The 2023 Mid America MX series will consist of six (8) total rounds.
Each rider will get one (1) RACE throw-out. Throw-out race would be your lowest scoring races you competed in or would cancel out a missed race.
Each rider MUST ride SIX (6) races to be considered for the YEAR END points championship. Cancelled events will be rescheduled at the soonest possible opportunity. In a circumstance that an event cannot be rescheduled, the required race numbers may be reduced. The event may be rescheduled to another venue if necessary.
Each race’s first moto gate pick will be determined by random computer pick order. This includes pre registration for each event. If you pre register for an event, you still need to report to the office before you are officially registered for the event. If a rider is late for signup (after the race order has been completed) the computer will automatically place the rider as the last gate pick. If a rider changes classes after the race order has been completed he/she will have last gate pick and may have back to back motos.
Event give-a-ways will be given out on a first come first serve basis. This means the first to report to the Registration office at each event. Pre registering does Not guarantee you give-a-ways. Give-a-ways may not be available at all events.
In the event of cancellation after an event is started, rain-checks may be given for part or all of the race fees that have been paid. Rain-checks are only good for the venue they are issued from. Gate fees refunds are up to the track owner and may not be refunded.

A rider must complete at least one lap of at least one moto under their own power before being scored for that moto. This is per class. If you are riding for points in more than one class you must complete at least one lap of at least one moto in each class to receive MAMS series points in each class.
Riders only starting one moto but receiving a DNF in that moto will receive 1 (ONE) point for that class for that race in MAMS series points.
