The following is a release from the AMA:

AMA Racing has announced the creation of the AMA Western Region Youth Hare Scramble Championship Series. In its inaugural year the series will feature three rounds; two in California and one in Oregon. Future plans call for the series to expand into all AMA Regions.

According to AMA Off-Road Racing Manager Chuck Weir, the progression of young racers is a primary goal of the new series. "This one-of-a-kind series will develop the off-road competitors of tomorrow while letting participants hone their racing skills in an appropriate environment," said Weir. "This is a real step forward in getting younger riders involved with off-road racing."

Riders as young as age four can compete in the 50cc class. The series will feature classes open to youngsters up to the age of 15. Girls between the ages of 12-15 will have their own class.

Weir added that the series will focus on safety while ensuring that riders compete at their own age and skill level.
