2020 AMA National Numbers Projections, Round 1

The AMA national number system can seem confusing to some people who are new to our sport or don't keep up with it every week. So I'm going to lay out some general information about the system before getting to the first projection list of the year. If you already know how everything works, you can skip to the projection list. 

- Every year, the AMA combines 250 East/West Supercross, 450 Supercross, 250 motocross, and 450 motocross points into one big list.

- If a rider wins a 450 championship or the 250 motocross championship, he can pick a single-digit as their career number.

- If a rider wins a 250 Supercross championship, he can pick a two-digit career number.

- The top 10 riders in the combined list can choose a two-digit career number if they don't already have one.

- When a rider earns a career number, they will keep that number until they retire, or fail to score 25 points in a season.

- The rest of the riders are assigned a number based on where they rank in the list. The higher they are ranked, the lower their assigned number will be.


Notes about this year (so far):

- Dylan Ferrandis will be eligible to pick a two-digit career number at the end of this year since he won a 250 Supercross title. 

- I have decided not to include a list with #13 included, primarily because it is extremely unlikely whichever rider ends up in that slot will elect to run it in 2020. 

- I have left Broc Tickle in at #20 for now, with the expectation that the AMA will let him retain his career number for the 2020 racing season. At this time, though, I have no idea which way the AMA will go with this situation.
