Monday, June 9, 2014 (Wortham, Texas) – The 33rd Annual Loretta Lynn AMA Amateur National Championship is only one step away and you are wondering is you can race the regional even though you did not score TOP 8 at the Area Qualifier? The answer is “YES” you can. Here is the criteria:
Regional Alternates: A rider must have participated in an Area Qualifier within their region and have a finishing position in at least one moto. Alternates are taken in the order of their power ranking. A rider can be taken as an Alternate when that class has less than 64 entries. The Alternate must be from the South Central region.
You made it to the Regional but then you didn’t finish in the TOP 6 there. Can you go to the National? The answer is “YES” once again. Here is that criteria:
National Alternates: Alternate selection at the National is based on a Power Ranking, calculated as follows – Finish position divided by number of riders in the class; Multiply the result by 100 and then subtract from 100. The higher Power Ranking value will determine the alternate selection. A minimum of 50% of the guaranteed qualifying positions from each Regional will advance to the National, regardless of the rider’s power ranking.
Classes 17.1, 17.2, 18.1, 18.2, 32.1 and 32.2 have different overall positions that qualify a rider. Check with registration or MX Sports to find out what position you need to advance.
