Texas Winter Series

2016 FMF AMA Texas Winter Series


Deemed the “ROUGHEST, TOUGHEST” series in the state of Texas, the 16th Annual FMF AMA Texas Winter Series will once again challenge Texas riders against some of the top out-of-state riders that come to the Lone Star state to escape their frozen ground.  As recognized by the AMA as the sole “featured series” in Texas, competition from around the country comes to showcase their talents on the top tracks and against the top riders of Texas.  The Texas Winter Series also offers the first AMA Pro-Am series of the year in the U.S. to riders bidding for their Pro Motocross license.

One of the many traditions of the series offers Mini’s racing on Saturday and Big Bikes on Sunday.  The Texas Winter Series is also the “LARGEST, RICHEST” series in the state and surpasses $300,000.00 in great awards and contingency product that is handed out at the final round to the TOP 10 finishers in each amateur class that compete in 4 of 5 rounds.  Those that have NOT competed in at least 4 rounds will be dropped and everyone else will move up for overall series awards.
