Sorry, but this is kind of bullshit. So you're telling me a guy with a pro license can race pro nationals and then race Loretta's so long as he doesn't score more than 40 points?

How about MX Sports adds a TRUE amateur class (AMX250) on pro race weekends that runs in between the pro motos (in place of the old wmx) so these upcoming guys can ride on the same track as the pros, and longer than a 6lap Sprint race? We could evenly directly compare lap times to the pros and get an accurate assessment of how far off pace they are. What a concept.

Thoughts?

The rule changed from 25 points to 40 points, I'm pretty sure you were able to race in the past as long as you didn't score more than 25 points.

It hasn't been an Amateur National in decades.

I dont think Davey understands that once you've taken money or won money, by all intents and purposes, you are a professional.
The loophole has always been its OK for sponsors to buy your parents a house, buy you a truck, clothes and gifts etc etc and still retain amateur status.
Same for the bullshit Olympics.

Purse money paid to a rider....even if he is 10 racing an "open money class" forever makes you a professional.
Maybe they still have some Pro Am classes but when Jeff Emig or RC are racing 45+ , that's some straight bullshit.
That's like James Stewart racing 30+.
Even off the couch, nobody else has a chance.

It's called the Open PRO Sport and 250 PRO Sport for a reason. Unless it's changed, that is the only two classes you can ride at Loretta's after running some nationals.

Who is Johnny Hopper and why should we care what a guy in a Crossfit shirt thinks about Loretta Lynn's?

Johnny Hopper needs to learn it's not MOTORCROSS, it's MOTOCROSS, then he can be concerned about the rules.

Better to remain silent and thought a fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

It's Loretta Lynn's. Emphasis on the s. It bothers me so much when he says Loretta or Loretta Lynn. It's Loretta's or Loretta Lynn's. He's just a clueless youtuber.

He should also learn the difference between effects and affects.

Yet most of the top amateurs racing Loretta's are making 10 times more racing than the people you are trying to exclude...

If you are in the pro class at loretta's, you aren't hoping to "win some meaningless amateur race"

Your wanting to get a ride - very unlikely if you are already A class
Or have a ride and are waiting for your turn on the pro team - and showcasing the bike and gear you are sponsored by...to sell to the younger generations there.


So - who cares????
The exclusion is written so guys who hoover around the 20 mark or slightly better at pro nationals - COULD race loretta's - because MOST of those type guys are in it for fun anyways

IF you can't beat them - why get your pants in a wad...you aint gonna come out swinging in the pros...
If you race loretta's in A class and DON"T have a ride - AND aren't a garunteed podium finisher - why would you race loretta's other than for fun anyways????

They don't pay back any purse for the area, regional, or ranch, it's costly, and your not gonna earn ANY ride getting 10th
