ATVA MX National

Transponder Scoring to be featured at the 2007 AMA ITP/Moose ATV National Motocross Championships presented by Parts Unlimited

Morgantown, WV - The ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG), in cooperation with AMA Racing and ATVA, announce that for the 2007 AMA ITP/Moose ATV National Motocross Championships, transponder scoring will be used at all events, provided by Trackside Software.

“We are so pleased to team up with Trackside Software for ATV racing,” commented Sam Gammon, Director of the ATV Promoters Group. “The addition of transponder scoring to the series will further elevate the series to the top level of ATV racing.”

Trackside Software is owned by John Dains, a former ATV racer himself. Trackside Software is the leader in event electronic scoring, providing official transponder scoring services for the AMA Air Nautiques Amateur National Motocross Regionals and Championship Final at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, as well as the Lake Whitney Spring Classic and other premier amateur racing events throughout the country.

The unit consists of an electronic device secured inside the pocket of an elastic band and worn on the outside of the rider’s racing boot. Electronic scoring may help alleviate potential problems in the event of inclement weather conditions, such as rain and mud.

In the AMA Pro ATV class, transponder scoring will enable real-time racing results via the web on the official website of AMA Pro Racing at www.amaproracing.com. In the amateur classes, individual racer lap times will be posted daily at www.atvmotocross.com.

Transponders can be purchased for $100 and feature a two-year warranty. They can also be rented for $20. An $80 deposit must be posted for all rentals, which deposit will be repaid upon safe return of the unit. Units should be purchased in advance by going to www.mxtransponder.com, or by contacting Trackside Software at (877) 860-1662. As a convenience, units will be available for purchase at the first three events. After the third event, all transponders must be purchased directly from Trackside or rented at the track.

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.
