Daytona Amateur Supercross Race is Now Open
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (January 4, 2023) – Pre-Registration for the 2023 Monster Energy Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross (RCSX), sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is now open online. Register today for the 14th annual event at Daytona International Speedway (DIS) in Daytona Beach, Florida. This event hosts the largest three-day amateur supercross event in the world.
All the action begins on Saturday night with the 53rd running of the Daytona Pro Supercross. Then on Sunday, March 5th amateur racers will take to the track for qualifying, with main event motos concluding on Monday, March 6th. Daytona Vintage Supercross (DVSX) takes place on Tuesday, March 7th featuring 24 vintage classes and 13 modern classes mixed into the racing action. In conjunction with DVSX racing on Tuesday, the ATV program will continue to include the AMA Pro ATV and Pro Sport classes.
With Daytona’s facility and Ricky Carmichael’s leadership it is sure to be an unforgettable weekend inside Daytona International Speedway. MX Sports, the same organization that hosts the largest amateur motocross race in the world – Monster Energy AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented at Loretta Lynn Ranch – is always eager to produce this special three-day program. Unlike the Loretta Lynn Amateur National format, riders do not need to qualify beforehand to participate in the event.
RCSX will once again serve as the opening round of the American Motocross Majors, which is composed of five premier amateur motocross events in the United States. This event will include OEM support, rider contingency, along with leading companies throughout the industry in attendance following the pro racing action. Long-time sponsors will also be on-site providing activation booths and support throughout the three-day event.
Amateur riders and their families are encouraged to come down early and camp on the Daytona infield where hookups are available. Move-in, check-in and camping begin on Friday, March 3rd, so amateur families have the opportunity to watch the pro racers compete on Saturday night at the legendary Daytona Supercross. Tickets to the Daytona Pro Supercross are not included in your RCSX registration. You can purchase tickets online by clicking HERE for the Pro Supercross through Daytona International Speedway.
“We once again can’t wait for March to get here,” said Director of MX Sports, Tim Cotter. “With the ongoing support from Monster Energy and Ricky Carmichael, we are excited to continue to hold this prestigious event and help gain more exposure for our athletes.” Cotter continued, “This year we will also continue to celebrate the heritage of our sport with Daytona Vintage Supercross.”
The class structure includes classes for youth riders on 51cc bikes all the way to Masters (50+). The race will follow a supercross format, using heat races and last chance qualifiers to seed the field of riders into a main event in each class over the course of two days.
