The schedule for the 2013 season of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship was recently announced, and the AMA Pro Racing series will be visiting two new locations during its 12-round motorsports season.
One of the new circuits will be Southeast’s Bristol National at Muddy Creek Raceway in Tennessee. The other new location has yet to be announced but is rumored to be in Indiana, Cycle News reports. Traditional stops at raceways like Unadilla, Thunder Valley, Budds Creek and more fill out the remainder of the schedule.
“We are very proud to continually bring Pro Motocross to the most iconic tracks in the sport’s history, as well as new markets and racing facilities, which both provide excellent fan amenities and race circuits that will showcase the top riders in the world,” said Davey Coombs, president of MX Sports Pro Racing. “This series has experienced tremendous growth in the past five years and we look forward to the continued success.”
The season will kick off on May 18 with the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, California, and conclude on August 24 at the Lake Elsinore in Southern California. While this condenses the series more so than in years past, it shouldn’t affect much of the racing, according to the news source.
