The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is back on track for racing. The series announced a plan for nine rounds of racing, starting August 15 at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane, Tennessee.
The season was supposed to start this month in Indiana, but rising COVID cases forced the cancellation of the season opener and subsequent rounds.
Social distancing guidelines will be in place at all arounds including limited credential access to the paddock. Facemasks will be required, and handwashing stations will be installed. Some events will see limited spectators depending on local health department protocols.
“While we continue to navigate through these challenging and continuously evolving times of the coronavirus pandemic, we are confident that we’ve developed the framework for a high-caliber championship schedule that can be successfully implemented,” said Roy Janson, MX Sports Pro Racing Competition Director. “Although we respect the unpredictability of scheduling any live events during these uncertain times and are sensitive to the hardships many people are going through, we remain committed to making our best effort to host the world’s most prestigious motocross championship. Thanks to the tireless and cooperative efforts of our event organizers, competitors, sponsors and partners, not to mention the ongoing communication alongside local officials, we have an opportunity to prioritize the health and well-being of everyone. We will conduct these events in a safe environment by implementing several policies, all in an effort to control as many variables as possible.”
