AMA National Hare & Hound Series Update

Cycle News Staff | July 14, 2020

AMA National Hare & Hound currently has four rounds scheduled

The following are excerpts from a newsletter from AMA National Hare & Hound…

In March, news came that rounds four, five and six were canceled or postponed. Some of which our great partners clubs were just unable to reschedule with the ongoing challenges. However, we look forward to returning to their regions in 2021. Our schedule has taken a somewhat minimal hit (so far), but we know what you’re thinking: When are we going to race again?

Round one of the 2020 Kenda SRT AMA National Hare and Hound Championship

Currently, our original round seven in Panaca, Nevada is 100-percent a Go. But, of course, things are changing each day in every state, so we will notify you should the event encounter a potential cancellation. If things are able to remain stable from August to December, you can expect the following originally planned rounds for the 2020 championship:

Round Four – August 22, 2020 – Panaca, NV

The Muley Run, Hosted by the Silver State Trailblazers

Hosted by MRAN’s Silver State Trailblazers, round four is set in the scenic Panaca, Nevada. Staged at the County Fairgrounds, this event is known for its monsoon-soaked terrain and fun flowing trail system. It’s a great event for first-time series riders or those looking for a less technical course. This is a motorcycle-only event, in which all classes will race on Saturday. A National number is required unless the racer is a member of MRAN and has a locally approved number.

Round Five – September 26, 2020 – Jericho, UT

The Desert Devotional, Hosted by Sage Riders MC

Round five is hosted by Sage Riders MC at the Little Sahara Recreation area. The event begins in the picturesque sand dunes where series legends have been captured sending it off of the bomb run. This is a motorcycle and ATV event in which all classes will race on Saturday. A National number is required unless the racer is a member of USRA and has a locally approved number.

Round Six – October 10-11, 2020 – Lovelock to Nightingale, NV

Hosted by Rimbenders MC

After an exciting point-to-point in 2019 for their inaugural event, round six welcomes the return of Rimbenders MC to the series. This is a motorcycle-only event. Youth riders will race on Saturday, and Adults will race on Sunday. A National number is required unless the Racer is a member of MRANN and has a locally approved number.

Round six – October 24-25, 2020 – Lucerne Valley, CA

100’s MC: 53rd Annual National

The series finale wraps up in southern California. Round six is hosted by 100’s Motorcycle Club, a club known for putting together creative loops that will test riders of all skill levels. Both Bikes and ATVs are welcome for this event. Youth riders will race on Saturday, and Adults will race on Sunday. A National number is required unless the racer is a member of District 37 and has a locally approved number.

Championship Points Rule

Depsites two rounds canceled, the original rule sticks, and the original number of throwaways as announced at the start of the season will count. Here is more explanation, per the 2020 NHH Supplemental Rules:

NATIONAL POINTS- 2. To be eligible for series awards, a rider must compete in half of the total number of events. If event total is an odd number, the total will round up. The series Overall and Pro 250 championships will count the riders scores from all rounds. Each individual class championship will drop their 2 lowest scores if there are 9 or more events and 1 lowest score if there are 8 or less events. If rounds are canceled during the series the original number of throw aways will be counted. Riders may not use a canceled round as a throwaway. Throwaways are based on the total amount of events raced.
