Supplemental Rules

We follow AMA rules. Below are just a few key rules that are strictly enforced. For full AMA rules, please visit www.americanmotorcyclist.com

For Youth classes, your age on January 1 applies for the whole year. For example, a 15-year-old who turns 16 on March 1 can still race a 12-15 age class for the entire season (because he was 15 on January 1). However, once you move up to the next age level class, you cannot move back down.

For Vet classes, your age on race day applies. You can ride a class as soon as you become eligible, but not before.

The CVTR is AMA sanctioned and follows the AMA rulebook, available online at www.americanmotorcyclist.com  Click on the 2017 AMA Racing Rulebook link to access the .pdf file. For these events only, all racers must be AMA or ATVA members. Membership can be purchased at the track or online at www.ama-cycle.org Membership fee is $49/year.

Riders under age 18 must have a parent or legal guardian at the track with them at all times. Parents CANNOT drop off a minor, sign them up and then leave. If you’d like another adult to be responsible for your child at the track, you’ll need a NOTARIZED letter assigning that person as your child’s legal guardian. You will want a second copy for the guardian to keep in case your child needs medical treatment. Sample guardian assignment letter: I authorize Don Smith to be legal guardian of my son Jim Johnson on May 16/17th, 2017 while he/she races and/or practices motocross at Hawkeye Downs.  In addition, I authorize Don Smith to complete all necessary registration forms and sign as Jim’s legal guardian, and I authorize Don Smith to give emergency medical consent for Jim if necessary. Must be Notarized by the legal guardian(s)
