Presented by Parts Unlimited

ATVA MX NationalsMorgantown, WV - The ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG), in cooperation with AMA Racing and ATVA, announce the schedule for the 2007 AMA ITP/Moose ATV National Motocross Championships Presented by Parts Unlimited. While the dates and locations have not changed from the originally released schedule, some clarification is necessary.

“There’s been no shortage of rumors regarding the status of the Echeconnee Off-Road Park event, which will remain on the schedule for 2007,” explained Steve Whitelock, AMA Pro Racing Motocross and Supercross Director. “The facility owners have made changes within their organization, and we have every reason to expect the same quality racetrack and event that we’ve always had at Echeconnee.” Accordingly, the season schedule remains unchanged for 2007, and is listed below.

“The AMA, ATVA and ATV Promoters Group have worked together to achieve the best possible schedule for 2007,” explained Birch Creek event promoter Carl Reynolds. “Traditional dates are key to a series approaching its 21st season. When a race has become a must-attend event within the local community as well as the racing community, it’s important to keep it on its time-honored date. We’ve accomplished that while moving newer events to dates better suited to the available daylight hours and area climate. We also felt it was very important to give racers the every-other-weekend schedule they prefer. All in all, this is a great schedule for racers, fans, sponsors and everyone involved with the series,” continued Reynolds.

The series Awards Ceremony and Banquet is set to return to the Grand Hotel and Convention Center in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee on November 10. Recognition and awards are given to the top 10 finishers in each class. Stay tuned to www.amaproracing.com, www.atvaonline.com and www.atvmotocross.com for race results and continued series updates.
