of AMA’s participation, the prestige of a Number One AMA Championship plate is also available. “This is just more great news for EnduroCross,” explained Clark. “Just like the AMA National Hare & Hound, the Hare Scrambles and the Enduro Series, EnduroCross will also have an AMA Championship plate that riders will compete for… a valuable achievement for both the rider, their sponsors and their supporting teams.”
