MX Sports Pro Racing has announced the schedule for the 2012 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. The series will, once again, be made up of 12 rounds and, except for some date shifts, will visit all of the usual venues except one, which has yet to be announced. The final round of the championship, the last two years held at Pala Raceway in California, will be held at a different location but still in Southern California. Will it be held at Glen Helen or the revamped Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, or somewhere else? We will soon find out.

The series will kick off at the Hangtown Classic in Sacramento on May 19.

"We are very fortunate to have so many great, iconic motocross tracks as part of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship-tracks that challenge the racers and have strong, loyal fan bases that come out to see these races," said MX Sports Pro Racing President Davey Coombs. "This series is the pinnacle of professional motocross, and the growth we've seen in the last three years for both the live audiences and television viewers watching from all over the world has been outstanding."

Additionally, the Women's Motocross Championship will be included at eight rounds. Tickets for all 12 rounds of the 2012 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship will be on sale on Moto Monday, December 5th.
