Soon all the area Qualifiers will be cancelled for LL. Perhaps they will just run the regionals, and the top 8 from them will go to LL. If those can not run, you may see LL canceled this season.

I know this is not what anyone wants to hear-
But it shouldn’t be a surprise to any of us.

Ride man ride! I wish it were warmer right now in Michigan... Get a dualsport bike if you don't have one. There must be all kinds of twisty/turnies around Bethesda

Do you believe everything you read? If it was canceled 2 months before the race, you’d think that every media company would get a press release... yet Mx sports is still taking credentials for applications... right, hangtown Mx has nothing posted about it, Mx sports has nothing posted,

It was posted on a DDNMC members page, did they get hacked, it's possible but why? What's the reason? I think something got posted that wasn't supposed to be public yet. I would guess the cancellation of the entire season is coming soon. I made a post about it within a minute or two either way of this one, and mine was there and then gone, not sure why this one was left up. Hangtown is conducted in a state park. I would say no way in hell an event that big will be held in a state property for at least 6 months.

Edit:Actually it is still up on his Facebook page. This photo was posted after the press release, if he was hacked they were thorough.

While the timing of it may be earlier than expected, this is accurate.

I would expect the cancellation to come from MX Sports or the AMA rather than a venue taking it into their own hands, wouldn't you?In EVERY other sport that has been postponed or cancelled the sanctioning body or promoter has been the one to make the call and announce it...not the hosting venue. Not saying this couldn't be the case, but it seems rather fishy.

Here's to feeling good all the time

I believe at this point the plan is for 11 races, and only minus Hangtown. I checked in with DC, and MX Sports is looking at a variety of scheduling options.

Randy, at this point, saying the series is going to be canceled is like me wildly speculating that you’re going out of business. It’s not particularly productive.

Of course it is cancelled, I was going. sad

Fair enough, that is only my opinion, make your own judgement on any plans you may have for the summer. As I said in my post "I would guess".

I might ram my head into a concrete wall at full speed if they decide to cancel both the Denver supercross AND motocross!

And some of you swear SX is coming back this year grin

3/19/2020 10:31 AM

I'm guessing the Nationals will start later and run later...than usual...and then, after that...we pick-up on SX and maybe run thru MEC...?

But, hey, that's just me...speculating...with a positive attitude.

How about a MX Final that's somewhat "SuperMotocross"....like a Vegas Race that's even more MX and a little less SX than usual...?
We could have it out at The Las Vegas Speedway. Then we could have a n RC Amateur SX/SX Futures race for a few days...?
After that you could have a SX "make-up" race at the same venue.
2 weekends...one load of dirt & sand.
Hell, make it 3 weekends -IF needed?

I just want races, smiles and plenty of Moto.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

We are living through history guys. This will literally be talked about forever. Entire sports world just put on hold for who knows how long.

I agree, but let's hope tracks are able to stay open. My local track in NJ is limited to 50 riders each day. They sell spots in advance for 50 bucks (usually 35).

Maybe we'll finally get that Trans AMA reboot this fall . . .

Stay well everyone, and consider others.
