Welcome to the AMA Amateur Motocross Eligibility Application for International Riders.
 
Any Foreign or Non-US Citizen must submit an application and obtain eligibility approval prior to participating in AMA-sanctioned Motocross activity (relating to both age and rider classification).
 
Please note: A foreign or Non-US Citizen found competing without submitting this eligibility application will not necessarily be disqualified from the current event (determination made by the AMA offices), however their eligibility application may be denied going forward.  The participant may lose any points or qualifying position they earned prior to submitting this application.  Applicants may compete in AMA-sanctioned amateur Motocross events while your application is being processed.  However, the AMA reserves the right to deny the request of the applicant's classification application and any results and/or points earned prior to approved application are null. 
 
AMA Supplemental Rule for the qualifying program for the AMA Amateur Motocross National Championship at Loretta Lynn's:  With the exception of Canada, foreign citizens are not eligible for a ā€œCā€ designated class. (No exceptions, no appeals)
