In response to the worldwide COVID-19 situation, MX Sports Pro Racing has had to modify its 2020 race schedule. The season opener will now take place Saturday June 13th in Jacksonville, Florida at WW Ranch Motocross Park.
“While the whole world is trying to cope with the ongoing global pandemic that is the COVID-19 coronavirus, we have diligently looked at the impending future of our own championship and the impact this will inevitably have on this annual summer tradition,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “While the series has unfortunately already been affected by this pandemic with the cancellation of American motocross’ longest running event, the Hangtown Motocross Classic, we have developed a condensed and redesigned schedule for the remainder of the championship that will now start a little less than three months from now.”
Coombs goes on to say postponing the start of the season will give the series time to obtain a clearer picture of the coronavirus pandemic and allow ample time for the riders, teams, partners and fans to plan accordingly.
Under the new schedule, the series will run 11 events. Here is the revised 2020 schedule:
Florida National- June 13th 2020.
High Point National- June 20th 2020.
Southwick National- June 27th 2020.
