PICKERINGTON, Ohio ¿ Letters have been sent to each promoter initiating the process for renewing sanction agreements for the 2005 AMA Motocross Championship. AMA Pro Racing has not cut any races from the AMA Chevy Trucks U.S. Motocross Championship schedule which is contrary to what has been posted on a number of web sites and Internet message boards.

“We are in discussions with each promoter holding an AMA Motocross sanction agreement,” said Scott Hollingsworth, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “These conversations with our promoters about the future growth and direction of the series have been positive and productive. Our primary objective in this process is to continue to improve the championship for everyone, particularly spectators and participants. This is the very beginning of the process and discussions will continue. We recognize the tremendous value our promoters have added in helping grow AMA Motocross and have shared this perspective with our promoters.”

The AMA Chevy Trucks U.S. Motocross Championship is comprised of 12 events throughout each summer. The 2003 season begins May 11, at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, Calif., and culminates August 31, at Steel City Raceway in Delmont, Pa.
