kids under 11 are free!
Most often registration will be in a tent or building on the outskirts of the track located in the Paddock. Check out your event information for venue maps and locations of registration. Be sure to keep an eye out for the signs that say FLAT TRACK FUTURES REGISTRATION, pointing you in the right direction.
To expedite your check-in process, please be sure you have your AMA membership card. If you need to renew or purchase an AMA membership, you will be able to do so on-site.
If you have registered to race online, you will only have to sign a release form and collect your rider packets which will include multiple stickers for practice and sponsor contingencies, event schedule, etc.
FRIDAY OPEN PRACTICE will run by class, we will try to run as many 4-6 lap sessions as we can throughout the afternoon, but will also be making sure we stop for track maintenance if needed.
PARKING: will be self serve, but we will try to tighten everyone up as parking could fill up. Again, please refer to the venue map to verify where competitors will enter the parking area. Parking staff will get you parked as quickly and efficiently as possible. If you want to park with friends, be sure to be in-line with them as we will not be able to accommodate special requests as vehicles are flowing into the parking area.
ON RACE DAY we will run through the practice order for all classes. Please get to the staging line early to be sure you practice with your class. Once practice is complete, we will begin heat races for each class.
We will generally take a break after all heat races are completed. After the break, we will run the main events for each class. Again, we urge you to pay attention to the race order and get to the staging area early to get called to the gate.
We will be awarding trophies in all classes. Trophies will be distributed after the last main event or possibly directly after each main with a live podium experience.
After the main events, the infield pit party and live music will kick off! Everyone with a pit pass or general admission is WELCOME!
